IMHO, this is just about the worst photograph I have ever taken, or seen. I have been working with my Nikon Series E 50mm Ai Lens lately and wanted to see what the old girl had left. Surprisingly it is still quite sharp at F/1.8, however even wide open the bokeh or lack of bokeh is horrible. I took this in our front yard, early evening on a bright, sunny day. I am not certain that going to a slower shutter speed and closing the lens by 1/2 to a full stop would have accomplished anything. Now the ISO is set between 200 to 800 automatically. Ooops, now there is a thought. Maybe the auto Iso does not function when the camera is on Manual. My other train of thought is perhaps I should not be using this SLR film lens on a digital camera. Just because they are compatible, does not mean they are suitable. It is possible that it just is not a good marriage.
Please feel free to offer any comments/suggestions/solutions.
