This weekend a new toy landed: the KP16 50mm/f1.2 projection lens.
A real bargain for an ultra fast lens (20 euro, delivered from Ukraine).
I was in doubt about a Rokkor 50mm/1.2, but thought: let's try this first.

Some first shots (on A7R2)

#1



#2



#3



#4



The next two are in FF mode, just for comparison, the previous ones were in APS-C mode.
On FF it gives a rond dark circle, but the outer parts show lots of (even swirly) character. I will probably end up cropping from FF now and then.


#4



#5



#6 And it can produce an interesting flare!


I have to find some victims for portraits with this lens too.

Thank you! Yes, they all should be at 1.25, but it's possible it was stopped down a bit for the last one.

I was thinking about getting the 28mm 1.4 first, but I wanted something fast and longer first I like the lens, it feels and handles a lot nicer than you'd expect at this price point. Focusing isn't really easy at 1.25 because it also glows a lot - which makes for "character" but isn't ideal for portraits of course.

Oh, and it gets impressively sharp by 5.6.

Three more wide open from today

So, what's the cheapest way into the Ultra Fast world? (for A-mount - I don't have a FF E mount yet )

The cheapest is probably the Neewer 35mm F1.2 unless you want to adapt a projector or C-mount lens.


A6000 + Neewer 35mm F1.2
ISO 100 1/3200 s f/1.2
Sony A7RIV LA-EA5
Pentax Q7 5-15 15-45/2.8 8.5/1.9 11.5/9

Ha! Yeah those lenses are hazy and low contrast at max aperture but that's what I like about them!

The lamp post looks nice.

The second bridge shot - man, and I thought the Rokkor 50 1,4 and 58 1,4 showed a lot of glow already

Yesterday I took this photo with my iPhone (the 56mm equivalent lens)


Because for once I went out without my camera and I was like, ah man, I gotta come back with my real camera and my 50/1.2. So I came back to that spot this morning.

I thought the 50/1.2 would be a good choice, and I wanted to shoot at 1.2 (and a CPL filter) to give it a nice dreamy look. Here's what I came up with:

Standing on the same bridge, opposite direction




Reproducing the iPhone shot (obviously with way different processing, in addition to shooting at 1.2)



And another shot at 1.2

All on A7 and MD Rokkor 50/1.2

I think Louise left the 58/1.2 at 1.2...



To shoot this image


But I think it turned out OK.
