    1st Use Of A Lens In 13 years.

    13 years ago I bought a 90mm Elmarit-M, No. 11807. At the time, a buddy and I were docents at the AZ-Sonora Desert Museum. In our off time we would prowl the grounds with me taking happy snaps of people, and various ongoing interpretations with my M6 while my bud did the intense stuff with an R6. He upped and moved to Montana and I lost interest in photography. The lens was never mounted!

    So, along comes a rebirth of interest, an M8.2 and the lens finally was mounted and tried. No intention to offer great photographic art, here, merely checking the lens out. This was ISO 1250 and 1/3000 sec. That because the wind was blowing the bougainvillea all over the place so I upped the shutter speed accordingly. Bokeh is smooth; the noise is tolerable…to me at least.

    That is a pleasing and pretty clean ISO1250 shot, well done.
