@Cucoo: The first image is strikingly impressive, and I guess it's taken at F/1.25. Did you stop down a bit for the last one? What's your opinion about the lens? I am really happy with the 7Artisans F/1.4 28mm for Leica M so far. It would be nice if you could post a couple of images in the "Other mount lenses"-thread.

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

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.
