I believe the M 50mm 1.7 was the best of the best (never got one, though).

If this sharp-as-a-tack shot is an example, I can see what the fuss was about.

Oh, and it's nicely composed, too!

great spot and capture but I'd opt for a little less light and more contrast

I see what you mean, Senn. I was trying to maintain a full range of tones without blocking in the shadows.
Best wishes,

My first outing with this lovely lens, Mac, which appears to work so well on the K10. It's beautifully made too.
Best wishes,

Andrew

First time I can recall seeing a B&W shot from Stourhead - makes a nice change Andrew and it avoids the somewhat clichéd presentation normally seen from this viewpoint.

Since I discovered how many of my ancestors originated from Wiltshire I have developed an affection for the county. This shot portrays the county's landscape beautifully!
