May I join? Just took delivery of this beautiful lens. Edit: It's the C/Y wide open on a 5D2.

My wife's grandparents had not yet had the pleasure to take the ride across the Íresunds-bridge yet so I took them for a little ride. Alcohol is cheaper in Denmark than in Sweden and thus we had a little stop at Bottle Shop which is a place for cheap alcohol only 93 second of the bridge :-).

It felt like we were about to do a drug deal in the less friendly part of London so I had Granpa in law to pose for me with his newly aquired jungle licuor :-)

But first we had to drive through a tunnel.

Wow, look at the moire on his suit sleeve. Due to jpg compression, or is it just a really cool suit?

Anden, Both pictures are great. Your Granpa looks like a character.

Andreas,
Great portrait of grandpa!
Too funny!
What's next?Maybe a portrait of grandpa chugging a bottle of Smirnoff Ice on one knee like he just got "Iced"!
Not sure if that phenomenon has reached Sweden.

Thanks guys!
The moire is due to the compression.
He sure is a character. He is actually my wifes grandpa.

Wayne, when I lived in London a couple of years ago Smirnoff Ice was really big. I have not had it since.

Since the Smirnoff lawyers forced the shutdown of the website blog which describes the "Bros. Icing Bros" phenomenon, I will have to explain. You can see videos on Youtube.
So anytime your buddy presents you with a bottle of Smirnoff ice saying "You have been Iced", if you don't have a bottle on you, then you have to get down on one knee and chug the bottle. The joke here is that it is a terrible tasting drink, so it is like you are punking your buddy. People are doing all over the place in airports, golf courses, sneak attacks.

Another great portrait Anden!

Here's one that really show's what this lens can do in low light with a 5DII. It was the day after my daughters second birthday - and she just had to have some more candles and cake

Paul, very nice shot of you daughter, the birthday girl.

tehRebel, I like the 3-d ness of the 2nd shot as the girl blowing bubbles stands out from the foreground boy and the background ladies.

Ok, I hope to post some shots soon but haven't had time to process any shots.

But, I would like to ask the experts here which C/Y to EOS adapter are you using for this 35/1.4 lens?
I need to do some more testing but it doesn't seem like I am not getting proper infinity focus with the adapter which came with the copy of the lens I bought. I think the adapter is maybe too thick.

Thanks Wayne. I have a Kindai adapter on my Rollei version, which works perfectly at infinity on my Kodak SLR/c. I can't get true infinity focus on my 5DII though because it hits the mirror. I've adjusted the lens (as mentioned in previous posts here) so it doesn't hit at infinity, but the farthest focus in now ~40ft. Maybe your lens has been "adjusted" as well?
