It’s got a good reputation for a little known brand. I found a deal on the Kamlan 50mm f/1.1 lens a while ago and decided I wanted to try the 28mm lens when I found a deal on one. Beautiful lily. 😀 😀 Thanks Cee. There’s quite a variety of daylilies growing around the neighborhood this summer. New lenses are just so fun 😀 I’ve got a 30mm I’m enjoying my “back to basics” kit of three manual focus prime lenses so much I will often grab the bag with them in rather than the bag with the weather sealed fast zooms. I’d use my 30 prime more, but I’m not mobile enough to use it outside. So I rely on my other lenses more. 😀 The reason I put together a lightweight kit of three manual focus prime lenses was an accident left me with restricted movement in the right shoulder and a weaker right arm. Now the arm is stronger I can carry the bag of weather sealed fast zooms but I’m enjoying shooting the way I shot film as a photography student in the 1970s.
