  1. Lovely kids and great bokeh from this classic lens. Well done!

  2. Had this lens also 😉 Really good on russian film cameras 😉

  3. Thanks for stopping by and liking my post. I really like your stuff too. I have been curious about the Fuji camera.

    Doc,

    Beautiful portraits! I think I prefer the rendering in B&W; the contrast appears to be on the lower side, and seems to allow you some latitude for image adjustment.

    I hope and your family are well.

    Warmest regards,
    -M.

      Thanks. In my opinion these old lenses pair up quite nicely with Fuji X-E1. Another lens I like very much is Pentacon 50mm. It gives the classic Zeisss 3D pop very easily. I may shoot with it and post a short review. Just need my nephews and nieces to model.
