Thank you sebboh. Very helpful info, much appreciated!
I have MC Rokkor-PG 58/1.2 arriving soon (got it for a future, mirrorless use) but it looks like I may have to find another way to use it sooner. Perhaps on my old Canon EOS SLR.


glad to help, i suspect the old eos slr may have mirror issues just like your nikon near infinity btw.

Not by Rokkor, but of Rokkor, for now.
First impression; I really like its lens cap...

looks like it's in excellent shape. don't care much for the lens caps myself (i have a bag of them somewhere...), but they look pretty.

here's my own contribution to the birding at at f/2 with the 58/1.2 theme:

^^ Were you wear some green cloth with leaves hide there

Another at f1.2 or f2, I can't remember now. but I am at 1/4000 and ISO100 in cloudy day. I am impressed with its cross frame performance!

Michael, I feel lucky finding this pristine copy. Based on posted images I feel the lens is a keeper definitely worth extra pennies for its good shape.

sebboh; after using Zeiss infamous lens caps Minolta's snap-on tight cap is a revelation to me.
BTW, how does Rokkor 58/1.2 behaves without hood in bright(er) scenes?

My experience is that the 58 Rokkors contrast improves a lot with a hood, I use an ugly collapsible rubber hold

the waxwing saw me put down my telephoto so he came over to mock me.

i've heard so many complaints about those zeiss caps, but i don't think i've ever actually used one. i tend to be very concerned about protecting my glass when i'm not using the camera/lens and completely unconcerned when the camera is in my hand so i use generic metal screw caps for all my lenses.

regarding the rokkor it's got a big hunk of glass up front and using it without a hood in bright light can definitely increase the veiling flare, but not enough that i find it worth while to carry a hood. it does surprisingly well at minimizing the other weird flare artifacts common when the sun is near or included in the frame for a lens it's speed and age. with my thoriated version of the lens i had issues with a red hot spot appearing when the sun was just out of the frame, but for some reason i've never seen that with the non-thoriated version i use now.

Thank you. Kind of make sense considering size and exposure of its front element glass. Other fast(er) lenses I used like Nikkor 50/1.2 or Nippon Kogaku 50/1.4 hugely benefited (reduced flare, ghosting and improved contrast) from fairly large lens hoods.

Thanks. I may get few metals hoods just to try, perhaps starting with 1/2" long vented hood (it works well on my Nikkor 50/1.2) They're fairly cheap from Far East and decently made.

Anyhow, I should be using f/1.2 speed only in available light conditions and skip hoods unless for protection. I noticed that even early in the evening shooting WO in A-priority mode sets shutter speed around 1/6000s @ISO100.

Thanks for your info and images. Learned a lot from you.

lovely shots!

i've been seeing a lot of great images from this lens lately, maybe i should try my copy out. it's one of those lenses that just sits on my shelf, but i never take with me because of the size and speed.

I'm getting intrigued with that 35-70 lens, ebookman. Your shots look nice, sharp and vivid.

Jako, I bought a couple of lens hoods off ebay that I screwed together as one hood for my Rokkor. They're metal. I used that for a while until I luckily found a d57kb hood. The ebay ones (screwed together) were shorter, but still did the job.

Rokkor 58/1.2 on 5D. I used too little dof here, but I'm really loving the grainy BW look now
