also with the 58/1.2:

the first is a ~50% crop probably at f/2.8, all the rest are the full aps-c frame and wide open:

Hey guys.
I recently had my rokkor 58/1.2 converted by JB and I'm wondering what's the best method to blacken the part of the mount that faces the sensor?
I mean is it worth doing or should I just leave it as is? Not sure if flare would be a big issue with normal shooting.

Hi, i have the same mount made by JB and it causes no visible problems to image at all. My opinion is leave it as is.

More real-world photos - from recent wedding.

i doubt you'll see any noticeable improvement. the rear element mostly blocks any possibilities for reflections.

You guys are shaking me violently and reminding me how much I love my Rokkor that has been sitting on its shelf too long. Great work!!!

I particularly liked Sebboh's last set, Mann_p's bridge, Helimat's stroller shot, Paul's and Phillip's flowers and this last one from Sirfishalot.

Neat to see the quality of the 35-70 Phillip. I don't recall seeing shots from an old Minolta zoom before, and those are impressive contrast and still retain a lovely bokeh in spite of the aperture being comparatively slow and the lens being a zoom.

Cheers,
Jim

One more question.

What chip do I need to buy to use my rokkor 58mm f1.2 on a Canon dslr?
Is it the dandelion chip? Can I trust ebay or is there a more reputable seller to buy one from?
And does the chip come with a template and glue like the one on Leitax website?
Thanks.

don't know a thing about chipping canon adapters, doesn't seem worth the trouble.

58/1.2 at f/8 (probably):

Great scenic!

That's the old (or new) bath house, right?

Sebboh, any AC72 action shots?

dandelion or tagotech on ebay, both have placement templates.

sadly, i didn't get a chance to see any races other than from an extreme distance as i drove over hills or bridges.

that is the cliff house (restaurant). i don't believe it there are any baths that still exist there. the old sutro baths lie directly behind the cliff house (in the posted picture). there isn't much structure from them still standing. here's a pic i took of them a while ago with the rokkor 17/4 (i've probably posted this earlier in the thread):





they did recently redo some of the viewing areas/bathrooms/landscaping/etc in that park.

edit: that's a shot on film btw, tmax 400 to be specific.

i haven't spent much time with it, but i quite like what i've seen. very similar to the MC PG 50/1.4 in rendering.

i don't think it is as sharp wide open as the rokinon 85/1.4, nor as smooth in bokeh, but i like it's color better and it has mostly likable bokeh. i'm not ready to give a verdict yet for landscape use, but it is certainly competent in that regard.

Sebboh:

Thank you. Perhaps I should just settle with my OM 85/2 and Samyang 85/1.4 then..

if it were me i'd replace the olympus with a c/y 85/2.8. i never could get on with the olympus for portraits or for landscape, it is like a quarter the size/weight of the rokkor though. i'm still getting to know the rokkor, but it is definitely much prettier drawing than the olympus (imho of course).

I personally quite like 85/2 close up. Would love to try the legendary 90/2 though...

My MC Rokkor 85/1.7 comments are much the same as sebboh's.Similar to MC PG 50/1.4 in rendering style,not so sharp wo with visible CA,but very nice colour,sharpness and oof blurr overall.

With the NEX5N:












If you feel itching go for it.

I would recommend to try a humble but very good 100/2.5 MC/MD Rokkor as well.MC 6/5 is smilar to 85/1.7,whereas MC and MD 5/5 are just like MD Rokkor 50/1.4 55mm.

Tis is late MC with revised 5/5 optics and 1m mfd/NEX5N

when comparing my MD 100/2.5 with my MC 5/5 100/2.5 i couldn't find much of a difference and sold the MD one because of the MC's nicer handling.

here are some full resolution images taken with a Canon 5dII
