New group "Prime lenses (fixed focal length)"
Since joining ipernity, I've been searching unsuccessfully for a group on prime lenses. At this stage, I believe it likely that there hasn't been one until now.

There are quite a few who share with me the problem of LBA ("lens buyer's addiction" for those not familiar with the term) and are driven to buy old lenses from time to time when they appear for sale. Equally, I know quite a few of my online friends also have new modern primes. So why not have a group for photographs taken with prime lenses? A place where maybe even some discussion might develop along the way.

After some online chat with member Dynamo today, we've started such a group and we're both delighted to invite you to join. That's the title in the header: and could we ask you to share this with any of your friends who have the same interest?

The rules? Be nice to each other, keep it "family friendly", max two shots per day, and please include somewhere the information on the lens used.

Hope to see you there.

Hi George! I just read your comment on my article. I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling and thinking that way. :)

I like your new group. Last year when I started to get an interest in Street Photography I bought a few vintage lenses, a Meyer Lydith 30mm f/3.5 and an EBC Fujinon-T 135/3.5. The 30mm is not terribly good, but I love that focal length and so use it quite a bit when I want to shoot the street.
But my bird lenses are also all prime. You could say I'm a prime person! :) I will definitely post some of my pictures in this group!

Nice to meet you too.

Thank you, David. With old cars, there is a saying that "the one with the most old cars when he dies, wins....". I suspect the same applies with lenses. LOL
