NYC snippets..
Lens: Cosinon 55mm 1.2 Camera: Pentax k5 Photo Location: NYC 
Posted By: saumendra, 03-26-2013, 10:49 AM

Took these random pics at the Times Square.. very touristy destination, I agree. And yet, quite a lot of human aspect of the Great City becomes visible... in a small block.

Had great problems with focussing manually with the 1.2 aperture.. some of these pics may have been stopped down.

Lesson: k5 live-view is a savior. Mostly.

Now that's a location worth visiting again and again, something different will always be going on there.

Focus with a 1.2 is never easy, but when you do get it right, the results are usually stunning.

nice set of images, although a few look soft to me (as opposed to mis-focussed). Might be the nature of the lens but one thing it does do well is the bokeh...maybe not to everyones tastes but I really like it
