Ronny:

I can't imagine how you set up the second shot. With that lens, your dog has to be almost jumping right into you!

Also, what is that in his/ her mouth in the third shot, besides the ball?

Finally, either your copy of this lens is much sharper than mine, or you are a much better photographer. Or both.


Well on the picture 2, he was close to me when he jumped .. almost shot from below
and what he has in his mouth is a piece of string attached to the ball ..
don't think my lenses are sharper Sometimes I think it is difficult to set focus on 2.8 at some pictures .. it is perhaps a little focus shift on this lens?
will probably take a while to get to know this lens
Philippe must give me an education


Thanks guys

Some shots from a Shanghai market. My 50mm f/1.2 AIS lens was mounted on my FM2 and loaded up with Kodak Ektar film.

This market is located in a rather rich part of town.

Fantastic picture Leighton - I don't think it matters what lens is in your hands you have a knack for this photography thing (in case no one has told you that yet)

Tom, I like your set from the market a lot. How are the people in Shanghai reacting when they see at camera pointed at them?
Two more technical notes and/or questions: Ektar seems to handle the mixed lightsources really well, have to try this one sometimes (still have a lot of Reala's). You're known as a Fuji-fan here , is Kodaks offering so much better than Reala? Shot #3 looks like a typical example of the 50/1.2's field-curvature - the display of the scale is in focus as is the closer white net-covered bucket. This strange behavior drives me crazy sometimes.

Thank you.

Reala is a sweet, sweet film, that I loved to death. I only shot it in 120 size and did not know it would disappear. Had I known that, I would have bought hundreds of rolls for storage. I am only just getting started with Ektar film so really cannot compare well. I never shot Reala in 135 size.

Regarding people here, most don't notice me due to my technique. I tend to find a spot that I like and then just hang around for 15 mins or more. Once people get used to me standing there, they stop looking at me and go about their business. While waiting I get a better feel for the scene and when a moment pops up, I fire off a single shot. The composition has already been done a hundred times in my head while waiting for the moment, I have my exposure set already, sometimes even pre focused. Working this way allows for some pretty quick shooting.

First of all, apologies for a very late reply. Im in the middle of moving to a new apartment and and were assembling furniture in the new place right now but do not yet have internet over there.

Buddy, your macros with the 55 3.5 + PK-13 + PN-11 were superb. The working distance must have been in millimeters. Will have to try that on my 55 3.5 macro.


There was literally no working distance. The filter thread of the lens rubbed against the sewing machine that contained these gears. Careful placement and rearrangement of the sewing machine was my only means of focusing.

It is absolutely worth a try though. DoF is 2-3 millimeters even at f8 which gives you a lot of creative possibilities with even the most mundane objects.

I really believe that some of our market customers would literally faint, if they saw one of our vendors doing this.

I love how this little superhero was standing at attention with his chest out, ready to defend us all. He was a cross between Batman, Superman and Spiderman (Spiderman flip-flops)!

that first shot has a real 3D look to it - don't know how you do this Ronny (and the bee shot) - guess you were on the ground too.

I wish, no seafood at all. We have a rule that states that ALL products MUST come from a 50 mile radius of the market.
