Another one from Ashland today with my wide angle, manual, prime lens.

This one is a bit out of focus as I set the focus for just under infinity when I should have just turned it to infinity. With my AF lenses, just under infinity seems to work best for manual focusing, but with this lens, going to infinity for anything more than about 8-10 feet away yields best results.

Major League Baseball begins regular season play in just over a week. Today’s photo is the view between games of a softball doubleheader last weekend in Ashland. The Lady Raiders won both games.

Normally I’d need to take three or four photos and photomerge them together for a shot like this. However, I used my new (to me, it’s a used lens actually) Nikon 20mm f/2.8 prime lens and was able to capture foul pole to foul pole in a single image. I love this lens for its optics, size, and weight, but I only purchased it because it was part of a package deal with a 50mm f/1.2 lens. I also have a 24mm f/2.8 (and a 14-24mm f/2.8) so I don’t really need both (or all three). Therefore, if you are interested in the 20mm f/2.8 manual focus lens, make me an offer I can’t refuse, and it will be yours. Oh yeah, and if you shoot with a Canon, it also came with a Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter which allows you to use this, or any, Nikon lens on a Canon DSLR. I’ll toss this in at no extra charge.
