Zeiss Tessar 45mm f/2.8
@ Rafael, yes I was around at the time. Have been busy
@ Keith, I am not sure I can recommend this philosopher. Didn't do any rereading on it. The title was good because everybody was looking for miracles at the time
@Tesselator, I like nr3 from your serie, the fairytale atmosphere.
Canon FD 50mm f1.4 SSC
Super Takumar 50mm F/1.4
Canon FD 200mm F/4.0
Nikkor 50mm F/1.4
I guess I'll do one more.

Lovely shot, Raf. The colours and and the bokeh are splendid.

Thanks for your comment, Keith !
Your "tree steps to heaven" intrigues me !
You've taken this shot with a "tilt adapter".
I didn't know these exist in the first place, but just saw on Ebay that Kipon offers them even for Nikon F-mount.
Is yours from Kipon, Keith ?
Could you share your impressions about this adapter, specifically, does it focus to infinity ? (if you think it's necessary, in a separate topic ?)
Since Keith might still be snoring in Canada, here is the link of the italian Tilt adapter we both have, I think. It exists in different mounts. So you can even use it as a regular adapter.
I've checked that site, but it says "product not available".
I have found that Kipon manufacturer/supplier offering some adapters on Ebay
Maybe, I'll just order one from here, although the timing is bad with very long delivery times from Asia to Europe due to the Holiday Season :-((
Have a nice day,
The Kipon looks interesting, but from what I see it has 8 degrees of tilt and Adriano's has 30 degrees
It's worth calling Adriano or e-mailing as sometimes his web site may not represent the true situation.
I use the adapter mainly with my Pentax 50/1.4 M42 lens. I seem to be able to get beyond infinity - which yields two kinds of bokeh. There is a discussion on this (check Post # 1301 with the dog picture)
There are a few people on this forum that use the Italian adapter and are very pleased with it.
Good morning, thus, Keith !
Thanks for the info, I'll drop Adriano an e-mail and see what comes out.
8° instead of 30° is a real big difference.
this one is shot with the G1 and a Nikkor 24/2.0 lens, coupled with a Cokin "Dream" filter
One from today on my walk to the studio.
A new lens found its way to La Hulpe
A Kodak Retina Tele-Xenar 135/4 from Schneider Kreuznach in DKL mount, for which I found a µ4/3 adapter in the UK.
So, I'm glad to present to you a first bokeh shot with this lens on my G1
I'll update my FLAD project as soon as the weather allows for some more creative shots
Have a nice day,
I love the African sculpures, Raf

Hey, pride-points man!
Please tell me more - I've been to Japan many times, but I don't read or speak the language
Now we have to figure out if Tessellator is Dan Brown in disguise?

Hi, Dan, great shot !
In our little village, we are facing the second wave of snow for this winter, and we are only 17/12 today.
Here's a moody shot from light night, with the G1 and a Nikkor 24/2.0 with the "Dream #3" filter
There is so much going on in my studio that it is a dusty mess at the moment.
We are building a balcony in the space and I am preparing for an exhibition.
But I saw it as an opportunity to photograph some dusty stilllifes without moving a thing with my new $ 18,- Aus Jena (Zeiss) Pancolar 50/2 from Ebay in the States. It has got an aperture ring that does not move so I can only shoot it wide open. Time to get the screwdriver out!
Excuse me for the amount but I like it as a serie for the atmosphere and what that lens does.
And one more, the best one actually, with that same lens shot by my Canadian relative Graig Hulton at a lovely dinner.
PS I'll keep quiet for a while now
I absolutely love your "strak in de lak".
I've been running around with my Retina Tele-Xenar all morning
This is the shot I loike most :
For 49.00 Euro, I think the lens is just excellent.
A drawback, however, the minimum focus distance is 4m. Not really good for a FLAD
C U soon,
I would say it is a first for me to use it for such a shot and a couple I tried out earlier in that shoot didn't come anywhere near making the grade. I would probably class getting a great bokeh shot out of the 9-18mm as a struggle.
Normally, I would have had my Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 with me but I wanted to pack something smaller and wider in the bag for that day.
Great stuff guys!!
