    Not only that, but some of the Canon EOS film cameras have the eye control focus. Mine works very well. But I find I like the look of my M42 Russian glass better.

    Actually, some of the latest generation of "mirrorless" d!git@l cameras have interchangeable lenses with very short registration distances. That makes it fairly trivial to make adapters for older manual lenses and I see lots of talk about people doing that. No doubt some will adapt because they already have lenses in hand. I don't have any idea whether the number of people using those cameras deciding to run out to acquire such lenses would represent a visible bump in demand. I think a lot of those cameras are acquired to use as high end P&S.

    (Time will tell!)

    Sage advice. I love this forum.

    Perhaps I should buy one and head out to a beach on a warm day to see which photos are in focus?

    Where the link mentions a 35mm lens, what is the format size of the DSLR it is being used on? Without knowing this I can't follow what he is trying to say.

    One of the first things I thought of. It's a Nikon D3s with a 24x36 sensor.
    Just think, that lens has been waiting 31 years for him to discover it. Damn nice lens, too.

    If that's the case what does this statement in the link mean?

    "In terms of composition, the 35mm lens is the closest to the focal composition of the human eye."

    It means he's a kid enthusing over a new toy, and wouldn't do very well at all with a camera that required thought and knowledge to use.

    I wonder what lens the author normally uses if he thinks the 35/1.4 is "Small, Light and Compact".

    It is, compared to the ubiquitous kit zoom.
