The Nikon Nikkor 24mm f2 Ai-S lens

So – my 35mm F/2 lens is kind of broken now. The light meter in the cam does not work with it, which does not stop me shooting, but it is certainly annoying. So I bid on eBay for a 24mm f/2, only two lose by £5 with two seconds (TWO SECONDS) to go. The current bid with 30 seconds to go was £98.00, I slapped on a huge proxy bid of £171, only for some guy from the Russian Federation to raise my bid with two seconds on the clock.

But long story short, I found another lens the next day and won it for £148. It was meant to be I tell you.

Sexy thing.

I have a roll of neopan 1600 sitting in my cam at the moment, so I’ll be using that up this weekend with the 24mm. Happy times. I still want to get my 35mm fixed, though. Never used a 24mm before, but as things stand, 35mm is home.

So yeah, Kevin Thom was over from Canada a few weekends ago. Good to see him again. Took a photo of him in the men’s toilets of a pub while my flies were open, that will come up at some point.

That’s it for now. I promise I’ll make the comments button more obvious when I have the time.
