Having no experience but knowing what it takes to focus super-fast lens so perfect, when and where no other lens can do it, all I can think of to say is to repeat

Thank you!, 1.2 is very hard in model shooting, need very experienced model who not move at all and very easy to make tons of crap images due limited DOF.

Nicely done Attila, perfect focussing. I guess it's easier to find a patient model if you promise her a fur coat! Smile

I see lighting from the left side. What did you use?

Smile she did use this fur coat all time in her childhood we did discover it again at their parents house and perfect company for cold days. I did use my usual lighting two flashes two umbrellas.

It's not easy to take eyes from the young lady.
But if if You're powerful enough, take a look at the shape of the lights in background:
The more far we look at the left side the lights are deformed to the left and vice versa.
Caused by vignetting of an ultra fast lens?

But now eyes back to the lady! Wink

Thats part of the charm of the Konica 57mm f1.2. When the lens is wide open, the coupling 'shadows' part of the image circle causing the deformed or clipped out of focus highlights. Much more on the lens here - http://www.buhla.de/Foto/Konica/Objektive/e57_12.html

Been wondering how the lens works as an 85mm. Awesomely evidently Very Happy
