evening walk with Mamiya
Posted By: Voe, 06-19-2008, 06:14 AM

This evening I ate too much so I decided to go out for a short photo walk to assist the food digesting.

So here are the photos

The 4th one is taken through a glass window of a shop selling glassware like vases, glasses, plates etc. It was basically a bunch of wooden branches which has little pieces of glass imitating leaves sticked at the end of the branch. It looked nice through the window and I decided to take a shot.

Agreed, very good series.

Thank you for clearing up the glass leaves. At first I thought it was Ice, then figured out it must be plastic or glass.

Hey Voe,

those look really good all of them, composition-wise and IQ-wise as well !

I've heard nothing bad about any Mamiya Sekor SX standard lens, here's an overview. I recently fully converted (pull out the tiny pin and lock the aperture to 'manual') a Mamiya Sekor SX 1.4/55 and it's da bomb, really good and better on the K100D than on film IMO.

All the best, Georg (the other)

Gorgeous shots. They all have their unique look and feel.

When I read Mamiya, I thought you used a MF camera + digital back.

Voe, they are very good shots! Time for a shoot Sunday afternoon?

I have been busy every weekend, leaving my camera on my shelf for too long. Great to see these scenery out there while I am cramming books and talking to myself like a freak.

Well, it is my bad because I forgot to mention (probably because it was already past 11pm and I was tired) that I bought a Mamiya 55mm f/1.8 and the shots were made with this lens.
I kept on reading from other people's comments about this lens and I decided to buy one and sell my Mamiya 50mm f/2 which is a very sharp lens from wide open and I enjoy the color rendering very much.
And BTW I compared them at home this evening (I know I should do this during the day ) and found the 55mm f/1.8 @f/1.8 to be as sharp as my 50mm f/2 @ f/2 and they both have absolutely the same rendering of bokeh and color.
I like the 50-55mm lenses best, because they provide the most useful range for me when I want to have a general purpose lens that I can use to play with the DoF at the most affordable price. I think that's because the 50mm lenses are still easier and cheaper to make than lenses in any other focal length. I think I enjoy the bokeh better from a 85-135mm range lens but very often for more general stuff longer lenses have too narrow field of view, which can be often limiting.

Sure, no problems.
I hope that the weather will be fine.
