What is street photography? One said is the capturing of beauty of things around us that goes un-noticed. My love affair with the Manual Focus lenses starts with my first camera ever purchased, the NEX 7, 8 months back and joining the Clubsnap community. The purchase of the NEX 7 is due to an influence of a very dear friend of mine, highly recommended then for a small compact system but producing great IQ output. As for the switch into MF lenses, it's from another dear friend of mine who has been playing MF lenses on his NEX 5n for quite sometime and my first MF lens is from him, a very good value for money purchase. The Carl Zeiss Planar Contax CY 50mm f/1.7 lens.

Enough of mambo jambo... Sharing some of the shots earlier this year from my NEX 7 and my first MF lens... Tks.
