ROKKOR Image & Discussion Thread


Post all your wonderful Rokkor images here.


    There were separate threads for Wide/UW and Telephoto. Here\'s the index:

    Wide/UW: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/954103/
    Normal-ish: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/924270 (this thread)
    Telephoto: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/954105

    Now starting with page 70 we\'re posting all in just this thread. You\'re more than welcome to keep the others alive if you\'d like also!

    Have fun!

Rokkor:
What are the differences, your likes, and dislikes about ROKKOR Normal-ish lenses?


What do the two-letter designations mean? Like ROKKOR-QD, ROKKOR-X, ROKKOR-PG, ROKKOR-PF, etc.

Did you know some ROKKORs were radioactive? ☢=☠


I\'m not very good but here some to start it off. This is the Auto ROKKOR-PF 55mm f/1.8. I paid $2 for it and another $2 for an almost identical one: Another ROKKOR-PF 55mm f/1.8 but shorter and with a smaller diameter . The short & small one\'s focus barrel was frozen up and the other had a tiny nick on the front element. So for $4 total and a front element swap I should have a pretty nice lens. I dunno the going rate for this lens on-line. Maybe it\'s $3 and I got ripped off.


I couldn\'t wait to swap the front element so here\'s the shots I took on the way home:

























































Except for the building and it\'s 100% crop these are all taken at f/1.8 (wide open).

I can\'t wait to see some nice ROKKOR samples from people who actually know how to use them.

ROKKOR Normal-ish Image Thread


Here\'s a thread just for normal-ish 40mm ~ 60mm ROKKORS. My goodness there have been a lot of ROKKOR variations over the years in the 40mm to 60mm range.

    There are also ones for Wide/UW and Telephoto. Here\'s the index:
