When I tested it after putting Humpty together again, I was reminded how good it is, I can't wait to use it and the rest of the set on a FF EVIL.

This is an underrated lens that often goes on the camera when I'm going out. Works great for portraits.




The lens is the Rokkor-X 50mm f/1.7. Very inexpensive but a great alternative to larger and more expensive lenses.

The color balance looks quite off. It was weird to begin with (because of all the different kinds of light sources in the bar) and in the web browser it's a lot worse.

What colour space are you using? I always make sure to output to sRGB for web. Some browsers support alternative colour space these days, but probably still best to stick with sRGB since it is supported by everyone's browser.

On another note; do they teach American in Swedish schools, or English?

cogitech, I now realize it's Adobe RGB. I usually use it for printing, so that's where I went wrong I suppose.

Off topic:
When I went to school, focus was primarily on British English, but I believe they now teach a little bit of both. My own English is at this point some pidgin blend of mix of Australian, US and British English (after having spent years working with people from all over the world, most of which do not speak English as their primary language).

I can confirm your experience with this lens.It takes the second place after MC Rokkor PG50/1.4 in my personal ranking.This refers to both 55mm Rokkor X (MD) and 49mm series.

A boy and his dog, all with the 58/1.2, I didn't keep track, but they're all likely between f/2 and f/4.

Excellent series of images Brad!
Really like the interaction and comp of the 3rd shot.
Makes me really miss my dog.
I liked the SciFi movie with this title.
