    Sony Showcase Sony FE 28mm f 2

    I have it only for one day so these are initial observations. The threasld can be used as a showcase for the lens as well (I was surprised there wasn't one open give how old the lens is). Very beautiful rendition of the background at minimum focus. A very mild swirly bokeh at the edges (less...

    Challenge! My Gear A Week Challenge - Week 12 - Leica M240 - Voigtlander 12mm f/5.6 and Mitakon 28mm f/5.6

    More Leica, but this time Wide and Ultra Wide! Still trying to get to grips with the 12mm, but I got to use it and practice in order to understand it! Started today with the Ultra Wide as the 28mm should get here on 4/10. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

    Sony Finally a decent 28mm AF for E-mount?

    Viltrox apparently published a teaser for a 28mm AF, according to Sony Addict. Can't find the teaser myself, but I'm hoping this is true. Sony's own FE 2/28 is not to my liking, I tried 3 different samples in various shops and I found the pictures looking drab with greyish colors, although...

    Nikon Showcase Nikon Z 28mm f/2.8 (SE)

    This lens ... is just great (for what it is). It's not the fastest, it's not the sturdiest, it's not the best Z lens - but it doesn't try to be all that, either. It's just a very good lens that does reliably well, whatever subject matter you throw at it. If only Nikon had chosen to put it into...

    Leica Inexpensive 28?

    So is there any such thing as an inexpensive 28 that is worth the money? Voigtlander 28/2 Ultron can be found for ~$500 The old slower 28/3.5 is getting silly money :( Canon LTM 28/3.5 can be found for $350 It's the newer silver/black and I don't see too much haze. There's a Minolta 28/2.8...

    Nikon 28mm lenses

    Regarding 28mm f/2.8 lenses for Nikon. The Series E lens has for whatever reason gained in asking price and is now close towards 100 €. Some of you will say the time for Series E was when these lenses could have had for 50 € or so. A general consensus seems to be that the 28E has the worst...

    Manual Lens Minolta 28mm f2.8 MD W.ROKKOR

    Classic manual 28mm f2.8. One of several versions that were made in the 70s and 80s. Very nice lens with decent close focusing distance of 0.3m, nice coatings, and overall, very good image quality. If I could nitpick, the corners are never super sharp. However, I expected that from a lens from...

    Manual Lens Presenta Auto MC 28mm f2.8 m42

    One of my first m42 lenses that I picked up for my Samsung NX1000 mirror-less camera , back in 2014. I haven't used it as much with Samsung, or later, with Nikon D90, as much as I have with my Fujifilm X-E1. Not having any native Fuji AF lenses, I started collecting vintage glass again. Presenta...

    Leica Showcase Sankyo Kohki W-KOMURA 28mm f/3.5 in LTM

    Was given this lens as part of a 'payment' for cleaning/lubricating/repairing some Super Ikontas and other folders for a fellow film camera user. Turns out the LTM version is a rare beast. I've not come across many other examples and the prices on Ebay sold listings are beyond expensive...

    Manual Lens Nikon 28mm f/2.8 AIS

    Got this thing dirt cheap at a local camera store. Performs excellently on the Nikon Df and the Z6 with the FTZ. I may throw it onto some Fuji X cameras on day, but here are a few to get this lens thread going! Feel free to add your images taken with this lens here too!

    For reasons I cannot completely explain, I have wanted a Nikon SP rangefinder for a very long time, makes no sense, I will rarely shoot film again, I am not a fan of manual focus cameras anymore, there just something about the SP and its history that has always meant a lot to me. Well today...

    This is a bench on my front porch. Last night as I was taking the dog for, those with pets know, the porch light effect on the bench caught my attention for the first time. Hey, it SIJ right? So my plan for the today's image was to photo my bench in this light.

    Frosty today - minus 3 C here at mid-day and looks like it will stay like that most of the day - amazing that we still have roses in bloom. now the M8 plus a 28mm cannot really do close ups as the minimum focus distance is up to a meter - and this shot is right on the limit -then a big crop...

    got my feet up this evening so I've taken a few shots inside in artificial light which always reveal study areas. Never quite sure which to go for - square the horizontals or try to keep the verticals as vertical as possible and try to fix converging verticals. - Tripod used changed image...

    I'm in Savannah and was in classes all day. Tried to get a couple shots this morning before heading out from the hotel but decided to concentrate on the street below my hotel when I got back. Took the liberty to run this one through a Nik plugin to get the feel I was looking for.
