You're fine with a crop camera since its mirror is smaller. I use my Takumars with my Sigma SD15.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Mine just arrived yesterday. The cosmetics are pristine and so are the mechanics! Here's a picture i took of it and a picture I took with it.

Hope it's ok I bump this. But, is there a way to make this work without bumping the mirror on the 5D II? Is there grinding involved? Or is it even possible to make it work at all without hitting?

Ugh I had messaged someone on craigslist before I found out the mirror hits the lens. They still have it. Waiting for a price. What is considered a good price? a steal price? Too high? Also, it comes with a Pentax Spotmatic body.

Playing around with this lens today. Was disappointed that the MFD was 45cm, as I was trying to get some flower close-ups, but soon realized that is the same as the Canon 50L, Canon 50 1.4, and Canon 50 1.8.

f/1.8, I think:

At f/1.4 the images got softer than I liked. f/1.8 is about the limit, at least for near-field stuff.

IQ is good, but comparing to my Canon 28mm 1.8, I think the 28 1.8 has better color/contrast (yeah, not the same FL, so harder to judge).

I guess I should invest in a 50mm 1.4 just to see...

I just picked up a copy of this awesome lens (along with a Helios 44-2) for a great deal on eBay. Snapped these this morning while walking with my wife:
