Konica Hexanon 50/1,4

I heard that Konica has nice glass. I found one, cheap. Well maybe not cheap because it's very beaten body. I guess my Ugliest body I ever have. But glass looks fine, only little seed of fungus.
There's Vivitar filter attached and cannot be detached.
This video taken with this lens & Sony NEX5



DOF is so thin in openwide, and soft focus
1 step down, it's sharp

Voigtlander APo Lanthar
Leitz Elmar
This is not scientific test, just quick test for my new Voigtlander APO LANTHAR 90mm f/3.5 MC Leica 39 screw mount compared to my  Leitz Elmar 90/4 Leica M mount. Both has silver body, beautiful.
Voigt condition is like new body & glass, while Leitz's body like new too but glass has cleaning mark ( due to my shots this isn't affect image quality ).
The elmar has longer body than lanthar
Lanthar's body is fatter
Lanthar has 10 blades
Elmar 15 blades
aperture 3,5 -22 of lanthar
aperture 4-32 of elmar
lanthar is MC, elmar no coating sign

Voigtlander APO LANTHAR 90mm f/3.5 MC LTM silver

APO refers to a type of lens construction that reduces color fringing, generally APO lenses are more expensie than other lenses in same type. Lanthar as far as I know refers to Lanthanum material which being used to build this lens.

I'm impressed by it capability to control contrast between bright sun area and shadow area in this picture

back light? No problem :D

now let's see how it detail for portrait
