    I start this thread by advice from "dhart". And in this thread I will show some photos that I will take during the rest of this year.

    As some of you know, I decided to go with just one lens (pana20) and we have had some debate in my other thread whether this is a good way to go or not... But I'm confident and will stay faithful with just having one arrow in my quiver.

    So as dhart adviced I start the thread where this all started, in January this year during the birth of my third son.

    Hey Frans... I'm glad you decided to do this... I will enjoy following your journey through time capturing images of your life with just the wonderful Pany 20 lens. Cheers!

    Frans... thanks to your focus on the 20, I have enjoyed putting mine to use again. :smile: It has been out of use for quite a while, due to my bag offering many competing choices... so, it's nice to shoot with the 20 again. AWESOME lens!

    I'm shooting for at least a month, with just the Vivitar 24, in our August challenge, over at SC. Today I wished for AF (butterflies), but the FL was just fine. Very comfortable with single FL.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what you share.

    I've never owned a 40 mm (35 mm FOV) lens but always thought I would like one. When I shot 35 mm film rangefinders with primes, a 35 mm lens was my favorite, everyday tool, but I always thought a 40 would be nice.

    Thanks for sharing.

    40mm is great! Can't believe that folks are calling it the oddball... IMO it's just the perfect angle for a lot of situations.

    I encourage people to start their "own" threads! I would love to see more personal dedicated threads

    Still enjoying my new pany20. Great to have a almost quite lens (one of the cons with pl25)
    Also loving to get some 35 fov perspective. Get me right, the pl25 is wonderful, but IMO its harder to get interesting shots due to its 50mm FOV.

    Great work so far!

    You've got me interested in starting my "own" thread. Now I just gotta figure out what lens to use. :D

    Thank you ! Actually I had some luck there, the nurse pointed her giant spotlight at us and I switched to spot metering and I got my shot.

    Another one from the week. Too bad my daughter did that grimace anotherwise it's been a true keeper. The AF on this lens is not really up to pl25 standards, so it's kinda odd feeling to delete some missed focus shots. But I guess it's a learning curve. You can't get everything:)

    Frans... that 20 isn't holding you back one bit... but rather, is serving you very well. This thread may well become quite an epic testament to the "twenty"!

    I think you're getting good shots out of this lens.

    I'm doing the same as you these days, only using the 20 mm, and I'm getting to like it. :)
