Vivitar Close Focus 28mm f2.8



More glowing from the Focal 28mm f2.8
Also, I had put some of that frosty scotch tape on the flash so it would do the coverage for 28mm (almost) and didn't hot-spot.

Really beautiful 3d-ish look, and crisp too.

That gets me curious! What is the country of manufacture, and could I see a picture of the lens?

For comparison purpose, here is high-performance Minolta/Leica wide-angle on macro:

There was a #1 extension tube involved, and the equipment was like-anvil heavy. You wouldn't carry it often. I think that it will be straightforward and easier to do at least as well with a Pentax.

currently do not have a pic of the lens and sadly I do not know the manufacturer

Guesswork: On that first photo, m42 era optics in a 90's lens, really powerful 3d punch so long as the sun is at your back? Blue dot bokeh away from the sun or red fringe if towards the sun(magic comes with a cost)? Did I guess right?
yes the sun is behind me

convenient "A" contacts and the compact K-50: Awesome!!!
the 'a' contacts are great!!! best feature is useful flash options!!! however my K-50 has the aperture block failure so I was all manual but works fine on the bodies I have

On my experience with digital, then by the time it is able to make a photo, the pets have run off, and the digital delay has made the pet photography utterly impossible.
in this case I was prolly at f5.6 and had the distance at 5 feet.....I shoot my puppers very often and generally take the preset approach when shooting them wide angle....I figure out what general exposure I can use in a given area...I will set the distance scale to work with the f stop and try to capture them within the area the lens says it will be in focus.....a typical scenario would be 1/500 f5.6 at a distance of 3 feet or go to 1/800 at f4 for stuff around 5 feet
