Manual focussing

The Vivitar 70-150mm f3.8 manual focussing zoom turns out to be a very sharp lens, espacially when stopped down to f5.6 and above.
This object sits in my kitchen, in the window. I like the colors, the DOF and the sharpness.
What more can i wish for, the lens changed owners for 25 euro's.
Ok one wish, A D300 or above because my D90 doesn't meter the light and makes me do testshots, but in time my guess for shuttertimes will improve(i hope).
Shot Info: iso 200 - f8 - 1/100 - between 70-150mm (really can't remember).

Next to this i started using border for my shots, at first i didn't like a border much, but after some experimenting, it's nice!
i use Bordermaker 4.1, free and handy.

Manual Focus again.

Today i received my second Manual Focus lens.
It is a Vivitar 70-150mm 1:3.8 macro focussing zoom.
Well macro, focus minimal distance is 90 cm, so not real macro.
Got this through marktplaats, just like the Panagor.
Looks good, didnt test it yet.
Results will follow.

Yesterday i went to ''Radio Kootwijk''.
It was a sunny day and i took the D90 with me to work. After work i drove to Kootwijk on a icy road.
The picture above is the last one i shot before i went back home, stone cold....
Edited a bit in Capture NX2, only contrast and brightness and i cropped it a bit.
Shot info: iso 200 - f22 - 1/100 - 50mm
