Nowadays, if you're looking for me, I can be found in a condominium in Makati's red-light district coding in the midst of cuteness. Go figure.

Minolta Prime Time

First of all, I would like to make it clear that I did not burn PhP80k for a lens, no matter how beautiful. Hear my story out. Secondly, I would like to declare that I have been lead to believe that a certain jug in our Hacker House contains orange juice when it was, in fact, orange juice with alcohol. I don't really drink so that might affect the lucidity of this post. But my first declaration stands completely. No amount of drunkenness will make me throw PhP80k for something that does not earn me back some money (yet). So, well, to stop beating around the bush, I got the SAL35G F1.4, a refurbished(? is that the right term?) Minolta prime,
Test, test, test!!!! Waw. Parang Facebook lang.

So yeah...just riding on DA's free Premium Membership Day. XD New Lens! I got my third lens (after the kit 1855 and the SAL55200), the SAL 1650. It's my first time handling a lens of this build and man is it gorgeous and awesome! As of this writing I've already posted some of my test shots with the said lens in my gallery. With this purchase, I'm now pretty comfortable with my lens set; I won't be specifically budgeting savings for lens purchases anytime soon. Maybe I'd get a prime lens or one of those with super wide focal length ranges (e.g., 18250, 16105) but they're just nice-to-haves. Especially the primes. I think prime lenses are go
