Refurbishing a Kiev Jupiter 9 85mm f2

kiev-2 kiev-1

Sony a7r + Nokton 35mm f1.2 II

Took my Jupiter 9 apart today and greesed it up. And i got it back together aswell 🙂 Suprisingly small amounts of cursewords and problems! Seems to work fine now, we´ll see how it performs when the ebay adapter arrives for my a7.

Removed a couple of fabric peaces that where counteracting there intended use. Decrease friction. So without the cloth peaces, there is some play but my guess is thats nothing to worry about 😛

First day with Sony Fe 55mm f1.8

3 4 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14As you can probably tell, there is plenty of sharpness. I have read alot of rewievs tough, that says there is no or little CA. i would not agree. there is CA in alot of the pics. The picture of my grandma for example. Look at the crop of her glasses, its tack sharp, but there is CA in there. Aswell as in the crop from the sign, there is little CA around the letters in the sticker.

But contrast and sharpness is great! and the lens is lighter then i expected 🙂 And it looks damn good on the A7r!

The following 2 shots is at same tint and temperature as this one.

Saturation is set to +29 on the shot above, not the other 2. they are at 0.

Sony A7r + Minolta 50mm f1.4

If you look at the shots of the car, the angle is pretty different as you could expect. Sharpness is kind of sort of simillar? 😛 The Minolta 50mm has less microcontrast i think so it looks less sharp then the other 2.

The Samyang 85mm has good microcontrast so it seems sharper then i think it is.

When i look at these pics in Lightroom at 100% its pretty obvious that the Sony FE 28mm is the sharpest one. Atleast wide open.

Full frame -> Mft comparison. (Omg) ;) Sony a7r vs Em5 (with nokton)

compare-1 compare-2 compare-3 compare-4 compare-5 compare-6 compare-7 compare-8 Crop Crop-1 Crop-2

Most people, or atleast the slightly neerdier ones have a pretty strong opinion about weather this is “possible” or not. Comparing Mft to FF i mean. But here i go again.

The mindblowing detail of the 36mpix A7r sensor isn´t really there. When i sharpen pictures i look at them 100% so often it feels like the detail and sharpness is at best on pair with my Mft setup with Em5 and Noktons.

But when i zoom out, and see the “bigger picture” i realize thats not really the case. The A7r delivers “better” pictures for sure. Will i ever “use” the 36mpix and the “better” image quality? With 92.1 – 99.3% certainty, NO.

But thats not the reason i bought the full frame A7r either. The reason was mostly my Em5 is breaking apart, the shorter DOF, FF Bokeh and dynamic range.

At 100% the sharpness of the Noktons i had with my Em5 is on pair With my current set up. (But the A7r is 36pix so its actually alot less detail in the mft shots)

My Minolta MC 50mm f1.4 + A7r is a lighter package and delivers alot of “Bokeh for the buck” with great dynamic range.

But lets focus on the reasons i bought the A7r, DOF, Bokeh and Dynamic range, and i think this is where full frame is still in a league of its own. Sharpness and on many levels ISO is really good on the MFT system. Somehow the Em5, eventhough the pictures are noiser then lets say a Canon 5d mkii, there is more detail in the Em5 picture.

If one would do the math, Noktons f0.95 is not that far behind, thats about f1.9 on full frame, but the separation and pop i get with f1.4 on my A7r is really where it prevails. Bokeh is alot nicer on the lenses i have bought so far. Its not as “harsh” (now im beeng a little picky here, the Nokton bokeh is great) as the Noktons some times are.

DOF feels alot shorter even if the background seems blurred out to the same or similar extent the subject(s) seem to pop more.

And dynamic range, i still havent gotten used to it, alot of the times i push the trigger and think, “Thats gonna be blown out” but its not. I still cant belive how good on that regard it is, the dynamic range is a world of difference.

And one more great thing, Focus peaking! I had no ( or wery little issue ) with manual focus on my Em5 but now, with focus peaking. Why would anyone want AF? 😛 Siriously though, AF is great of course, but focus peaking is aswell!

I have an appointment in 30min so i gotto go, i´ll read through this later. Sorry if  the spelling is worse then usual.
