Fuji Film X-Pro1 with a Takamar 50mm f1.4.(approx 40 years old)
I’ve only made incremental jumps on camera model releases. When I purchased the X-T1, which made the X-Pro1 my back up camera, and then finally onto the X-T3 which I am currently shooting. This has turned the X-Pro1 into a dust collector. There is nothing wrong with the camera mind you, it’s just an unfortunate victim of generational atrophy. Quite frankly, that bothered me a bit. A perfectly good camera going to waste. Until now.
Enter Vintage lens. This image was taken with a 40 year old(approximately) Takamar lens. The image quality is stunning. To learn more about my vintage obsession, check out my blog post. https://garthvg.com/vintage-lenses-whats-old-is-new-again/
