    Thanks for showing us Robert. I'm very interested in the Kogaku Nikkor lenses and the 85mm certainly looks very sharp. How far approximately were you from the dragonfly? And what f stop did you use in these particular images?

    Ta,

  2. Thank you.
    I was about 5 feet away and shot at f 5.6 and f 8
    It seems that 3 ft is the minimun distance for this lens when used on the E-PL2

    Very nice shots! I have a Nikkor 50mm 1.4 of the same era, great glass!

    Hi. I happen to have the same lens, but the H.C. version. I adore it. I hope you don't mind I post a few samples. I like the 3D quality that this lens renders.
    This one is shot with an E-PL5

    About 10 years ago, I had excactly your version of the lens, and I used it on a Canon EOS (rebel) 350D :)
