Good work with the 85's Paul, the line in 85.3 seems to glow. I also like the repeating oof shapes in 85.1


My first lens this week is a little out of order. It's the M-Elmarit 90/2.8 that my dad used when he started to take macro shots of flowers with a M2 and a visoflex SLR "contraption" that looked something like this:



These days witha Hawk adapter on an A7ii it's a lot easier to handle

90.1: Pink tulips



90.2: Yellow tulips



90.3: Pink + yellow tulips


All A7ii + M-Elmarit 90/2.8 (M39), all at f2.8

Your 85.1 and 85.3 are great! I hope I can do as well for day 85.
My lens choice is (still) limited though

Thanks Fred. The Samyang 1.4/85 is A-mount, not expensive and remarkably good. However, as can be seen from the images it is all about smoothness of the OOF areas, not about character.

Smootness can be nice as well. Though choice, smoothness or character

Impressive machine Pieter! Is it still in the family? In what way is the Elmarit out of order?

Unfortunately my father traded in the Visoflex and his M2 (and an Elmar 50/2.8) for an Olympus OM2. I still have "my own" M2 but no visoflex and he donated me his 35 mm Summaron and this 90 mm Elmarit. The Elmarit is "out of order" because normally my 85 mm's should be used/posted first, technically it's very much OK. Probably should have said "out of sequence"

I went to a presentation on wine growing in Belgium followed by Belgian wine tasting. The talk was outstanding and very informative, however the wine was (let's try to remain positive) "average", but it provided some photo opportunities


85.6: Preparations



85.7: White



85.8: Red


All A700 + Min 85/1.4 @ f1.4

My last lens for the week
A Leica M-Elmar 9 cm f4 (M39) that I bought second hand for 80 DM in 1973 . According to the serial number it was made in 1956, so it's the same age as I am.


90.4: Hold that tree



90.5: "Eikel", literally translated it means "acorn", but over here I think it's more in the meaning of "jerk"



90.6: Decorated tree



90.7: Pavement textures to help the visually impaired to determine their safe path


All A7ii + M-Elmar 9 cm f4 (M39), @ f4
