    Got the new Rokinon 50mm/1.2 which has relieved me of the lust I have for the PL 42.5/1.2!

    First shots today (wide open) using the GX8.

    I think this one was at f/2.

    Added some extension tubes for close up work. Windy so tough to nail focus.

    10mm Ext, f/1.2, missed focus a little, see sharp bit near 2 o'clock.

    26mm Ext tube, f/1.2, slight crop. Leaf is about the size of my little finger's fingernail

    I'm so far behind on the forums.
    Great work here, even mesmerizing cat eyes.
    I don't know when I've seen creamier bokeh.
    You're missing nothing over the Nocticron.

    Just AF and ois if not using Olympus body. Images look fantastic! It's kind of like a modern version of the 50 1.4 super takumar.

    I hope it's a lot better than the Tak 50!

    I'm really pleased with it. There are few reviews of the lens online, but I remember reading one that had some resolution charts and this thing is excellent. There is some minor color fringing in certain conditions that is easily removed in Lr. I'll have more pics posted later. I've just discovered the P35-100/2.8 becomes a wonderful flower set-up when used with a 10mm Kenko Auto Extension Tube, auto focus and image stabilization work well!. I'm uploading some examples in the P35-100/2.8 gallery.

    Still editing but wanted to post this one. Bike was hanging from the ceiling in an antique mall. Shot wide open at 1.2, but love the edit on this.

    Shot at f/8 I think. Nine bladed aperture = 18 rays.

    These shots were from an Antique mall, and were in glass cases. Almost all of the shots taken here were at f/1.2.

    These were not in a case.

    I added grain to this because the felt in the Uke case that is in focus looks like noise.

    These were edited for soft appearance, she hates to have her pic taken. Still at f/1.2.

    nice shots , seems sharp wide open,, and very nice bokeh, i've had my eye on this lens as well... as a cheaper alternative to the 42.5 f1.2 , even used its twice the cost of this lens

    Only had time for a quick test tonight, but it's very sharp right from f1.2. I need to bone up on my manual focus skills, though!

    @ f1.2:

    P1200755.jpg


    Lens for scale. It's a hair bigger than the 75mm. The 50mm on the OM adapter is the 50mm f1.8, which is smaller than most 50s. (pic not taken with the 50mm f1.2, obviously). I didn't show the hood, but it's quite large, so I doubt I will use it.
