A quick detour to the local city lake where a fishing tournament was being held. I did not have the chance to spend as much time as I needed and just managed these few shots of part of the substantial crowd well dispersed on the bank of the lake. Participants have already cast their lines and are now waiting for the bites.

The MD 50mm 1:1.7, as tested, is the last in a long line of standard kit primes produced by Minolta for SR mount bodies. It is a pleasant lightweight, and on the unit I used focus is still smooth, and handling on the E-P5 is just about right, if not excellent. The lens has a 49mm filter thread, easy to come by on the auction sites, and is relatively inexpensive.
