Latest Review Posted Ricoh Auto Rikenon 55mm F1.4
Picked this up on eBay for a song, wanted to play with a fast aperture 55mm other than my Super Tak 55mm to see if I'd like to get a DA*55 f1.4 eventually.

Started off indoors, with Grandpa watching my daughter for the day. Shot at f2.8 I think, maybe wide open as it's a little soft, with a single bare Yongnuo 560iv flash bounced against the wall behind me remoted with a 560TX.

Moved outside for some fresh air, notice a little fringing on the far trees. f5.6

All in all a great little lens. Wish the focusing ring had a little more damping on it so it didn't glide so fast but that's about the only quibble. Colors are nicer than my Super Tak 55 f1.8, and similarly sharp. A great little lens!
