I have a sneaky feeling I will be spending it in India. Pancakes are easy to bring along unless they are Trioplan 5 cm from 35 mm folder (far too fragile) so my only remaining option is the rather boring Rokkor 45/2.


That's right Paul!

Wherever you are, whatever slim lens you choose, boring or fascinating, bring out them pancakes this weekend!

Happy shooting!

Are rangefinder lenses suitable for pancake weekend? I know a few of the more common pancake lenses such as the Industar had their origins in rangefinder world and I have a few RF lenses that are as small as my pancakes or smaller??

No idea. I have seen a list of possible pancakes in last years pancake week-end thread and my 45 Rokkor was in it. This is what Leo (darosa) posted last year:

Meyer Trioplan 5cm 2.9 (35mm folder)
Industar 9 (50/2)
Industar 50/3.5
Nikon 50/1.8 Series E
Voigtlander Snapshot-Skopar 25/4
Canon EF 40/2.8 STM Pancake
Sony E 16/2.8
Pinhole

And some great shots were made:

Tomorrow will be a little difficult to pancake as it is a long working day for me, but I will make a best effort and I have all Sunday with nothing else to do. Will all be OOC jpg with some Flickr processing (A7 WB on vintage lenses has proven unreliable) as I am on business but that should not spoil the fun.

Small RF lenses are great for Pancake weekend Chris, especially because their adapters are small too! :-)

Weather in India is hot and humid. I managed a few today, but tomorrow nothing else to do, slight rain at dawn, then the sun will be out, 33 C, no wind.

Antwerp was OK this morning, so with the "open harbour" day going on I made a brief visit to the soon to be demolished old dry-docks with my two pancakes. Pictures to follow soon.

Brought to you from India with Minolta MD Rokkor 45 mm 1:2. Not the fanciest of lenses, but like most Minolta primes a very good performer. As I have no means of processing RAW these are OOC jpg with modest Flickr adjustments.

I agree Paul, it's a very decent performer but focal length is here nor there. However my experience with it today on my A7 made me think I might even try to use it for Oktoberfest 1-prime to get more familiar with it.

The other combo I used is A6000 + E20/2.8. For some scenes I tried both combo's, so I'll start off with those.

Waiting for the cutting torch (or be sold?)

A7 + MD Rokkor 45/2


A6000 + E20/2.8




Majestic workshop door

A7 + MD Rokkor 45/2


A6000 + E20/2.8




Tug overhaul in the dry dock

A7 + MD Rokkor 45/2


A6000 + E20/2.8




Powder coating is an art

A7 + MD Rokkor 45/2


A6000 + E20/2.8



Since I had a "productive" morning at the dry-docks and other old parts of the Antwerp harbour there is more to follow for my pancake contributions this year.
