Lens Samples

The rendering of the Quinon 1.9/55 is beautiful. The bokeh in the second image might be a bit harsh, but the subject is tack-sharp. The third has a filmic quality.

And here are a couple from the Pentacon 1.8/50. These have more of a green cast, compared to the Quinon.

Here’s the Cassarit 2.8/50, maybe a bit more contrasty than the Quinon. The second image is using the macro tube.

And finally, a few from the Canon 1.4/50 FD—another great performer. The magic hour ambiance doesn’t hurt either. The gold glow on the statues are from a reflector I brought along.
