The wonderful Nokton 40mm f/1.4 gets much well deserved attention. But there is a smaller 40mm lens available only for E Mount, the Heliar 40mm f/2.8. This is an odd lens in several ways, the first being its requirement of the M mount close focus adapter for focusing. I have been so impressed with michaelj's beautiful work with the Nokton 40mm that I have decided to begin using my little Heliar 40mm more and sharing images from it. These are from the front garden this morning, both at f/2.8 with a little cropping of some extraneous stuff.
