Hi folks,

First, I just want to say that this thread is amazing. I've been viewing it in recent weeks/months and the pics/discussion are just wonderful. I've yet to purchase my first MF lens, but it probably won't be too much longer.

I was wondering if you could tell me about the quality of the 50mm 1.4 ai-s? KEH currently has copies for < $200 and I figure I can't beat that price. I'm just wondering if the IQ of the lens is comparable to the more modern AF 1.4g and 1.8g lenses. Thanks so much.



Welcome to the club

I have a 50mm f1.8 AI-s, I think it is a sharp lens and the price cannot be beat....

Hmmm....this looks hard, and then, after she nailed it! And even Turd can play.

No noise reduction ( ;-) do not know how) and JPEG.

Hope these aren't too many in a row, just had too much fun with the 180.

The first one is a leaf that was suspended from a spiderweb. It was spinning so it was a patient wait to catch it turning into the sunbeam.

The next are more play with bokeh and fall color.

Great set of images, really showing off the capabilities of this desert island lens. Wonderful colors this time of year in your neck of the woods. Great warmth melded with buttery bokeh will win every time!

btw, Monty, can you explain in layman's terms what was happening and why? Is that part of a press?

Thanks Ray. No, this wasn't an HDR. It's a actually just a jpeg right out of the camera with a little adjustment in LR.


Ray, I just realized that that image was a RAW file and not a jpeg. Sorry I lied to you.

My memory isn't what it used to be either Leighton...

I think confusion rather than prevarication is evident here. New camera, changing software, hundreds of photos to test out lenses... All good.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. I'm afraid I wasted mine a LONG time ago!
