All I can say is that it was listed as suitable for the Dyxum pancake challenge. As I am in Rokkor mode, perhaps I can buy me a real pancake...

Purist or not but if I remember correctly for the "Pancake Challenge" here we defined a pancake lens as one where the length (between flange and filter ring) is less than half of the diameter. The Rokkor 45/2 is indeed longer than the Rokkor 45/2.8, however the 45/2 is still a pancake by our own definition (just)
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Konishiroku Hexanon 47/1.9, the fixed lens of the Konica Auto S. I had it focusing with its own helicoid and decided to convert it to use an external helicoid. I messed up pretty badly and noticed after gluing the M42 lens mount that the aperture ring turns without moving the aperture blades. So now it is stuck at f/1.9. No biggy, it is plenty sharp wide open and generally very very nice.

I guess the pancake weekend is not for purists then.
I think it was Addy L that mentioned the real Rokkor pancake during one those weekends.

I wouldn't bother with the real pancake, it's somewhat rare so expensive; just   compare specs and it is clear the faux pancake is a much better deal. Perhaps it has better looks, but the adapter makes any pancake fat as a beached whale.

Fred_S: Black and white works very well here, thanks to the structures in the sand. The clouds appear like a soft echo of those structures. Very nice, indeed.

Thanks Wilu!

darosa: Another impressive set of yours. 1 Chaos under our feet is my favourite. You recognised the humour in this trivial subject and captured it so well that the viewer gets the message, without a single word. It's one of those pictures that make you smile.


Thanks again Wilu! I love seeing and making such photos!

Retiring for now due to computer trouble. I hope repairs don't take too long.
