I really want to use this lens for portraits, but that hasn't happened yet. In the meantime here are the -not so interesting I think- first results.

Most of these were shot wide open, except no. 3 (f/5.6).

2.


3.


4.

wide open at 1.5? wow. also like how the light shines off the street lamp tops in 3. cant wait to see portraits. ive really been lusting a fast 85, just too expensive....

Thanks, yes, wide open!

A fast 85 too expensive? Maybe, but at the moment I have about 15 different 70-90mm lenses faster than f/2. And I like each one of them... Smile

i just now did a search on ebay for 85mm 1.4 (or 1.5) any mount, under $250. result 0! actually, there were 2 nikons just getting started around $200, will end up much higher. as opposed to my jupiter 85/2.0 that i got for under $100!

Nice results as ever! I particularly like the composition of number 3.

Can't wait to see some portraits Smile

I think the Samyang 85mm 1.4 sells new for approximately that price.

I have now looked in a folder of various downloaded pix and found shots of the following lenses that Peter had at least at one time. But it still does not add up to 15. (He said he only borrowed a SMC Pentax-A* 1/1.4 85m for making comparisons so I do not count that one. Nor do I count the SMC M 85 f2 since 2 is not <f2. )

Enna Ennalyt 85mm f/1.5
Accura Supertel TC 1:1.9 f=85mm preset T-mount.
80mm f/1.8 Komura
75mm f/1.5 Biotar
85mm f/1.5 Cyclop (Helios-40 innards)
Canon FD 85mm f/1.2 S.S.C. Aspherical

Gentlemen!

I do have the SMC-M 85/2 on my list; I should have said <= f/2 Wink

Let's see what I currently have in the 70-90mm range, faster than or equal to f/2:

01. Asahi-Kogaku Takumar 83mm f/1.9
02. Asahi Super-Takumar 85mm f/1.9
03. Asahi S-M-C Takumar 85mm f/1.8
04. SMC Pentax-FA 77mm f/1.8 Limited
05. Cyclop 85/1.5 (Helios-40 innards)
06. Sankyo Kohki Komura 80mm f/1.8
07. Sankyo Kohki Komura 85mm f/1.4
08. Accura Supertel Tc 1:1.9 f=85mm
09. Jupiter-9 2/85
10. Meyer Grlitz Primoplan 7,5cm 1:1.9
11. Carl Zeiss Jena 75mm f/1.5 Biotar
12. Carl Zeiss Jena 80mm f/1.8 Pancolar
13. Canon 85mm f/1.8 S.S.C.
14. Canon 85mm f/1.2 S.S.C. Aspherical
15. Enna Mnchen Ennalyt 85mm f/1.5

That's about it. I'm still missing the SMC Pentax-A* 85mm f/1.4 and SMC Pentax-FA* 85mm f/1.4 (even though I'm a Pentax man!) but that's because these are always overpriced when compared to other fast lenses (for no other reasons than the brand name). The A* 85/1.4 shouldn't be worth more than a new Zeiss ZK 85/1.4 but unfortunately it does... So I search a little bit more for examples with good prices Twisted Evil

Apart from the Canons, all lenses fit to my Pentax cameras. Maybe I will extend my search to other mounts now and include at least one of each brand (Nikon, Olympus, Konica, Zeiss, Leica, etc) if the lens fits to my criteria (so again: between 70 and 90mm, with a speed of f/2 or faster, mountable to a DSLR).

Thanks Klaus, you can be sure I will use the lens more... Just keep an eye on this forum. Wink

BTW, my collection does not come even close to yours. So it's me who is taking his hat off and bowing to the master Cool
