pages to go before I sleep…

First photo from my new-old πŸ˜€ Helios M44-5 f/2 58mm screw mount manual lens.. I got it from Ebay, cheap. And results of the lens are pretty good for starters. Though the coating on some glasses is gone but I am not sure what would be the effect of this on photos.. but there only one way to find out.. and I will soon.

Please let me know if anyone else has such a lens and please share some tips/experiences.

  1. Jokes apart, I like the angle u framed in and Ofcourse the DOF is really small. But that lent it a nice perspective.

    • Thank you dear. And DOF was unexpected actually. I had no idea it would be THAT small. As I had no DOF preview function to use and this is my first experience with this old manual lens. πŸ™‚

      • Well, welcome to manual focusing. I am sure you will enjoy as much as i do πŸ™‚

        Like this pic a lot… keep them coming πŸ™‚
