spring in hesse, a bit north of frankfurt.

one more walk with the cyclop 1.5/85mm lens, mounted on a digital camera, this afternoon; this time with an adapter that allows for autofocus confirm - and, after some fiddling i decided to try magic lantern’s trap focus, which struck me as pretty impressive (so far i haven’t tried focus peaking).

it was great fun to get to know this lens a little better. it’s definitely not incredibly sharp, but then again, it’s always at f/1.5 … and it seems to get even softer towards the edges. vignettes pretty damn heavily, too.

apart from the properties of the lens, i’m not very used to focusing manually, so that’s a challenge. the very shallow plane of focus is, however, a lot of fun.

in conclusion: i’m looking forward to more experimentation :)
