FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD! xD

At Tokyo Disneyland just before sundown with AnakChan's Summilux 50/1,4 pre-ASPH... a lens which I consider the best 50mm ever made. It's got the build, the smoothness, the positive clicks, the decent throw, the in-built hood, and a soft, but shaped OOF that modern designs simply do not have. It is stunning.

And most likely ridiculously expensive.
Great shot!

I love this shot! Think I love about old manual lenses are their lack of coating (well most of them) and that makes for beautiful softish glares that really add to the shot. And of course, not for everyone. If I wanted a high-contrast pic I would put on a 2km tube for a lens hood. biggrin.gif

Here are some older shots that I uploaded but Flickr didn't let me sort them and name them!

This lens is expensive because it is very rare. You can find earlier e43 versions as cheap as 900$, which they absolutely are worth. This version goes for about 2000-3000$ in good shape. Sean's version has peeling balsa glue but is in good shape otherwise. If it was the black aluminium version, I would have bought it from him but it's the heavy chrome version, which is mad heavy. Amazing lens. Every time I go back to another 50, no matter how sharp or contrasty or whatever, I feel empty, like I'm shooting for a checklist only.

Ugh, flickr's organization kills me.

^ Lovely dog! :smile_phones:

 

I'm not a big fan of flickr either. Have an account there, but never use it. One of these days I need to look for a site that really appeals to me.

Massive sensor, tiny camera.

The A7r is actually the same size or larger than many 35mm SLR cameras up and into the AF era. As soon as computerisation (what some people hail as great because of miniaturisation potential) kicked off inside cameras, SLRs became massive. The only problem is that the A7r, as nice an idea as it is, is a slower machine to operate than any AF SLR was and than any battery-less fully manual SLR or rangefinder. It is ridiculously slow. I sometimes wait up to 4 seconds before it decides that it should be off... or on. Not to mention write times, shutter lag. Great image quality, but ridiculous interface and electronic coupling.

Massive indeed.

Couple of pics I snapped up in the Holy Cross area of Colorado last summer when out on a hike.
