very good deduction skills indeed.
The lens hood was pressed on the side bars of the cot, which is 65cm wide. The little one is around 30cm from the lens. Lens is indeed FA*24 shot at f2.8...
Well done...

any guesses?
I'm going to guess ... hey, wait--ok, I've been out of the loop, but is that your baby? I thought you weren't due for a while.

If so, congrats!

Well congratulations! You'll always have someone to shoot now!

Back to the game--that looks like a longer lens than I'm used to seeing from you, and it doesn't look like the out of focus highlights from a FA 100 macro, and it's too long for the 77 (but close to the look).

Did you ever have an F/FA 135?

spot on!
it's FA135/2.8!
Well done... I sold it because it was tad too long for me but the IQ was great. Talking of FA100/2.8, I actually prefer it to the 135. And I'm in process of rebuying it right now, would you say the OOF of 135 is better or worse than 100?

Hey, cool! I had the F 135, which I think is essentially the same.

I now have the 100 Macro WR, and I'm very happy with it, and I think that's optically the same as the FA 100--is that right?

I think up close the F 135 and 100 WR both have exceptional bokeh.

But the 135 had more outlining on OOF highlights wide open--at least at longer distances--so that, coupled with it looking like a longer focal length, is actually how I guessed. The 100 macro seems to have more uniform discs, so in that way, it's the winner.

Plus, coming from you, I figured it wasn't a zoom, so that counted out a lot of lenses

Not saying I don't miss the 135 though--what a great little lens

Ilya,
One of the best threads on whole PF, thanks a lot!

axl,
congratulations! And as for your lens I would suggest some Leica - mainly cause of colors and OOF highlights rendering. I'm glad I'm late with this and you have the right answer published

Ok, if anybody's still interested here's my pitch.






Zig

P.S.
Sorry, I'm nubie studying PF albums and picture insert functionality.

Any hint?

I can try for closer subject distance, and some real life object to measure the size, distance, focal, DOF/f-stops, and also subject to background, guessing distance to background, bokeh, color rending, zoom or prime...

but in this case, it is very difficult.

Based on both photos, they look like to come from a 28/35/40mm.
Depends on the light condition, which can vary 2-4 f-stops during winter/snow condition, and white balancing or not. My best guess is early morning in some day late winter by looking at the shadows, perhaps with f2.8 if 28mm, or @f3.2 if 40mm...

and based on your traces in this forums: Tokina AT-X AF280PRO

hoanpham,
ok, here it goes:
- it was a very bright winter day and a bit cold one (-15F or -25C whatever grade you prefer)
- that was the home location for that lens
- since I don't have (nor did have when making those shots) ND filter I had to stop down a bit from wide-open not to go beyond ist DS max shutter speed
- M42-PK adapter was used
- that lens is one stop faster then any Tokina as far as I know (and I didn't have 280Pro that time yet, only AF270)
- you're slightly wrong about lens focal length

With all these hints given I think the next post will be spot on

Zig
