Here a few pics I took right after buying a Rokkor 50mm 1.4. I also used a Rokkor 300mm 4.5 handheld and a SEL55210 with and without 1.7 TC

@alan_m: was the lens, it has a very smooth rendering, great shots by the way, very spot on focusing.

Thanks, and thanks!

Thank you Nex Barker. I hope the new FF NEX has less problems but I doubt it.


Just bought this old zebra Berogon 35/3,5 for a few euro's. Seems to be an old Isco-Göttingen design.
Isco lenses can be really nice. I have a week spot for these old German lenses

Makes a nice portraitlens on the speedbooster. My grandson.

Oohps I made a mistake; these two are just with a regular Exakta adapter!













An one with another old zebra.

Thanks Philber - though there are five shots in my second set - did you mean the windsurfers or the islands/boats shots?

both leica m 28/2






leica m 50/2 (v4) f/2-f/4

I'm learning Many locations here are hours under the shade when the golden hour arrives, because of the big ridgelines. Yet the last "local", site specific sun can be pretty great, beaming straight down steep canyon walls and casting long shadows-- the first two shots here.

Many sweet and fun shots up there. I love the variety. Sebboh, you inspire me to learn the stitch. Really nice landscapes---also with high sun

The last picture really looks like an ad from the fiftys

What kind of beautiful outrageous car is this?

Ronny: That 35/2 would be very interesting on the Lens Turbo I bet 35mm is the next focal length I want to try with it.

It's a shame the flange distances don't play well together between EF and Sony A-Mount. I'd love to try my 70-200 on the Lens Turbo but it's EF mount.

My plan down the road is to snag more ZF lenses for manual aperture control w/ a Nikon->Canon adapter. Sneaky stuff.

It's a 1937 Cord, Amelia Earhart had one too:






This one differs from hers in that it is supercharged and can go 130mph. I think only 196 were made. It's worth around 220k today. Ian Fleming was a fan of the Cord: "... Bond liked fast cars and he liked driving them. Most American cars bored him. ... But Leitner had got hold of an old Cord, one of the few American cars with personality, and it cheered Bond to climb into the low hung saloon, to hear the solid bite of the gears and the masculine tone of the wide exhaust. Fifteen years old, he reflected, yet still one of the most modern-looking cars in the world. ..."
(from the chapter "Death of a Pelican")


TY for kind words, guys. I'm improving in spite of myself
