Yesterday I did some paid photography work for the first time in a while.
It was exhausting, mostly because the location is a single large room containing children and lots and lots of videogames. Thus, a bombardment to the ears for 6 hours. πŸ™‰

It was good though, but I'd certainly appreciate a faster focusing 50mm lens πŸ™„ More in thread on that.

In the evening we went to the Hackspace's Hackoween event. That was super chill. Good chats and company 😊

@s So, yesterday I was using my Nikon 50mm F1.8D - a nice prime lens which doesn't have an AutoFocus motor.
Its fine, because my D7100 SLR has an AutoFocus motor in the body.

But shooting in a fairly dark venue yesterday and the focus was doing a lot of hunting, and often failing to get a good focus on poorly lit subjects.

My much more modern 35mm lens was totally fine, as was my 85mm, and those have AutoFocus though.

I might finally try and get a 50mm f1.8G and retire the old one. πŸ“·

@s The 50mm F1.8D suffers from some chromatic aberration sometimes too. It IS a super nice lens, but it's not as good as the new Nikkor primes like my 35mm.
