Without blowing my own trumpet I thought I would post this picture to show that you do not need to spend £5000 on gear to get some good pictures. This was taken at a wedding that I covered, on a Pentax LX with a 50mm f1.4 and some fuji pro 400H. I think the total outlay for it used from jessops was less than £200. I used it extensively for about two years, sold it for more than I paid for it and bought myself a Leica R6. Now that is another whole story! Is it better than the LX? questionable but I have to say that the glass is incredible. The following shot was taken on that with the 50mmm summicron.
