02 September 2017

A few days ago, I did my first ever outdoor selfie with this lens at f/1.8, it was a bit glowing and I thought it won't do justice for this lens and will have to re-do it another day. The outdoor selfie/portrait shots.

Naturally, people like to do portraiture with this lens at f/2 because it's a bit sharper than f/1.8 and does not glow. That's why I have experimented to permanently fix the lens at f/2. (The spring mechanisms inside the lens were already broken when I bought it, so I have to decide which f-stop to fix the lens.)

These select shots were very beautiful, perfect from the camera once I manually got the settings. It's actually a very sharp lens considering it's only single coated from 1965! Highly unusual from the vintage lenses I've used before.

Did you know? This lens was made by TOKINA!
