77ltd vs Cosina 55 1.2 vs Helios 58 vs Vivitar 28 CF vs DA 35

.


Spring breaks out around here like an escaped convict.

This magnolia tree got shot up today by 5 K-mount and 3 Nikon-mount
lenses. Below are some shots from the K-mount - tell me which you like
and which you think are attributable to which lens:


(all shot wide-open)


lens 1


lens 2


lens 3


lens 3 again


lens 4


lens 4 again


lens 5


lens 5 again




Choices are: 77 Limited, DA 35 macro, Helios 58 f/2, Cosina 55 1.2, and Vivitar/Komine 28mm f/2.8 Close-focus.

I don't have near enough knowledge on these lenses to make guesses, but I think photo #1 is great, I'll guess DA 35 macro.

I'm guessing lens 3 is the 35mm, kinda busy bokeh in the first image.
And lens 5 definitely looks like the Cosina!

I'll wait until more folks weigh in before saying what's what.

Note that some of these images are cropped to throw you off the trail.

Lens 3 is DA 35. Not in the market for the other lenses so I haven't seen much of them... just a guess

But lens 5 looks really intriguing... I'm guessing that's the Cosina.

I think #1 is that DA35LTD, but that could just be the wine talking...

Wow, bonanza of colours and stunning bokeh in your images

I really cannot tell the difference among the images taken by your lenses.

OK, here's the breakdown:

lens 1 - Helios 44-M-4 58 f/2
lens 2 - Vivitar (Komine) 28mm f/2.8 Close Focus Wide Angle
lens 3 - DA 35ltd f/2.8 macro
lens 4 - 77ltd
lens 5 - Cosina 55 1.2

1 & 2 were the hard ones, I guess.
