MD 135mm f2 .. sold for EUR 640 ....

http://www.ebay.com/itm/121021649562?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

It was one of my dream lens a year ago, but somehow along the way I loose interest in 135mm lens, so I pass the bidding ..

Anybody in FM has it?

None of the pictures was taken with 135mm F2 as far as I remember.

I haven't had as much opportunity to test it out as I'd like, but it's probably not too early to say I am a happy inductee into the cult of the 58/1.2, thanks to Derek's beautiful conversion to Alpha. I liked the lens well enough on the NEX-7, but the 90mm equivalent limited the way I used it. On the a900, it's like a whole new lens, on that will sit very comfortably between the Lux-R 35 and 100/2.8 for night shooting this season. I really like the way it handles lights from wide open to f/2.8. This one was on a dog-walk in the neighborhood at f/2. I think it came out pretty well given the fact that I had my dog's retractible leash under my left arm with her tugging away at the end (she has very little patience for my holding up the works for these dubious efforts). Never again will I doubt the power of SteadyShot.

I haven't posted a Rokkor image here since page 52 when I said I was waiting for a NEX in order to use my old Rokkors normally. I now have a NEX-5N and am enjoying my old Rokkors like never before.

glad to hear it's working out, will you be using the R 60mm macro at smaller apertures?

Nope. The 60 gets used to take pics of things I'm selling and lighting examples for a couple of local theater directors. Outside of that, the 35-70/4 had taken it's place, which is an excellent lens at the long end, but I doubt it will get used as much now. I've got few complaints about what I've seen from the 58 stopped down. Losing close focus is a little bit of a concern, but I've got a 7mm ring I carry around to use with the 90 and 100, so I'll try the 58 on that and see how it goes. I'm really happy with it wide open. Much happier than I've been with any other f/1.2 I've used. I'm sure I'll find some niggling complaints about it the more I use it, but right now, I am one satisfied shooter.

Sort of off topic, but the R 60 macro Elmarit is my workhorse, also.

I think i would have liked it a little bit better without the foregorund framing, but stunning light.
What have you done to achieve infinity focus?

My canon-leitax-mount for the 58/1.2 should arrive in 4 or 5 days, really looking forward to that!

I have taken my Rokkor apart a couple of times now, adjusted for infinity and filed down the rear retainer ring of the rear element at the top. Bought a conversion kit from Jim here: http://www.jimbuchananspace.com/Camera_Services.html
and shoot in Live View for infinity shots.

Unfortunately this was the only access I had from the road, had to pull over and lean through the trees to get the shot, the wind was pushing the clouds quite quickly so just shot a few and picked the best

From my understanding the mirror will catch around the 5m setting, can i start live view at say 1m, focus to infinity, take a picture, focus to 1m, turn live view off without filing down the rear retainer ring?

Possibly, filing the retainer down was one of the first things I did, but it allows me to get past about 10m before it hangs now, so you might be in luck. Give it a try, the rear element is safe from the mirror as it doesn't protrude out and won't get struck

Thanks.

Most of them were taken at f/8.0 and all with Kenko tubes.
