Shooting digital with a vintage Canon 35mm f2.8 lens

Today I swiped the dust out from my mirrorless camera and took it for a spin. I mounted a vintage Canon FD 35mm f2.8 lens to it with an adapter. I try to avoid being a “film vs. digital” guy, but sometimes modern technology just bugs me and I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with my digital camera. Especially auto focusing (on Canon EOS M3) sometimes drives me crazy. I definitely prefer manual focusing.

Using digital camera with a vintage lens, kinda makes it feel and look more like film. The focusing rings are usually so smooth and intuitive to use. And I could swear the images have a pretty believable vintage look. I shot these straight on monochrome settings and the results are very film-like and pleasing.
