Rich, love the composition, the line running down to he left gives it a “so sad” look

This is a 50mm at f2.8, but I can’t remember the actual lens

Stephan, I really like the look of the second portrait you posted -- which version of the 50mm summicron did you use? An older one?

Hey, that's a coincidence, I just saw this picture on flickr 10 minutes ago ! And a very nice shot it is too, nice soft tones.

Thanks, it's actually the SLR canadian version with built-in hood, I think that makes it 2nd or 3rd generation ? Not sure about that.

Some really excellent images in this thread. Makes me want to talk my wife into posing for a while (not easy).

Oh thanks, Rich...they are courtesy of whatever the kids at CVS cook up. I end up removing dust and scratches though.

Edit: And I'll just add, that, as this picture proves with the scalping of the head there, parallax error is a heartbreak (for me at least, maybe if I were better at it), and I don't use this lens on my screwmounts anymore.

Here are my 2 cents:

Bessa R + Jupiter 8 50mm

http://www.flickr.com/photos/ondrej_p/241544947/

And if you forgive me, here is one taken with an Olympus SLR. I just love this shot, and the more I look at it, the more I love it. And I also love her
Olympus OM 2000 + Zuiko 50mm f/1.8

This one is one of my favorites taken with the MP/35 Summilux @ 1.4 on... heck I can't remember the film without looking at my gallery or the print file and I am too lazy to go do either.

Really I could be doing this for a while. Just click on the gallery link in my signature.

Jazz vocalist Camille Metoyer Moten, shot about three hours ago with a 50/1.5 Nokton on an Epson R-D 1; 1/220 sec. @ f/1.5, ISO 1600. Not sure this really qualifies as a portrait, though.

Lots of nice pictures in this thread.

Here's one from a roll that I developped yesterday. The film is Efke 25, shot with my Fujica G690 with 180/5.6 lens wide open at 1/15.



Cheers,

Abbazz

Just remembered I had these, both are my wife's sister. Actually, I'm pretty sure I've posted both on RFF before, but I like them anyway!

First, M2, J8 wide open (I think), Neopan 400, Xtol:


Second, Bronica SQ-A, 80mm PS, Neopan 400 @ 640, Diafine:

This one has a great feeling to it Joe. Nice one.

BTW how are you finding your VC 40/1.4? and did you eventually sell off your Canon 50/1.2?

Nice shot Abbazz i used to have this lens - it's one serious piece of glass especially if you have a lens hood attached! Beautiful portrait lens.

thanks simon.

i sold both of those lenses. the canon went back to taffer who had sold it me and the 40 was lost in a purge. i'm 'down' to 5 lenses and 2 bodies and feel mush better and lighter for it.
