Out of all the lenses John let me try, I think I enjoyed using the FD 50mm Macro lens the most. I felt like it gave me a whole new perspective on my everyday surroundings. Of course I may have noticed rain drops on a tree branch before, but not in total isolation like that.
That said however, I’m sure you’ve noticed that I care a lot about interesting photos and subject matter. While I do find a lot of the macro capabilities fun, I still find portraits like the one of John above and street scenes more interesting than water droplets.
Do you agree?
