It's some kind of blessing and good luck string. it often goes from the golden Buddha statue and holy water trough the hands of all the monks. You can see it everywhere in Thailand. And if you go into a temple and the monks bless you. They will take a piece of that white string and attach around your wrist. And you will keep it until it fall off. It's for good luck.

incredible images Lars!

For older fast 50ish mm lenses, Walter E. Schön's Colorfoto article offers some comparisons. The lower the number the better the quality,

that's cool, i envision this as more of a comparison thread than just an alt show off thread. it's nice to see what all of the different ultraspeed lenses can do no matter the brand.

Hot fluid gold.

OK, it is only cold water on a table of a street café, at night illumination.
Thank you!

This is silly unless we limit it to FF equivalent 1.2 and faster. 1.4 on MFT is like 2.8 on FF. Not that special.

I mean, sure you get some of the unique wide aperture look (unsharp falloff, SA, color bokeh, spherochromaticism), but not even the funky corners, which IMO are most of the fun of WA lenses.

^Unless you use half-frame lenses on APS-C, like sebboh with his pen-f 42/1.2.

no.

it's about lenses and their looks and performance wide open. if you think shooting a 50/1.2 on 4/3 looks the same as shooting a 100/2.4 on FF your deluding yourself. a 50/1.2 on 4/3 looks like you took a 4/3 sized crop of the same 50/1.2 on FF. who said anything about WA lenses? the only wide angle eligible for this thread is the cv 35/1.2. yes some of the character of these lenses is lost on crop, but a lot of it remains. more importantly, a lot of people these days are deciding they don't need FF. this means when they look for a super speed lens they're interested in how it performs on the camera they shoot, not the camera it was intended for. finally, seeing how a lens performs on crop does tell you about it's performance on FF, just the central portion.

here is the rokkor 58/1.2 on FF (film):





and here it is on aps-c (digital):
