Dear DD:
I have found that old lenses demand more from me.
I must compose right, get to the right distance not just zoom in or out, for example. Think again in apperture an/or speed terms, at times neverminding the exposure. Using or avoiding flare, and so on.
Are they better?. Yes, IMHO anyway, because they force me to come out from lazyness and casual snapshooting. Amazingly, the trash can ends up emptier when I take out my FE2 and my old AIS lenses. Somehow I get more into an experimentation mood with my old gear than with my new one and it is refreshing.
Edward Steichen's words still bother me a lot:
"No photographer is as good as the simplest camera."
I hope I am not babbling off-track your intended subject.
Have a great time
JRP
