I tried my luck in some indoor shots with my 16mm (real 16mm FF)at Ontario Museum. Not possible as the film is really low iso at 100 (Reala).
So I got back to my K100d and here they are





















I am to get two rolls of film developed and can't wait to see the result Tuesday

I find these shots to be very sharp and with great detail even in this resize for posting. Must look much better without the resize. Slightly fishy look in some but not distracting at all in viewing the overall picture.

Very nice.

Thanks for your nice comment on my tourist-like shots. In fact the first one is the only one I have defished. There was some people on the left staircase landing on the first pict. I could have cropped them out. Anyway I defished them out . That is about it.

Daniel, Toronto

As usual, spectacular. You have such incredible pictures with that lens. Out of curiosity, what's the f stop wide open?

These shots show what the Zenitar can do. I must play with mine a bit more, as I don't seem to get the same results you do.

Harriet & Darren,

Thanks for looking. The lens reaches F2.8 wide open. It is ok but F3.5 is sharp. And I always step down to increase the already huge DoF which creates the fun factor.

Like the first one at F5.6 (the f number is not there at the exif because it is a strictly manual lens)
http://www.pbase.com/danieltong/image/76173496/original , it has enormous DoF. This is the one I like most. The rest are almost tourist shots.
Up to now I still favour the Fisheye with the crop factor which already gives me a FoV of 84 degree - very impressive as shown. In respect of full fisheye (180 degree) , it seems that after a little while you get tired of the distortion.
But to get that in film (FF) as an inexpensive exercise is fun/educational

Daniel

Daniel, you do some really great things with that lens. The first shot is very unique, it took a moment for my eye to orient itself and gain perspective. Thanks for sharing it.
