Hi,

this is my first gallery post here, I'm sure I'm going to like it here Very Happy

Yesterday, very grey day in Brussels, but I still went for a walk in the wetlands and the forest.

Here's some shots with my G1 and a brandnew Cosmicar/Pentax 25/1.4 c-mount lens. All shots wide open.

The lens gives a vintage look on the pics, that I further accentuated by the PP in PSP Photo X2

Looking forward to your comments,
Rafael

Thanks for your comment !
A Falcon is a version of the well known Samyang 85/1.4.
I have it in a Nikon mount, and I am very happy with it.

Usually I dislike pics from c-mount lenses, but yours are really beautiful. Very dreamy like, unlike the usual funky/swirly look from c-mount.

thanks rafael, i guess i should just assume that any 85/1.4 is a samyang regardless of name! Very Happy

Excellent results - impressive!

(I took the liberty to move it to the cine-lens subsection)

They look strangely familiar Wink - saw some of them over on getdpi.com Very nice pictures. I don't remember my Pentax having that 'cine' look, but I also didn't use it very much. The pictures I saw from that lens were generally really nice, it's just a touch too small for my XL hands.
