Film Fridays: Adapted Nikkor-S 35mm f/2.8 Sample Images

A sixty year old lens on a six month old camera? Why the hell not. I mean I get it – I love new gear as much as the next photographer – but there’s something inimitable about old optics.

Despite some obvious barrel distortion and vignetting (both of which in my opinion contribute to the analogue look), this lens can put out sharp images…not too bad for a $20 find. This is generally (not always) the case for manual focus lenses, if you have the patience.

The only time I use Live View is when focusing manual focus lenses – I’ve found they don’t always focus well through the viewfinder. As much as I dislike it, when using Live View what you see is what you get – it’s very hard to get your focus wrong if you take an extra second to micro-adjust.

Next week, some sample photos from my latest $15 find, a Super-Lentar 35mm f/2.8. It’s ridiculously sharp!
