    Thank you for the kind words Mellow.
    It's actually back-focused a bit. Another good thing about MF lenses is that when it back-focuses I know exactly which part of the system is at fault :smile: That was made with Konica 57/1.4 with the cam lifted over my head.

    I echo the above peeps, #2 for moi as well. I do suggest you think about a tighter crop. As people is the theme of #2, a crop from the top down to where the shadow and sunlight meet, (the upper 15% or so), would make this excellant photo maybe a bit stronger.

    I really like #2 as well.
    I'm new to this format, and so new that I'm still awaiting arrival of my unit.
    I'm looking forward to using some old lenses on it.
    Would you mind elaborating on your statement here - back-focusing MF lenses & which part of the system is at fault - for a noob that wants to learn?

    thanks much

    Well, you probably know that no AF system is perfect which sometimes leads to AF errors, including back-focus, caused by an improper lens calibration or improper body calibration or, maybe, insufficient AF precision or simply misfocus. However if MF lens back-focused (like in this case) the part of the system that caused it is, clearly, me :smile: so no guessing is involved :thumbup:.

    Sounds like a good idea. Thank you very much. Did you have something like this in mind? It does look a bit stronger imho.

    There you go ... maybe even a bit more, down to the shadow line.
