    A couple of scenes from North East England over the past week or so, all taken with manual legacy lenses (Sigma 24 f/2.8, Zuiko 50mm f/1.8, Zuiko 135mm f/3.5).

    I never even use my automatic focus stuff any more. So satisfying to get results from kit like this - a second hand EPM1 and a collection of prime lenses, gear that cost me only around £200 in total.

    Yeah the "Cotton grass.again" is really something.

    Thanks all :) I find myself enjoying photography much more again when I'm forcing myself to use manual primes, brings back something of the old challenge.
