My first reaction was: Fred has got himself an old lens that needs a good CLA :-)
That probably says more about me than about you Fred

More Day 35

Photos above were made with a7 and this petit lens:

1 a7 + Meyer Trioplan 1:2.8 f = 3,5cm (1937; Korelle K)


Photos below were made with a7s and Jupiter:

2 a7s + Юпитер (Jupiter) 12 2.8/35 (Kiev/Contax)


The Jupiter-12 2.8/35 is a copy of the Zeiss Biogon 35mm 2.8. This is the version in Kiev/Contax mount. It's a remarkable lens because of its exposed rear element. The exit pupil is very close to the sensor and mounting this lens on the APS-C E-Mount cameras needs some kind of extension ring otherwise the rear element collides with the frame around the sensor.
No such collision problems on the a7.
I use it with a combination of 2 adapters: Contax/Kiev > M39, and M39 > E-mount helicoid adapter.
The combination is not perfect as I can't get infinty and the focus ring of the lens gets stuck halfway and doesn't reach MFD. Oh well ...

3 ЮПИТЕР (Jupiter) 12 2.8/35 (Kiev/Contax) with Kiev IIIa in the background


4 Exposed rear element ЮПИТЕР (Jupiter) 12 2.8/35 (Kiev/Contax)


The exposed rear element is a 'speciality' of the Jupiter 12 as you can see in this photo: left a Zeiss Opton Sonnar 50/1.5 (Contax) with a normal rear element, right the Jupiter 12. That rear element can double as a stopper for a decanter :-)



all photos made with Ге́лиос (Helios) 33 2/35 (cine lens)

Thanks Fred.
Yes very special. Making wide angles was a problem in those days. Today we have 10mm lenses but there was a time that a 40mm was called a wide angle (Meyer Weitwinkel Doppel Anastigmat f = 4cm).

Have a great weekend and happy shooting!

Some more pictures with the a900 and Mir 1B 37mm f2.8, taken today at the Kunstmuseum Bern. Photographing art created by someone else is always a bit delicate. I still decided to not pass on this great opportunity that made my visit to the museum even more interesting. Hope you enjoy them.

So far I only had barely the time to take and post pictures. I'd like to thank everyone who is commenting on pictures and hope to do some comments myself over the weekend.

@Wilu - 16 Step is very eye-catching!
I guess I was lucky enough to catch the decisive moment, here.

Wilu and mariszlo and some others are good at shots that are fisheye but don't look like fisheye (Wilu = 16i train platform, and mariuszlo = Oculus, the Oculus looks better with the fisheye than rectilinear!) - maybe an idea for a DPC or a challenge?
Basically, you have to put straight lines towards the center of the image or avoid them completely. Whether it's worth to make a DPC or a challenge I don't know - but then again, why not, there will certainly be some Dyxumers who are foolish enough to join in

Today was the day of the Sigma 18mm f3.5. A rather sharp lens (at least at the center) with strong vignetting. Plus mine is foggy as hell. I actually like this kind of soft focus effect but it's not something for every situation, particularly when considering the wide angle of view. This effect generally tends to work better with tele lenses, in my opinion.

I have a hazy 35mm and like it's atmosphere with the subject on (very) short distances.
Maybe we all should have at least one hazy lens. It's nice when you can turn a defect into a strength.

Not much time during the day to take pictures. So I tried my best in the evening. I ended up with two main subjects and many, many pictures. I decided to post them in two parts, beginning with a series of ...a spoon. They all have their fair share of flare .

I think you made the best of the situation Wilu, I like your artistic indoor creativity with the 24mm, especially the first set
Thanks, Fred. Those typical desperation shoots can lead into a lot of frustration and anger or into something rather creative and satisfying. In this case, i was lucky and ended up with a bunch of pictures that I like. I have a sweet spot for the 24mm focal length - maybe this helped a bit.

A good range of DayPrime styles and subject matter, well done all!

@Wilu: Like your creative spoon set
Thanks!

Wilu: great experiments with the spoonful of light
Glad you liked them.

Congrats to Wilu for the excellent spoon in the Weekly Exhibition!
Thank you, was happy to be included

@ Wilu, indeed a beautiful camera. I especially like the first shot with the bright red spot through the lens! Also "lost glory" has a lot of appeal for me
Yes it is! Maybe you like this one too (posted it already in the gear porn thread):
Hasta la vista, baby!


Originally posted by pegelli pegelli wrote:

@ Wilu, I think "lighten up" and "brighter than the rest" are the top shots from this shoot.
I have an ambiguous attitude towards them. On the one hand they turned out pretty much how I anticipated (which is not always the case and is a big encouragement) and they turned out rather appealing, I think. On the other hand, though, they are maybe a bit "sterile".

Originally posted by 4paul 4paul wrote:

Wilu I like the Mir and Flek!
I'm not a fan of the Mir (its MFD is horrible, it flares rather easily and not very nicely, I have a hard time to nail the focus, the focus throw is too loooong and the focus ring on my example is a bit stiff). But it does take rather nice pictures if everything works. So does the Flek, and with an ultra short MFD
