Stan, Orio, and Manual: There are some nice images coming up here,
and all of these are really fine. Also, I see what Orio meant about bokeh
on the Sonnar. Creamy!

Farside, ANOTHER cracking fine image. Wow, the Kiron is a clean imaging lens. GREAT shot!

Cheers, Larry.
The ones either side of this were the same shot, but just didn't work - the bloke at the back had his face hidden but more of his body showing, so it looked odd.
That Kiron coped well with a very bright day, shooting into the sun a lot of the time.

Strolling along the beach at sunset. Unknown beach stroller, southern California beach, circa 1986. Canon F-1, FL 19mm f/3.5, Fujichrome 100, exposure unrecorded.

Michael, gotta love the vignetting from the old school gear! In this case, it
works very well. Nice colors from the Fujichrome 100.

Actually, Laurence, that isn't vignetting. That 19mm didn't vignette at all. The photo was taken long enough after sunset that the portion of the sky that was still illuminated had shrunk a lot such that it was a noticeable arc, and the 19mm lens was able to reach almost to the edges of the field of illumination, thus exaggerating it. I suspect I exaggerated the effect even more by tipping the nose of the camera downward slightly, thus causing the verticals (if there had happened to be any) to bend inward. The dark blue areas in the corners are still transparent, which I proved to myself earlier as I was removing dust splotches from the image. Yup, dust spots were visible all the way to the corners at high zoom ratios.

Here's another post-sunset beach photo I took with a Yashica Mat 124G. Its normal lens doesn't reach almost to the edges of the field of illumination the way the 19mm does, but the image none the less still shows the curvature to the field in the western sky.

I see, and that makes sense Michael. It's an astonishing effect, and now
that I think about it, the same effect takes place on the beaches that
I visit, especially on a clear summer evening during the twilight glow
after sunset.

The Yashica Mat image is splendid, just a really fine image.

You have a treasure in your Konica lenses, Attila. Now that they can adapt
with a digital camera, you are bringing out the beauty and clarity of these
fine, somewhat forgotten, lenses.

Yes, exactly this was my goal with them open people eyes , Konica was first Japanese manufacturer and always made top lenses , some of them was ridiculously expensive it's time. Now we have a great opportunity to get them and use them.

Hey Farside, those old pieces of farm machinery are huge brutes, by the looks of 'em. I suppose their owners must drive them to this fair? Do they come from very far away?

So far as I've seen, they're mostly transported on low-loaders, but I've also seen a couple of them on the road heading for a vintage show, so it's not impossible for them to get there under their own steam - expensive and tedious journey iwt. 4mph and a bag of coal every couple of miles.
