The score of the day? M42-mount Tonika f5.5 300 mm lens for.... $10!! I was looking at one of these on eBay a few months ago for an order of magnitude more money.
So why am I excited about this?
Here is the view from my living room with the lens that I usually shoot with when I am doing photo-booth in the club (12-60mm zoom, at 12mm - which is where it is usually at in the small space of the photo-areas), note the corner on the far side of the cross-street where, if you look hard just above and to the right of the yellow car, you can see a couple dark-blue dots that are two people standing on the corner in front of the Starbucks:
And here are those same two dark-blue dots with my "new" lens:
Now say "candid street photography."
And, again, $10!!
Ten measly dollars!
