p.297 #1 · p.297 #1 · What is your most recent (alt) lens purchase?


I compared my Leitaxed APO Telyt-R 180 f/3.4 with my newly acquired Sigma EX APO 70-200 f/2.8 yesterday, as soon as the Sigma arrived.

Both handheld, using f5.6, and I managed to nail the same 180mm FL. Both cams shot on Pentax K-1 and with a camera profile created using Color Checker Passport for each lens. processed in LR and the Leica shot uses the APO 180 f/2.8 lens profile, the Sigma its own.

I know that my Leica is better at long-range having been designed for the US Navy and I know that Leica colours are more muted. I am not disappointed in the Leica in the slightest, however I am impressed at the Sigma's colour and resolution.

I can output full-res versions to Google Drive if anyone wants them.

Zeiss Apo Sonnar ZF.2 135/2 - the same copy that was tested in the Photozone,sold by the tester himself.,so pictures are available here :http://www.photozone.de/nikon_ff/1021-zeisszf13520ff

X-Fujinons : 35/2.8 and 135/3.5 - X-Fujinons are probably the last brand of lenses with character that can be have very cheaply.Others are rapidly getting more and more expensive now.


Rokkors MD2: 35/2.8 (2nd copy),50/1.4 (4th copy),135/2.8 (2nd copy) plus Minolta XD5 body and Kenko converter - I couldn't resist that bundle.MD2 Rokkors are small,well built,sharp and have lovely colour rendition.

One of my trusty lens supplier has just visited me at home.Yearning for going out to take some photos I acquired a few lenses.All are in excellent to mint condition and 25-40% cheaper than their current,average market price.

Nikkor 28/2.0 AI - my first copy
Nikkor 35/2.0 AIS - my second
Nikkor 100/2.5 AI - my first AI,I got the AIS already

Minolta 100/4 Macro,mint,boxed,cased,with dedicated hood and 1:1 macro tube - for 100 Euro only
Minolta MD1 Rokkor 50/1.4 - my fourth copy (shy),but I love them so much
Minolta MC Rokkor PG 50/1.4 - my third - as above

SMC Pentax A 100/4 Macro - my first (I got only one M 100/4)
SMC Pentax M 35/2.8 - my third,but for 30 Euro,I couldn't refuse
SMC Pentax M 28/2.8 - my third,as above
SMC Pentax M 40/2.8 - my second - small is beautifull

And now,Ladies and gentleman......numer 400 in my hoard!!!:
SMC Pentax K 28/3.5 - my first copy-looks very promising

Yashica ML 50/1.7-my second-not far away from the 50/1.7 Planar,but different approch to interesting IQ

Is this alt, or merely 3rd party?



According to the Alt Forum definition, if it's not a current Canon, Nikon, or Sony Alpha DSLR body + lens, it's considered "alt".

Just like all of these...

I don't think so.He supplies lens first of all,which makes him a suplier.The real "enabler" is me.By paying I enable the act of acquisition.

Besides - is this of any significance?

No. At least, it pales in significance in comparison to, "what's next?".

Thanks Peire. Interesting.

I only took up photography as a hobby about a decade ago, shortly before my retirement.
My alt lenses are mostly Leica M and R. I have one Minolta MD.
I also got Leica Visoflex tele lenses for use on my M9, before I got interested in optically superior R lenses.
However I used the V lenses mostly adapted to my Nikon cameras, taking pictures of a gigantic local forest fire.

I didn't want to Leitax my R lenses, so couldn't use them on my Nikon cameras.
As I never had an R camera, my R lenses I first used adapted on Sony NEX-5N, NEX-7, and finally A7r.

Other than that I have native AF lenses for my Nikon, Olympus MFT, and Sony digital cameras.
The only exception is my Sony E-mount MF Mitakon 50/0.95 lens.

K-H.

What's the reasoning behind using the APO f/2.8 profile for the APO f/3.4 photo? The profile is supposed to adjust for a particular lens' distortion, aberrations, vignetting, color rendition etc., I have a hard time believing the f/2.8's properties are the same as the f/3.4's.

Simply because there is no other LR profile available. in the absence of one for the 180 f/3.4 I go with the closest profile. if you have any better ideas I would be grateful to have them
