My new old Kiron 28mm

I just got my new old kiron 28mm f2.8.

(Image from ebay auction)

It's in great shape. I took a couple of shots. I noticed the minimum focal distance was pretty close, so I tried an experiment. I don't know if this is really the minimum focal distance or not, but it sort of works.

Looks like about 7 inches.

Here's a quick shot of my youngest daughter:

This was either wide open, or one stop down. 1/60 of a second. ISO 800.

I love my other Kiron (Vivitar 75-205) and am pleased with this one so far.
