It has been a while.
Lavender.
Balcony.
Into the sun.

Ahh, now this is even more special Jakov!

Lovely stuff indeed :-)

Seems the lens is rather hard to find on the used market at the moment though :(

John, super thanks!

Snoogly, thanks to you too. I bought this lens from one of our members, Brent Elliot, for about $40.
Erik, modified the lens to F-mount. (what a guy)
Birna told me it was better suited for C-mount because of the smaller distance between the rear element and the sensor. For the same reason I suspect it is better suited for Z-mount, too.
All I need to do now is buy a Z-fc (and get that guy to modify it again)
As it is now, I can barely get anything sharp. But that doesn't mean that i don't have fun with it.

Thank you, Dogman!

You rule in the ethereal realm, dear Jakov !

Sharpness is overrated  8)

This builds up to be a very nice study of lavender.

You make that lens sing Jakov, with flavor and diversity.

  Thanks for sharing it!
