Yes, I think this will be a relatively quiet week with some uncommon focal length. Fortunately I have one that qualifies, a recent acquisition of a Voigtländer APO Lanthar 65/2 macro. A lens with a phenomenal sharpness and detail, while at the same time a smooth (but not dull) and pleasing bokeh.

Fot the first two I experimented for the first time with focus stacking (I downloaded a 30 day trial of Helocon focus)

65.1: Tulip

Helicon focus stack of 27 frames, slight crop


65.2: Camellia

Helicon focus stack of 20 frames, square crop, but used the full height
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Thanks all for the favourable comments on the tabletop shot of the old OM system, much appreciated

While my collection is well covered from wide to tele FLs meanwhile, it's not a full complete set of all OM Zuiko primes. There are many more especially with faster F-stop, but I was not really after those (heavier) lenses.

And yes Pieter agree, those little Zuikos are fun to use and still give amazing results on a digital camera like the a7.
But be aware that the Zuiko 35 Shift has one essential flaw, there is no locking of the shifting dovetail joint, it depends on friction only So when taking long exposures you need to remember to support the lens especially when fully shift up, because it slowly might slip down. Of course if you are after slightly blurry images, you can omit this

Thanks Fred, I will definitely try further since there's still a lot to learn. I also like the tulip better than the other camellia.

Here's a few non stacked 65 mm shots

65.3: Helleboris



65.4: Helleboris 2



65.5: Just a weed



65.5: Common mullein


All A7ii + Voigtländer APO Lanthar 65/2 macro

Back from a visit with mom who doesn't have internet and spotty cell service - I had 168 dyxum email posts - whew!

I had film developed, many of them with day prime lenses (28/35/50 Rokkor and AF), I'll post them in the film challenge.

Fred_S I have a very cheap glassed adapter, I like it, I call it the Spherical Aberration Multiplier - in the exact center it is "normal", in the corners it gets very mushy and glowy. I'll post some in the film challenge.

pegelli I love the look of the 65/2, thanks for posting, maybe I'll have the cash one day.

woodrim good to see azaleas, but isn't it early?! My mom is in the panhandle of Florida and they are past peak already.
