Time to start this!
We continue this here!

---------------------

Hello Dyxum!

Time for next challenge!
This time its dCap over at n**on cafe who have invited us to play!

---------------------

week50mm
week 50 & 50 mm - it just has to be done!
calendar week 50 is Mon 10-Dec through to Sun 16-Dec
50mm is your very own 50mm prime lens

The Rules (note that there are only two rules!)
- YOU MUST SHOOT EVERYDAY WITH YOUR 50mm LENS FROM MONDAY 10-DEC TO SUNDAY 16-DEC
- YOU MUST CREATE JUST ONE FORUM WORTHY IMAGE EACH DAY TO BE POSTED IN THE DAILY THREAD

ShooterLevel:
LU - Level U: the PURIST ... will shoot with their 50mm lens ONLY for that 7 day period and no other lens
LY - Level Y: the PLAYER ... will need to shoot other lenses but will also be shooting everyday with their 50mm

Optional Bolt-on
You are free to create your own optional bolt-on, for an example:
-No crop
-B&W
-No PP

Threads:
There will be just 8 forum threads! This one, for you all to sign-up to the idea and bounce some chitchat about. And then there will be ONE thread per day:
week50mm | day 1/7 | Mon 10-Dec-07
week50mm | day 2/7 | Tue 11-Dec-07
... etc.
week50mm | day 7/7 | Sun 16-Dec-07

The What/Why:
- Its a week long pic-a-day for those that cannot dedicate the time to a month or year long version, here you get to try it out
- The ONE image ONLY per person per day will also get people fine tuning their editing/selecting process
- Its a club thing, there will be lots of us shooting the same focal length this time.
- It might even be a handy point of reference for the 50/1.4 or 50/1.8 and 50/2.8 macro buying decision
- Being 7 image threads only, it wil be a lot easier to follow the progress without taking over the forum!

Yes I'll do it with my 50 1.7. LU
I think I'll go B&W too.
Only problem is that this is the lens I was going to do January one prime with too.

Sounds like a worthy challenge, to bad I can't join. It would have been fun but week 50 is an insanely busy week for me at work so I won't have time for almost any shooting at all that week. Good luck and show those nik*n nerds how to use real photoequipment

I'm in going LU. I don't have any other 50mm except the Sony 50/1.4. It's not as good as the KM or ST but I'll try my best.

A100 + 50/1.4 = LU

I'm in... Tempting though it may be to do the challenge with the 50mm Industar, I think I'll take the coward's way out and go for the 50/f1.7 - but I will only use that one lens :-)
