It's a 15mm Super Wide Heliar, the same lens you're looking at right? It's pretty nice. I'm enjoying using it. Finding good applications for it is tricky being so wide, I'm forcing myself to shoot a whole film with it to test it out. It's just about having it on you in those certain situations I suppose. I'm ten frames along. Off to the supermarket in a sec to shoot some candids from the hip. I deliberated over whether to buy the 15mm or 21mm, but I think I'll buy the 21mm in a month or so to go with it, after getting the Heiland Splitgrade Controller I want. I'll have 15mm, 21mm, 35mm, 50mm and 90mm then. Won't need any more after that, apart from another camera body perhaps.

Yep, that's the one. I decided that the 25mm was a better deal and probably more useful, but I may have to get both! I really like the 25 "snapshot" btw, the viewfinder is quite nice. Still getting used to the uncoupled focusing though.

In case you guys care about Canadian law, here's the twist you have to remember: you can take any bloody picture you may well like, any time, of anyone.
BUT! you are not allowed in the slightest to make commercial use of the picture IF the person is recognizable. In this case, it's no print sales, no licensing the picture, etc without model release, or an explicit agreement.
So start taking backs and feet shots when you travel to Canada. There's nothing like a candid picture of a set of toes to improve your artistic career.
Using film since before it was hip.

Now, if the busker in question had been a mime - well, what could he say?
I always at first shoot and ask after shooting. If no permision his problem if he see it as a problem. But always at fist shoot. No point in shooting after asking. Just if I want possing I ask before...
A friend had an ugly experience 2 years ago here in my area at something called " The Woodward Dream Cruise".. a bunch of people with hot cars that gather to drive up and down and back and forth while admiring each other's vehicles... a Detroit thing. Anyway, it is a very public event with many people with cameras, etc. My friend was doing some street shooting and was suddenly accosted by 3 men claiming he had taken a picture of one of their girlfriends. He was assaulted... punched, chased and no one did a thing to help him until the police came to break things up. The police sided with the assaulting parties, confiscated my friend's film and took him in. He was eventually let go, but they kept his film to process to see that he wasn't shooting "upskirt" pictures. He contacted them in a few days and they gave him his processed film which was poorly developed, scratched and cut un the middle of frames. It did however show that he was innocent of what he was being accused.
He'd probably lasso you with an invisible rope and imprison you in an invisible box.
