Nikon 24mm f/2.8 AI-S

When I purchased my Nikon FM2 film SLR, my plan was to shoot it exclusively with a 50mm lens and primarily with black and white film. For the last six months, that's exactly what I did. However, over the course of time, I fell in love with the simplicity of a manual focus camera and began to shoot film the vast majority of the time. I finally decided it was time to purchase another lens.

I ordered my "new" Nikon 24mm f/2.8 AI-S manual focus lens from and received it two weeks ago. Unfortunately, I was in Las Vegas on business the week it arrived, but I was able to spend some time shooting it this week. I'm pretty excited about the 24mm lens. This focal length will allow me to shoot some landscapes on film. My goal is to get some practice this autumn, so I will be ready to shoot some beautiful, winter scenes in the upcoming months.

I only have a few shots under my belt with this lens, but so far so good. It's a wonderful lens and I look forward to running a lot more frames through it.
