Legacy lenses give very pleasing renditions I think :-). Not heard of the Petri before

I think Petri lenses are rebranded Japanese ones. This one is fast and sharp.

Oh OK - was that at f/2 or wider?

I have a couple of Minolta MD - 50 f/1.7 which I prefer at f/4, and a 58 MD f/1.2 (I think).

Enjoy playing wide open but definitely sharper at about f/4 or so.

I guess the boat photo was @f11, but f2 is sharp too.

Oops wasn't expecting to see f stop so didn't look :-).

I do enjoy the few legacy lenses that I have. I wish i were in the Northern hemisphere in terms of picking them up for a good price

Most of my lenses I got them at flea markets. Soviet lenses are also very good. But you will mainly use MF lenses for their special characteristics, AF lenses are way more convenient.

I am on NZ and there doesn't seem to be many available, and when they are, price can be a barrier. I am luck in that someone gifted me a Monolta camera with 50mm f/1.7. It has become one fo my favourite lenses. I wish I had a mate in Russia and nearby places, as people pick them up for almost nothing :-)

Focus peaking on Canon M5 and Pana G9 makes manual lenses so usable.

Bought a Pentacon 135mm f2.8, and can't wait to get my hands on it. I need to source a good value M42 adaptor with AF confirm. Any recommendations?

Just used to use cheap ebay ones back in my Canon days.

Thanks, that's what I'll likely end up doing. Pretty sure I need the one without the lip for this lens because there is no pin, and the selection is pretty limited.

Edited to add - I love your photos! I've enjoyed them as I've researched different MF lenses recently.

I only have a 35mm lens for my Fuji right now, but needed something a bit longer to shoot a concert. These were shot with the Zeiss 50mm f1.4. Wasn't a fun experience trying to focus that on moving subjects, but a few came out good.
