i've been looking high and low for one of these at a decent(cheap) price. i ended up having one given to me for the price of postage..
3 shots from about 7-8', wide open at f2.8, 28mm, 50mm, 85mm.
PP consisted of ben's technique made into an action at 30% opacity.
100% crops, no resize, shot jpg6***

I am not sure of the aperture setting. It is a screw mount lens so there is no recording of aperture details.


I just wanted to shoot something after it arrived in the post and teh gnome seemded handy.

It was probably stopped down a bit as this was in summer.


The coincidence of test subjects for similar lens struck me as worth noting.

Roy

they make marvellous models don't they?

Never complain, never move and always available.

Of course they work cheap too :?
