Yes it is.


I have to change that statement. I just took it off camera and looked with a strong light and it looks round. That makes me think it was stopped down.


If you thought it was wide open, then maybe it just got bumped 1/2 stop down. That would probably be enough to introduce the shape.

Thanks for the feedback on my airport set.

Jacob D, flower shots seldom do much for me but I love the first two. The last one is great too.

A few photos from a recent trip:
Contax G 45/2


























And a few from today, went back for a quick stop at a favorite spot (a cemetery). All with the Zeiss Distagon T* 35/2.8 in C/Y mount. I got a little sloppy with PP, but... it's late.

twelveish -- Wonderful sense of depth in the those last four B&W shots. I have a lot to learn.

If it is, then you probably have a faulty adapter, or you're looking at the lens without the adapter attached to it. Without an adapter (or an FD mount rear cap) mounted to the lens, the aperture closes to what seems to be the f/7.2 position. With the lens on an adapter, the aperture blades should move completely out of the way at f/3.5 (i.e. a perfectly circular opening).

A lot of great stuff lately! Sorry I haven't posted much. The black and white work on the last few pages has been incredible, really good depth to the images! This is from our fire station in Omaha, Ne. I used the 'toy-warm' filter, in camera to create this. Shot with the Nex 6 and Nikon 28mm, 2.8.

Not a very good lens but a FL I don't have otherwise in C/Y mount.
But I think I can use it for some occasions.

Really good stuff, Michiel! If you have nothing in 24mm, what is holding you from getting the superlative Leica Elmar M?

Here are four with the NEX 6 from a recent trip to Rome. I brought 3 lenses on the trip; CV 15/4.5, Leica M 24/3.8 Elmarit and Leica M 35/2 Summicron

I am bidding on a scaffolding instead of a lens Besides I can't put an Elmar on the Speedbooster.

First two with the Elmarit-M 28/2.8 ASPH, next two with the SEL16F28+UWA (when is that Zeiss 12mm going to ship??), last with the Super-Elmar 21/3.4.

Taylor, I really like the first two. The rendering seems classic Leica: detailed, but not in-your-face.

Thanks Al - yeah, I agree. The fourth picture also has a real presence to it that my pictures with the 16/2.8 just didn't have (of course, very different focal lengths). It's easy to get bit by the Leica bug.

Derek, I really like your first two.
Taylor, your second one and last ones really speak to me.

Good work, both!
