Always great shots but this one is just perfect!

Had 30 minutes of sun yesterday so grabbed a couple of nearby shots. Nothing very exciting, but forgot how nice the lens is, even if I quickly lost the light yesterday!

A few from me, taking a break from the D-FA* 85mm on a casual walk or two with the Revuenon 55mm f1.2.

Spot on, surely it canít be that difficult for Pentax to round out the system with extension tubes that work with the full range of lenses.

I canít help but think they are not interested, after all we still have no modern FF TC and I would expect this to have their priority, even given the additional challenges of designing a TC over the tubes.

Revuenon 55 1.2 worth it?
Posted By johnc

Not much, but this thread has made me think I should give it a try again. Not that there's anything wrong with it, but I have lots of other options around this FL and try to do some rotation!

Looking back in lightroom, I have personally always got better shots from this than the A50 1.2 for some reason. I am not a regular portrait shooter but l got really nice ones (well, ones that pleased me!) on APSC with this lens. The lens size is really unobtrusive and that helps the subjects relax.

The bokeh is really unusual on this lens, under 'normal' conditions it is really 'dreamy'. However, under the conditions of circular OOF highlights, the discs have unusual bright edges that may or may not be desirable. Technically, with modern lenses you can find better/sharper of course but this lens gives a lovely vintage look at a reasonable price.

I am embarassed to say I never tried it on FF - I need to fix that! On FF, I do like using fast primes like this with extension tubes for garden macros, a nice way to explore the lovely bokeh of these lenses, so may try that soon!

I really liked it, I used it a fair bit on APSC and liked the results, but haven't tried it much on K-1.

The Bokeh is well known for being a little distinctive. It's certainly not unpleasant, I like it. I would honestly say I do like the lens for its colours as well as the wide-open performance and handling. Nice for portraiture on APSC and I really like it for botanical subjects and food and drink shots. Partly owing to the colours I think!

I have A50 1.2 as well and I actually find the Revuenon a little easier shoot somehow, depite the fact it isn't an A lens. Just feels a little easier to nail focus to me. Perhaps my expectations of A50 1.2 are too high, but I like the revuenon results more (wide open). Stopped down... the A50 is amazing.

I paid £200 ($260) for mine ten years ago, it was badly wrapped and damaged in the post and so I got a part refund of £50 to offset the pain. A lot less than I paid for A50 1.2 (roughly half), but not really a bargain given the condition.

I wouldn't buy this lens for an investment piece, but if you want to do some wide open manual focus shots it's a great choice and a lot better value than A50 1.2.For $280 today I would want nice condition and to feel like I would use it a fair bit I think?

As far as I can tell, the lens profile only really corrects the vignette (accurately, it must be said).

I like vignetted images anyway, but I am happy to correct the image then put the vignette size/shape/strength where I want it afterwards.

So it maybe saves a couple of clicks, if that!

Only had a quick go but seems like very quick and accurate vignette correction. It doesnít seem to do much for distortion correction (I guess nothing needed there?).
