  • Thanks, Irakliy! I liked quite a lot your descriptions of the Mandler glowe-ers, i.e. the 35/1.4, the 50/1 Noct and the 90/2 Summicron. I use these lenses with the sony a7 and they behave very ...
  • Yes! Still have the OM1 (n) and the 55/1.2. I think it has a radioactive element, the lens has a yellowish tint. The om1 viewfinder is brutal and I would not recommend it for sensitive eyes. It is...

  • My post has nothing to do with the 21/1.4 and I am not sure if it is appropriate in the first place. So I would like to apologise in advance. Some time ago there was a discussion about the prices ...
  • Μπράβο, Κώστα! Το πορτρέτο είναι καταπληκτικό. Και τί λέει το βλέμμα τησ κοπέλας; Έρχεται η καταιγίδα. Αυτό λέγεται να πιάσει κανείς τη στιγμή.
  • Классная переписка! Ребята, может быть вам этот видеоролик понравится. Счастливо! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uwaav1FvRyk
  • Well spotted and documented! I spotted a similar masterpiece in a public toilet in Oxford in October 1992. The author had also signed his name. I did not have a camera with me so you have to take ...
  • Wonderfully written, superbly illustrated! I am not English so no understatement is required. Cheers, Theo
  • I have never had the 35/1.4 Contax. But I have the 35/1.4 Fuji and this lens was the reason I started shooting with the system. In 2012-13 there were only 3 primes. If you use only Fuji, get the ...
  • This is a Leica forum but I would not recommend the Leica r for film shooting. I would suggest the Olympus OM system. The lenses are just as good but they are more compact and cheaper. Just try ...
  • Looking at your Nikkor collection I think, should you wish so, get their counterparts in Fuji world. For the 24/1.4 Nikkor there is the 16/1.4 Fuji, for the 35/1.4 Nikkor there is the 23/1.4 Fuji ...
  • The 16/1.4 is a wonderful lens with two drawbacks (svantaggi), secondo me. It is big and it is expensive. If you can afford it and if you are willing to put up with the weight, close to 400 grams, ...
  • Have you considered the XA 3. 24 mp and electronic shutter. What is not to like?
  • Replied in 50mm upgrade
    Wow! The prices you quote are excessive, to say the least. You already have the 35/1.4 m summilux asph. Pair it with the 50/1.4 m lux and if Sony makes a camera you really want to have and use you ...

    Six grand Canadian for the f1 Noctilux sounds like a rip off. If you look hard enough you may be able to find the 0.95 version for this price. A friend of mine got a mint copy in France for 6000 ...
  • Replied in 50mm upgrade
    You may try to find the Canadian Noctilux f1. They can be had for relatively (considering) reasonable prices but make sure they are well kept mechanically, especially the diaphragm. These lenses ...

    Here is the pentax adapter https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1103375-REG/novoflex_let_pent_lens_mount_adapter.html
  • Replied in 50mm upgrade
    I don't know what sort of adapters are available. But I would suggest, as long as you don't mind the weight and manual focusing, giving the Sigma 50/1.4 art a try. It weighs appr. 800 grams but ...
  • Wonderful news! I never knew this was doable with the very short flange distance. It may not be the best ever focal reducer but they will get better with time. I myself have quite e few m lenses ...
  • Spot on. Perhaps you ought to pack a spare battery. London is one of the greatest cities on earth, the Brexit lunacy notwithstanding, and you will want to take loads of pictures. To say that the ...
