The FOTGA adapter arrived Friday and with a busy weekend I haven't had much time to play with it.
Infinity focus works.
Here is the head of the pack in our household:
Serenar 50mm, f/1.8, 1/60, ISO 3200
This image is definitely not as sharp in the center as the 85mm f/1.2 at f/1.8 but for a 60 year-old lens and Canon's first attempt at a fast fifty it's not too bad. Definitely a more solid lens than the current 50 f/1.8!
Here is the obligatory Duck Shot. This mallard was sitting on the tree in the foreground that had been felled by a beaver.
Serenar 35mm f/2.8 at f/8, ISO 100, 1/160
Images from this lens appear soft but I have not had an opportunity to try it on a tripod.
There is some interesting flare from this lens and the contrast is not nearly as good as current lenses.
Serenar 35mm f/2.8 at f/5.6 set for hyperfocal distance ISO 100, 1/1000 and shot from the hip.
Though the lens appears to be soft it has a somewhat dreamy characteristic.
Focusing wide open using the 10x zoom then setting the aperture to the desired value seems to work well. I haven't loaded Magic Lantern yet and am curious to see how well the focus peaking works.
And the camera looks sweet with the lens and universal finder on it.
