They were open for a while, take-out only, after the gov shut down restaurants, but they've been completely closed for a few weeks now. I truly hope they will rise from the ashes... one of my favorite places.

A Brenizer image taken looking downwards into the garden of my parents-in-law's neighbours. I don't have my M 85mm f/2 where I'm isolating so here I used the M 100mm f/2.8, which gives a sharper image but with a less pronounced effect.

April Single In Challenge 2020 with K1ii & M50/1.4

One more done. Four to go. The end of my adventures in M primes is getting near and faster than I anticipated when I decided to shoot them thru in Challenge. I expected to keep more off months in between. Now 34 months daily shooting in 3 years looks realistic. Daily shooting has become routine and I have back up ideas for those days when too tired or busy to spent time and energy in finding a shot. I shot and posted daily, so challenge executed perfectly

I found a way to include pixelshift into my shooting routine and took several shot with it this month. I see no reason why I wouldn't keep using it in future.

The battle of fifties is interesting. Now that I have shot a month with each both in APSC and FF, I still can't pick a clear winner. But I have figured out the use cases for them. I found f1.4 to be the portrait fifty. For landscape work and walkaround I still prefer f1.7. Macro obviously is the best for macro work.

M50/1.4 is best when working in soft even light. Then the results are soft and creamy. OOF highlights tend to go into small bubbles which can turn bokeh real busy, but occasionally even that may produce special and good looking results. Not a single shot with sun in the frame made it into my monthly album. They just were too bad. However some backlight shots turned out good.

This ain't no modern lens. Wide open is clearly softer than f2, vignetting is severe and doesn't offer corner to corner sharpness. The rendering and bokeh are often worth shooting wide open even at the cost of sharpness. Also to my surprice the best landscape of the month was taken wide open. It gave special rendering and feeling to the shot which I seem to like a lot

I think f1.7 will remain my go to fifty, but wide open performance and qualities in low light portraits (which I didn't put thru test this month) will keep reason enough to keep this lens. At least until I get DFA*50 or one of the f1.2's, but can't see myself putting down that much money in foreseeable future.

In may it's time to take M120/2.8 out for a ride.

Wide open:




f2


f2.8




f4


f5.6
