review:




The Russian clon of CZ Sonnar 85/2 !


Lens soft and it is very good for portraits!

Diaphragm always the round (many-petaled)!

Beautiful drawing and soft plastic bohe!

I used old "white" version ($20):

Nice set of portraits!

I love the pose in #6 - wow what a silhouette of perfect physical fitness, it will make most women become green of envy - and the background works great with it

I also love the informality of #4, but I think it would work better in black & white (the colour cast is a bit on the heavy side)

Thanks.

Again, some kind of reconfirmation. You can get a soft focus effect and nice bokeh as long as you keep away any highlight in the ooF area.

I found this lens very difficult to use on the Oly 300 without focus confirmation. I will try it out again on my new 40D with focus confirm when the weather allows and hope I can do half as well as these shots! Looks like an almost ideal lens for portraits. Good point Carsten and I shall keep that in mind.

great portraits. You really were able to capture some wonderful expressions from your models.

On a little side-note...I'm not quite sure if you should be using those pictures of the lenses themselves. They are from the m42 lens list site and unless you are Denis Oliver (and I will be very embarrassed if you are) or have gotten permission...than it is copyright infringement. It just might become an issue for the administrators of different sites and I would hate to see that happen.

Thanks

Some cracking pics and some lovely models. The focus is a bit front-ish on the first brunette's head shot, giving a sharp tip of the nose and slightly oof eyes.

I'm very happy to see those photos here, because it shows how usable my favourite lens is for portraits. They are fantastic, thanks for sharing.

It agree About BW #4, but here I show photo "As shot", only resize!

Now I Always make photo with a dandelion (AF/IS emulator for OLYMPUS)!



AF-confirm with manual lens Works very precisely.

I want to buy CZ Sonnar 85/2 ($100), it more sharp than Jupiter-9, but I love my soft Jupiter-9 Wink
