I always wanted to have such a friend but they (ravens) are scarce and skittish in my country.

Gotta love your captures & PP, sebboh!

BTW, does anyone have Rokkor 58/1.2 lens profile for Adobe ARC?



I just got the fantastic MC Rokkor-PG 58mm f/1.2 with EF mount from the buy & sell forums on here. It's wonderful! I decided to make a custom lens profile using the Adobe Lens Profile Creator. It's available for LR and PS on the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader once Adobe approves it. I made the profile with my 5D mark III for both RAW and JPG formats. If you can't find it just PM me and I can send you the .lcp files directly.

The profile includes both the Geometric Distortion and Vignetting correction.

My lens has the AF confirm chip with EXIF identification of the lens so LR automatically detects the proper lens correction profile now. The chip only registers the maximum aperture value so unless you change the EXIF information for images shot at anything stopped down from f/1.2, it will overcorrect for the amount of vignetting. I used the LensTagger Exif Tool plugin for Lightroom (in conjunction with the ExifTool command line application) to change the recorded aperture on the images I know were stopped down so the appropriate amount of vignetting is corrected.

I know many people like the look of the distortion and vignetting but it's nice to have the option to correct if if you want. I'm sure the lens profile is transferrable to any other full frame camera. If someone wants to send me a Fuji X-Pro 1 I can profile that camera/lens combination too






Behold the Rokkor-PG 58mm f/1.2 with EF mount







It's been years since I've had to actually use two hands to work with a lens. One on the camera, the other on the focus and aperture rings.

That Rokkor 58 f/1.2 is surely a classic I need to hunt down at some point.

I thought I'd bring this thread back up, so here's a shot from today with the Sony A7 and MD 75-150 f/4, either wide open or @5.6. I also forgot to check the zoom setting, but I'm quite sure I was closer to the tele end, maybe 120mm (I should start taking movie notes with manual glass).

This was shot as JPEG and slightly processed, but the lens is definitely sharp and contrasty even wide open.

It's not really a spectacular photo but it was my first outing with the kids and the Rokkor-PG 58mm f/1.2. I'm not quite used to manual focus and it forces me to slow down. I love the bokeh on this thing though. It has a unique "flavor" to it that reminds me of the 85L. Love it!

Oh?
Did I miss this?
I would like to try this.
Is this downloaded from the Adobe lens app?

I like the orchid shot a lot. Lovely light and very pleasing colours. The good CA correction shows up in this shot I would think. What are you thinking about the sharpness of this lens? Does stopping down help much since it is f/5.6 wide open? I have only shot mine wide open, because I didn't connect the aperture ring when I converted it EOS mount. I hadn't thought it was worth it since I doubted I would want to stop down an f/5.6 lens very often, but if it improves I might take the time to do it.

i'm a big fan of the color correction. i'm a bit underwhelmed by the sharpness and the bokeh.

since i work handheld i would mostly use the lens at f/5.6 as well, unfortunately f/16 seems to be the lenses sharpest aperture (even in the center on a crop camera).

for comparison, here is the same shot (same distance and subject) taken with my leica 350/4.8 wide open:

MD 24-35mm f/3.5 on NEX 5N, strictly speaking not a Rokkor

Wide open at 24mm

Thanks Gregg.
I have RRS pano rail kit on order, which I plan to use mainly with Rokkor 58/1.2 and Zeiss 100/2 lenses for multi-stitching. Rokkor 58/1.2 stopped down is an amazing lens!
