...or the yellow rope/string on the right half of the photo - oops, sorry Nice job - I don't think I'd have the patience to attempt one of those. Very cool effect, though!
Well it makes it even more interesting for me

That's one heck of a sharp lens!
The M50/1.4 truly is a fantastic lens. I have no legitimate complaints about it. Unfortunately, I somehow bent the filter ring on mine ever so slightly. I have no idea how. Just a few weeks ago filters went on like butter. Now there's a flat spot and nothing will screw on. No idea how or when it happened.

Some Brenizer method experimenting:


K10D, M50/1.4, ISO 140

I like it... the only question I have is the skyline above the trees, doesn't look natural, did you select something out? What software are you using? May give it a go, if ever I take a tripod out... Congrats!

Nope, the sky's just blown out...
This was also all done handheld. Software used was Autopano Giga.

As a PS, I also think the M50/1.4 is a truly fantastic lens!

I was unaware of this technique, but it's absolutely ingenious. I very much want to try it out.

Two more from the 50/1.4





You want to talk about sharp? Check out these photos at full-size:

The first was scaled down, but didn't need to be. It was tack-sharp at full resolution.

the aperture is 1.7 for sure, look at the circles in the bokeh, they are not from closed aperture I have this lens and even from 2.0 the circles are not circle

Wow, I really like those shots. The M50/1.7 seems made to take flower pics, although I was getting bored with them a bit - too easy. You just managed to interest me again. Lovely.

The first shot is priceless. Well done.

I have a Pentax 35-105mm 3.5. When I won it on a bid, it didn't state it had been dropped. The lens shoots great, but was unable to put on any filter or hood.

So, following some instructions, I was able to using a wooden dowl to gently pound it back into shape with no problem. I think if you do a search you'll find some pictures with the setup to do.

Thanks for the tip - I've found some pretty convoluted fixes online; hopefully I'll find something simple.
