Pentax Q with Samyang 85mm 1.4
Apr 24, 2013

Stopped down to f8 or so

Beautifully smooth bokeh

Picture perfect pilings

I don't know what kind of bird this is.

But he's damn cute.

I sharpened the hell out of the photos in photoshop (auto sharpen.) In addition I oversaturated them.  Magenta has been removed from some photos too as there is signifigant bokeh fringing with anything less than f8.  F1.4 yields good results if you're ready to remove an obscene amount of magenta fringing.  F8 is super sharp.  There is no communication between the lens and the camera so f stops are unavailable.  I used a cheap ebay viewfinder that sticks to the back of the camera on suggestion of some members here.  Thanks guys, I absolutely love it.  I also love the 85mm 1.4 lens and highly recommend it.
