    I've had my EPL1 since January and here are a couple. These were taken with the kit lens, Rokkor 50mm f1.7 or a Zykkor (anyone know about this?) 28mm f2.8 macro.

    I like no 1. There is something about the contrast between the sun and the skies and the rugged wet waggons.
    I general the photos are technically very good, but be aware – am only a novice.

  3. Your mysterious Zykkor looks like it's actually pretty good!

    I had a zyykkor(sp?). A cheap fisheye or WA adaptor made in the 80s... I use it as a fisheye with a step-down filter (its 49mm filter thread) on my 14mm lumix. I have no other information other than that unfortunately. Seems to be medium quality stuff made in japan.

    I like the composition on the last pic of the GT40 (with the Zykkor), but I feel like a little less DOF would be nice. I'd like the trees in the background to be less prominent.

    The rose is beautiful and creamy, but again, the background (particularly the bud behind the rose) intrudes a bit.

    Overall, these are nice. Keep developing your eye.

    in the 80s, there seemed to be an unending invasion of clones, lots of 'nars', 'inons', 'kors' to cash in on the Planars, Fujinons, Nikkors, Rokkors of that era. It seems like 28/2.8, 35/2.8, 50/1.7, 135/2.8 were the most popular, and they all seemed to be the same. The lens formula was pretty well the same, the only real variables were quality control, and coatings. In short, unless it's damaged, they were all reasonably good.

    I agree less DOF would be nice of the GT. Unfortunately I was shooting in bright sunlight and was forced into higher apertures. I could have went to a lower f stop but I was so hyped on shooting the car I completely forgot about getting more DOF :rofl:.

    Do you think it's a Rokkor imitation or could it be something different? I know they made them in Canon/Nikon mounts too. I appreciate the information though.

    You probably can't tell a Rokkor 28/2.8, from a Canon or Nikkor.
