My Day 88:

1 DDR candy


The Penti was made in East Germany by Welta from c.1959. It was a half-frame camera. This is the original version with a Meyer Trioplan 30/3.5 (aka Penti 0, there were 2 more versions). It was available with a white, red, green, cyan, blue and olive body. Very flower power frivolous.

2 Eye contact with Jakob


3 Vase with flowers


4 Fading fence


all with a7 + Rodenstock XR-Heligon f=88mm (fast lens designed for medical X-ray imaging)

The Rodenstock XR-Heligon f=88mm is a very special and fast (around 1.0) lens. I glued an M42 adapter to the rear and use it with a slim M42 > E-mount adapter. No room for a helicoid unfortunately.

1 a7 + XR-Heligon f=88mm


2 a7 + XR-Heligon f=88mm


3 a7 + XR-Heligon f=88mm reflected


photos made with a7rii + Cyclop H3T-1 1.5/85 (another
special lens)

Had the pleasure to meet some (zebra-)members of the Meyer family @home - of course each one separately. No social gathering allowed at the moment, thus I also have no group shot


85.7 - "Orestor 135/2.8"

a7 + MinMD 85/2.8 Varisoft



85.8 - "Lydith 30/3.5"

a7 + MinMD 85/2.8 Varisoft

Tomorrow, after a very productive week 13, is the start of week 14 for 90-96 mm lenses.

I normally have two in the range, but one is out for CLA, so for me it's down to one single lens this week. However it's from my year of birth so I won't complain

But there's some famous macro's in this range too (Sony, Sigma, Tamron to name a few) and then last year we had a couple of exotic projector and old folder lenses that made an appearance, so let's see what we can do with the right lenses in times of social distancing and avoiding non-essential travel.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Thanks Michael! I blame it on Day Prime!
Lovely Meyer zebra glamour shots, I know mine want to be together, and yours won't be any different I'm sure, but alas that can't be helped atm ...

No excuse now we're confined - well relatively but here are some 85mm's
first two from the SAM 85/2.8 which reinforces my view that it's a lovely lens. All pics taken on the old A57 at shown settings. Another pleasure to work with, if only the A6000 had a front wheel....
#1 Blossom
85 small_7 by qwerkypics, on Flickr
1/1600;f7.1;ISO 200; -0.3ev
#2 Sprayed (not by me !) flowers
85 small by qwerkypics, on Flickr
1/640th;f8;ISO 400; 0ev
These few were taken on an old Minolta 28-85 bought for a few pounds in a pawn shop, bit of an old lump but quite nice rendering if you're lucky, not v sharp, takes the clip on lens hood from the Beercan
#3 The Octopus Tree
85 small_2 by qwerkypics, on Flickr
1/320th; f7.1; ISO 100; -0.3ev
#4   The Wall
85 small_4 by qwerkypics, on Flickr
1/500th; f8; ISO200;-0.7ev
Not quite sure why the AF picked out the leaves at the top, but there you go.....
#5 The Wren ?
85 small_3 by qwerkypics, on Flickr
1/125th;f8; ISO 100;-0.7ev
#6 Great Orme
85 small_5 by qwerkypics, on Flickr
1/125th;f9;ISO200;-0.7ev
The Great Orme is the big lump of rock on the horizon about 35-40 miles (50-60km)away
#7 Stormy Sky
85 small_6 by qwerkypics, on Flickr
1/1000th; f9; ISO200;+0.3ev
Sorry to post so many, but better than the 15 I first selected !!
I've a load from earlier days that I'll put on the training thread for those interested some time in the next week or so.
Good to be back & thanks for looking
Stay safe & well

PS Loving some of the bokeh here, can't match that !!
So many wines, so little time......

One last one before we go into the 90s. A rather painterly looking image I feel.

85.12: Tulips

Camera Model: ILCE-7RM2
Lens: Minolta MD Rokkor 85mm 1:2
Aperture: f/2
Exposure Time: 0.01 sec (1/100)
ISO: 100

Guilty as charged:
Zeiss Ikon Super Talon CF 2,5 / 90 MC
Helios F-92, 92mm f/2 lens from USSR projector Leti-60M. Optical design based on Biotar 1.5/75, not unlike Leo's Cyclop 1.5/85. The F-92 has funky looking multi-coating and has a period correct zebra design.
