Not the most attractive thing sticking off an NEX, but a 135mm f/4 ELMAR....

Yep - it's not technically a "telephoto" lens, just a straight-up four (or five?) element 135mm design. So a bit long. Kinda phallic, too. Well, at least even more so than other lenses Very nice lens for the price though. I think it has some exotic glass - thoriated perhaps?

Meanwhile, here's my new LR 60/2.8

I should snap a photo of it mounted via the Metabones Speedbooster, it looks pretty slick.

Something a bit less pornographic...

SMC Pentax-A 28mm f2.0 with elcheapo ebay lens hood. I have to figure out if want to keep this or the smaller Contax G28 2.8 with that clunky adapter. Focus is sooooooo much nicer on the Pentax, though. Maybe sell both and try the Biogon 28mm ZM.

Or you could get sebboh to mod your G28 like this:

sadly i'm not able to offer such a service now. i haven't finished my conversion yet. the picture is just my cobbled together proof of concept conversion. the finished version will be much prettier and be m-mount so i can put it on a helicoid adapter.

the lathe at my present work is not well suited for the job so i wrote up the instructions for a friend who is a machinist. unfortunately, he hasn't gotten around to it and i'm in no position to rush him. i should probably just pay somebody to do it... i wanted to have a prototype first though.

No worries my friend, it's all good.

Look! The aperture dot's in the right place! I am so über-geeked about that lens' return, I feel like throwing it a party.

looks like i also left some sort of fuzz on the aperture ring for you too. i always forget to wipe the dust off lenses before i take their picture. my product shots always look super dirty.

btw, this lens taught me that not all focus tabs suck. i ordered one of that tab type to replace the obnoxious type i have on my cron.

That's cool, I didn't know you could replace the tabs. It doesn't suck, but I still get it confused with the Hawks tab.

You are showing the beautiful side of that gem of a beater. If I hadn't just slapped it on the camera and shot with it before looking through it, I would've probably passed, because I still can't believe it shoots as well as it does.

Lens, building, corner crop of building, obligatory dog shot.

How goes the conversion? It's looking like I'll be doing the same thing since what I was planing is not looking like it will happen.
Can you pass along your drawing for the milling? TIA

nothing new to report, pesky work and family have had me occupied lately. not even taking pictures much.

i'll have to see about scanning the plans (i just drew them on graph paper and handed them off, no CAD or anything).

I haven't been shooting much either, mostly because I'm working lots of hours, and that I don't like shooting in winter weather very much, the up side to working lots is that I can buy more lenses.

The drawing should come in handy for me and maybe a few others.
