The Despicable Pentax-M 85mm F2
Lens: Pentax-M 85mm F2 
Posted By: fwwidall, 08-31-2018, 11:55 AM

Its not despicable at all - quite the opposite.

I used some Lego characters as my subjects, and made the one from 'Despicable Me' the main one. Just a pathetic ploy to get you to look, and hopefully comment 1000 posts still needed for this month's raffle....

I shot the Lego characters from approx. 3'. The characters were approx. 1" apart and I had some Xmas lights set up approx. 8' further back. I shot wide open at F2.

I find this to be a wonderfully sharp lens.

While I had things set up I tried out a few more lenses:

The lenses are:

A- SMC Pentax-FA 50mm F1.4
B - SMC Pentax-M 50mm F1.7
C - Super Multi Coated Takumar 55mm F1.8
D - SMC Pentax-DA 40mm F2.8
E - Super Takumar 50mm F1.4
F - SMC Pentax-M 85mm F2

They were all shot wide open at maximum aperture.

Lovely bokeh all around. Each is nice in its own way.

Very nice series. I will give this a go when I get the time. I have four 50's, an 85 and a 100 - should be interesting.
