Taken this past weekend at my Mum's place.
Our Bleeding Hearts are no where near blooming.
It was quite bright out, hence the super fast shutter speed.
I don't normally shoot that fast but the results were better than I expected.



Well done, Scott!

Very nice and asthetic in deed!

I love the colour and the clever use of bokeh here.

(Moved these images to this thread.)

Converted from PEF by PPL





Series here: Zenfolio | David Anthony | Saturday Afternoon with Krys and Brook
Shot mostly been f/2 and f/3.5
Great job with the focusing on the first image! That's the only challenge with this lens, getting the focus spot-on, if one can do that, then there is nothing left but rewards. Nice color, and rendering and bokeh on all those shots. Lower light, available light focusing can be tricky with this lens, so you did a great job with the lens. Makes me want to get another one!

I saw that too, Simon!

It's probably a good thing Pentax bodies can't accept Leica M mounts...

Good for LBA, that is...

forget the K7, high speed b&w film with the voigtlander 35/1.2 and the 50/1.1 would be sick

Hmmm, yeah, not sure if I can make that one work, even if I did borrow your dremel.

Well, for altering an $1100 lens, I'd spring for a proper grinder and tap set.

$1100? Forget it then, I had enough trouble manually focusing the F1.4. Besides, I still have a Leica "R" lens to convert.

Thanks Brian. Getting the split-image focus screen and then getting it dialled-in has made a huge difference to the focus of all my images. Anyone using a lens brighter than f/4 should have one.

Thanks! The doggie was kind of lively sort and I had to take more than one shot to get one with no motion blur (almost, there *might* be some with 100% crop but anyways the owner was happy) but patience paid off this time.

What do you mean by "dialled-in"? Using shims to calibrate it?

But Nisen bokeh seems to self manifest itself here.
I thought the Nokton were a bokeh king. Do you know of a (K-mount) lens that has better bokeh?
