    I got some money as Christmas gift. Used it to buy some lenses (this, CZ 135mm/2.8 and Panagor 500mm/8 Reflex). Unfortunately it is pretty dark outside so I made just one test shot, more to follow in a couple of months. I am impressed already :).


    Workmate, flash with bouncing card (made from extruded polystyrene) and aperture 5.6.

    100% crop from above.

    No sharpening and contrast as default.

    One portrait more, ISO 800 and wide open.


    and detail as 100% crop

    Again no sharpening or noise removal. Contrast as standard in Raw Therapee.

    I think that I am not going to need better 50mm lens. Faster of course ... .
