p.50 #1 · p.50 #1 · What is your most recent (alt) lens purchase?


Just splurged for the holidays and bought a mint Zeiss 75/1.5 Biotar in m42 mount.
Been wanting to get this lens for a long time but the supply is limited and prices high.
Speaking of lenses with character, this and I think the Leica M 50 1.0 I think are top contenders.

Anybody have some 75 Biotar swirly bokeh shots to post here to get me ready for my copy?

Helios 44 13 blade, & Helios 40.

Sigh....
The 40 has damage waiting to hear from seller.
The 44's shipping label was damaged and returned to sender.

But I did receive my FD, LTM, & Konica NEX adapters, looks like I'll need an M-mount adapter...

I bought a Zuiko 50/1.2 to replace my Rokkor.
I simply feel I need a FF fast normal which works on an unshaved 5D.

It's one of lenses on my wish list. I've lost bid on eBay once. Still searching for more affordable one.
Please share the result (either on Olympus OM thread or a new thread) I want to know the rendering at f/1.2 (sharpness and bokeh, especially for busy background as tree, leaves, etc.)

Thanks, the 40/2 is tiny.
The 28 might need a trip for a professional cleaning as the elements are glued.
And the 90 has a dented filter ring.

They should be great on the NEX 7.

the 40mm on the CLE was my dream combo, that i really miss.

A black Fuji X101 with FF and and the 40mm 2.0 would be 100% perfect.

Thanks Nixland! I responded in the zeiss discussion thread. Thanks again for your thoughts on the Biotar 75/1.5 and for posting these two comparison shots. Wish my adapter would get here soon, so I don't have to free-lens it.

@Nixland, do you have a Exakta mount CZJ Biotar 85/1.5 or M42?
Mine is Exakta, and I am wondering what is a good adapter to EOS mount and get infinity focus?

Wayne, mine is M42 mount, the fat Biotar.
For exakta mount I don't know for sure. I read in some article that while it's no problem on the aps-c using exakta to EOS adapter, it needs some modification to avoid hitting mirror on 5D.

I was lucky I got it in near mint with more affordable price earlier this year
