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?

I use a no name for my Rollei. I get infinity and no hang.
For the CY I use a 2 year old HappypageHK. I get infinity.
The Gifts Hunter adapter I got was slightly too thin so the mod I did to the CY is not enough with this adapter. It hangs the mirror on my 5DII.

Thanks Paul and Andreas for the adapter info.
I just ordered a new C/Y-EOS chipped adapter from HappyPageHK.
Hopefully I will get infinity focus with no play in the adapter-camera-lens connection.

I think I got the same adapter and asked before I bought it to ensure that it would be thin enough for infinity focus. When I first received it, I didn't even get close to infinity focus, more like 30-50 ft. But, I adjusted the screws on the barrel under the rubber grip and managed to get infinity focus ever so close to mirror hang on my 5D. But, I have infinity focus and no mirror hang.

I have a question for Anden...can you please share your PP work on your portraits? Do you use any special sharpening methods? I just love the natural look of all of your photos!

I shoot raw. Adjust a little when converting to JPG. No special magic sorry.

Andreas has a great eye for framing and subject positioning. The 35/1.4 takes care of the rest...

Few from this evening...


Wide open @ 1.4 with the 35. Love the way it renders OOF areas.



More of just a test frame to see how the lens does approaching infinity focus. Stopped down to 5.6. Going to have to mod the rear element guard eventually so that my copy will focus to infinity on my 5D. I may try to find a 5Dii that it goes to infinity on first and buy that instead. Talk about convoluted thinking... buying another body to aviod harming a lens you adore...

Andreas, I have a question for you. What exactly did you do to your C/Y to get it to not hang at infinity? Did you just mod the rear element guard tab, as I think that is where is it is hitting? I don't want to grind that tab down, but I am thinking about it if it will help the lens to work at infinity. Thanks.
