Today i went to the forest with the 50mm 1.8D mounted. I saw a picture of a forummember @ NCN wich gave me inspiration. I wanted Bokeh and a B&W maybe a bit tinted. Above one of the results. More on Flickr. Shot info: iso 200 - f1.8 - 1/400 - 50mm
On the NCN forum we became curious about the wide open performance of the Vivitar 70-150 1:3.8 wich at least 2 of us use. Both a Kiron made version. After he went out and shot wide open he was a bit disappointed, but seems to be turning a bit after more testing. So i tried again today and was surprised. Sure @ f8 it is way sharper but images are good after a bit of extra sharpening, but not that much after all. Above is one of today! Judge for yourself. Shot Info: iso 400 - f3.8 - 1/320 - 150mm
At the moment the Vivitar 75-205 1:3.8 is my favourite lens. At 205mm @ f8 it is sharp and gives a good soft bokeh and almost macro. I love it!! Enjoy these 2 pictures! Both were taken in my loves garden at 5 'o' clock midday with a bit of sun on 29th of april. Shot info: Both iso 200 - f8 - 205mm - above 1/250 beneath 1/320.
