Konica 135 f2.5 on Nex-7

Konica 135 f2.5 on Nex-7

I took two systems with me on this occasion, the Olympus OM-D mounting the CV 50 f1.5 and the Sony Nex-7 mounting the rather large Konica 135 f2.5. I have a number of the smaller 135 f3.5 lenses and all of them are acceptable and produce some nice images but I wanted to try something faster. I was actually looking for a f2.8 lens but I couldn't find one at a reasonable price so I bought the f2.5 one instead. The prices for these old manual lenses certainly are rising on the market, especially the f2.8 and faster lenses. Try finding a Canon f2 of f2.8 manual focus lens at a relatively reasonable price today. Just impossible in my part of the world.
Anyway, I digress. As you can see, the lens produces some nice images, provided you nail the focus. Although the Nex system has focus peeking, and is the best on the market at the time of this blog post, it is still extremely difficult to nail the focus at these focal lengths. The DOF is really tiny when you are working wide open. But when you get it right, the quality is great.

CV 50 f1.5 on the OM-D

CV 50 f1.5 on the OM-D

I had to take a photograph of this because the wife told me to. It's a s simple as that. For those of you who haven't seen one of these before, it's a floating bbq platform. These guys were just going up and down the river enjoying a bbq. I thought it rather fun (the wife too).
This is the last post about this lens and about the OM-D for awhile. Next comes another new lens, again off ebay for a pittance. It's the Konica 135 f2.5.

Just a couple more posts about this lens. This was taken when the band was having a break so I had plenty of time to concentrate on this set of drums. I just liked the lighting at the time so I took a couple of shots to ensure I got a sharp one. I never take just one shot of anything (except when the camera is on a tripod and the light is fading fast).

Towards evening I got stuck with this band. Moving was not on the cards and I got a seat quite close to the band. I found out why as they started the next song. I had the main loudspeaker right in front of me and, believe me, it was loud. Nothing I could do about it though, it was the only free space in the house. Again, good music.

You can use this lens not only for portrait shots but for all sort of things. What struck me here with this shot of leaves floating down the river was the colour accuracy. The OM-D got this right and the rendition of the lens is wonderful.

There's quite a few bandstands around the river Main during the weekend, but they're so spread out that they don't interfere with each other. I spent around an hour with each band before moving to the next and I continued to do this all afternoon. When evening comes though, doing this is an impossibility because of the crowds. An estimated 3 million people attended during the weekend and moving around is a real problem.

Not only did I have fun taking a boat load of images, the music was pretty good too.

I really enjoyed myself during these bands playing. It gave me time to refine my focusing technique as well as testing how much DOF I get with each stop. As you can imagine they don't move a lot during these performances and it does give you time to test a few thing out.

The following images show what this lens is capable of. I like the rendition it gives and dare I say I can see some "Leica-ish" quality to the images. This is where you can take your time focusing on what you require and just leave it at that. Stop down a couple of stops and as long as the light doesn't change just snap away when you see something interesting.

This image is just to prove that I did get more than one image in focus during the hour that I spent photographing this event. This lens is really made for close up photography and not made to be a landscape lens. More images to come showing what I meant by that statement.
