A couple more with the 10.5cm f4 T. All at f/5.6.

Grasshopper's lost itself amongst the colors.






Crop of the grasshopper. At f/5.6 the lens is plenty sharp.






And another set of flowers with this interesting lens.

Samy, another nice set with the 10.5cm f/4T! I was curious and took a look at this lens over at the photosynthesis-site. It's a really neat looking piece of glass ;-)

Scott, love the foggy (sorry, Jeff) Maine-coast. I like your framing and the subjects too.

Ray, your FA is a beauty for sure. The mounted lens is Ai'd by your buddy, I assume?

Chin, I like the real film-look and the framing on your boutique-image. It looks wider than a 35mm-shot, probably caused by the symmetry.

Ray from Ohio, I like the water-lillies. A beautiful B&W-subject.

James, amazing close-up with the reversed 28/2.8! Just got myself a BR-3, hope to play with an old ringflash on a reversed lens.

Rafael, nice office ;-) I'm glad the repair worked finally out so well. The red orchid is awesome!

Philip, love the bass-player and the laundromat.

Steve, Castlefields works great in B&W!

Matthew, the woods-shot is superb!

Ian, the "Death-proof"-portrait is fantastic. Thanks for sharing the technical details and how you've managed to sort out the problems (dim dashboard-lights). Btw, loved the Tarantino-movie, something completely different in every way compared to the usual "romantic comedies" or glossy action-flicks.

Ronny, great portrait of Nitro with the 180/2.8! I've shot very cool looking "giant schnauzer" today, but not with a Nikon ;-/

Ray (FL), did you come up with that compilation of film cameras and lens compatiblities? That's very nicely put together and very very useful! And that flower you had recently was super!

Chin, that lobby is so well captured.

Scott, superb images from your Maine trip. Hope to see more!

Ian, your latest work with the model is marvelous. Very much top class pro!

Ray, welcome back. That "nothing too special" panoramic landscape is very special. Love the mass of clouds above the distant trees at the bottom.

Jay, welcome and very striking fisheye portrait. And your "first attempt at image upload" was an outstanding introduction!

Rafael, glad to see your 15mm is back from its travails and functioning so well. I liked the fisheyed orchids too.

James, cool reverse lens shot. And loved the eggs reposted a couple pages back. Making me think of dinner right now.

Steve, liked the old canal with the ultramodern skyscraper in the background. Nice glimpses of Manchester in your photos!

Philip, nice to stop by again. I liked the bassist through the window the most.

Andy, very nice work with the 55 micro and the mantis.

Ronny, great portrait of your dog again!

Americo, good work with flower and the 28 2.8 AIS.

Peter (Knysna), loved the ready for winter shot from Chamonix. Reminds me, we don't see much of the Lieutenant nowadays. Is he spending all his time with the Leicas and Zeisses like Ben?

Georg, found your very boring shot with the 28 3.5 PC very interesting Interesting comment about the distortion. I think from what I tried last year with it, I got the feeling the distortion gets out of control if the camera plane is tilted to the ground. Did not look at this scientifically though, but enough that I am always self cautious about keeping the camera vertical.

Georg, thanks. In real life the lens is quite tiny, doesn't come across from the photosynthesis pic

Thanks, Samy! I still have to try the lens on something with a chessboard-pattern to check out what's going on in terms of distortion.
It seems that if I get the distortion at the borders under control the distortion in the middle parts of the image goes wild.
Anyway, I've paid a fair price for this lens (a bit more than a fifth of my 45/2.8 PC-E) and like it so far. It's for sure not flawless, but not many lenses are...

Some snaps from a Bonsai-exhibit here, all shot today with the 55/1.2 Ai wide open on a D700:


the window-frames were distorted quite a bit, removed most of it in ACR







I liked the presentation of these growing sculptures, but looking at my shots I think the framing is a bit too "centristic" on the images.

FINALLY I can post again. It's been ages and here's only a tiny fraction of the film I got back yesterday. I couldnt wait to process many more and am too busy right at the moment. But here's a small "taste" of what is to come.

Shot with my FM2 at a Suzhou market, w/85mm f/2 lens on Neopan 400 film.

I quite like these all. Sure a little "centristic" but the rest I like quite a bit. This is the only lens I really want.

I'm really drawn to this one, I keep going back and looking. A lovely mystery with the oof face in the background.

Thanks Buddy I liked the "sorta" as well
Georg, my friend did indeed ai'd that lens. Actually that one is a frankenstein of two lenses. Your bonsai photos are very cool. Just have to love those trees
Samy I found that chart on the net when i was originally looking to buy a film camera. Love the grasshopper shot. That lens is super sharpI
TOM!!!! welcome back. The 85mm 2.0 really is working for you. Great shots.
Off to work. Cya

Thanks Leighton. You did not miss much, but hopefully I'll be shooting much more in the next month.

Rattymouse - I remember those markets! Have you been to the pet market in Shanghai?

Thanks everyone for the kind words on the Mustang shots. Here's another with the 50mm f1.2 ai-s:

First post in this thread. Went on a hike up to the Griffith Park Observatory. Metadata is wrong because I forgot to switch it.

I think the centered composition works really well with this one because of the low round "pot" the tree is in and the moss effectively mimicking a small grass covered hill. The whole composition of this bonsai favors the photographic composition and the main reason why this one works so well (in my opinion) is because the focus is on the moss rather then on the complete bonsai tree.

Really well seen, well composed and compliments to the bonsai artist as well as the photographer. This is a nice example of two art forms meeting each other to capture and document a single state of this bonsai trees life where it is truly very nice.

Before printing and framing this picture I would only remove the pictures in the background in PP (but leave the OoF bonsai tree)

I love the intensity of the shot below!

Which pet market are you talking about? The insect market? Yep, been there and posted in this thread!

A few more from the recent film batch. All shots are on Neopan 400 film and shot either with my 24mm or 85mm AIS lenses. Both are the f/2 variants. I think you can pick which image goes with each lens. A bonus if you can find ME in one of these shots!

John, welcome to the thread! My favorites are the midde two, the cityscape and the tourist binoculars + city highlights.

Great to see so many new posters joining the thread!

Georg, my favorite of the set was the one with the out of focus woman. That certainly didn't seem centric to me, and the angle of the woman and the bonsai exhibit seem to pleasantly align.

Tom, welcome back, and great again to see glimpses of your city through film. I suppose the second one is eels?
