I really like this; the colours are so nice and rich. And yes, the bokeh rocks too

That is a brilliant shot! I love it.
How many prints have you sold of this image?
Zip...nada...none...I don't sell my photos; never really thought there would be a market for them

Here is a shot taken with an old chrome-nosed auto Mamiya Sekor f/2 50mm.
Bought it for very cheap together with an Auto Yashinon-DX, also with chrome nose, and with the same specs (6-elements double gauss f/2 50mm).
I wanted to check if both were Tomioka-made (the Yashinon is), but it turned out that they have a front glass of slightly different diameter, so no, the Mamiya was probably made in-house.
Mamiya Sekor lenses seem to enjoy little appreciation among digital photographers, but this lens deserves some praise.
The picture is unresized (I never do it) and uncropped. Straight jpg conversion at default RawTherapee settings.
Clicking on the image takes you to Flickr, so pixel peepers can download the original and check it at 100%.
The lens was used at its worst: wide open and at minimum focusing distance. Despite that, the only area in focus (the very top pf the inflorescence) is sharp enough, the bokeh is great, and I see no lateral or longitudinal chromatic aberration. I've seen no fringing at all even in more complicated conditions.
I find the controlled glow in OOF areas quite beautiful.
What do you think?



Not bad for a $25 lens....

You should never ask me what I think So I really like the "feel" this photo is given by the softness of the bokeh and the ferns do a really nice job of framing the flowers. I guess my only criticism from an artistic point of view (so you can duly ignore it) is that my eyes are drawn to the white flower cluster down left of center and then my mind want to see focus there.

Thank you! I'm really having fun with these vintage Takumars. There are some neat gems out there.

Because it was in the front row in my cellar, so it was among the first to be arranged for the photo

It's in the back for the same reason as the three Laphroaigs....

Yes, I just bought a proper Pentax screw mount adapter for my 400mm Tak. The other one I have gets jammed in the K mount....scary. I can't wait to play around with that beast again. I really need to buy a big ugly tripod too....maybe at the used camera store.

It's a test picture, for that sole reason I shot wide open a photo that required to stop down the lens to at least f/8.
At MFD the depth of field is minimal.
I guess I have to take another shot stopped down...

I used the move the camera method on this one. Focus set to close focus and slowly rocking back, waiting for the catch in focus to trip.
