Mixing Noktons Coffee break.

coffee-missile-175 fence-425 fence-not-425 fia-2-nokton-425 Fia-Nokton-175-web lady-nokton-425-web moped-425-web nokton-425-at56 nokton-mixing-175web nokton-mixing-425-web nokton-nokton-175 pedal-nokton-425 termos-web-175Here is a bunch of Images from earlier today. Took our bikes for a ride to the “view point” (we also had to walk and travel by farry) Great  day, great Coffee! Nice with some sun and warmth in the atumn gloom.

All but the one with the “springy thing” is whot wide open, the “springy thing” is shot at f5.6. Stoped down, The Noktons are flawless (“pretty much yeah”). Click the pictures and the topic will say “175” or “425” depending on the lens used. Sprayed away at 10fps to catch the guy on his moped. Luckaly he slowed down as he was passing, he pushed that thing to atleast 100kmh (im guessing) a little further down the road. Not just original parts i supose. 🙂

Other then that, nothing major to report. Tack sharp, nice bokeh. Awesome leneses.

 

Shot with Either Voigtländer Nokton 17.5mm f0.95 or Nokton 42.5mm f0.95 and Em-5. with either B+W UV and/or ND filters.

 

Thanks.

Nokton 425

So here is finally a post, have been working for a few days and i havent worked up to shoting/posting. CA keeps accuring. But the most apparent thing i have noticed over the last few days is that there is alot less Coma then the 17.5mm has. and its definitely sharper aswell. Have had the CV 42.5mm f0.95 for 3weeks now? And its really awesome. Sure some CA, which i have been bitching about, that goes for both the 17.5 & 42.5.

Well, to sum up so far. Its sharp (even wideopen). slightly sharper then the 17.5, it has alot less coma then the 17.5. Colors are better (not alot), bokeh looks pretty much the same (good) its alittle smaler, 3D pop feeling is better. And on the down side? Well nothing really…

 

And about the images. Shot wideopen with the Em.5 + Nokton 42.5mm f0.95, hld6 (first part)

Got super lucky nailing that fish on the fly @f0.95. Took it at the weekly fishing competition in Torsång. Man those old men/ladies can haul some fish! The rest of the pics are shot at random places around “town”.

The mentaly insane need their Coffee!

insane-bathtub-webVisited the abandoned mental asylum in Säter a couple of days ago. “Säters fasta paviliong”. (more shots below) It has been closed for a few years now and is slowly withering away with some help from vandalism.

This shot i composed out of 10? shots, all taken with em-5 + Notkon 17.5 @0.95 on a tripod with a cable trigger set at 2sec intervalls. Put together in Photoshop with layers and layer masks.

“The mentaly insane need their Coffee!” was my original thought behind this shot.

Kind of creepy going in to that tub knowing that poeple have been tortured in it over the years. Well, not tourtured, rehabilitated.

 

Just figured out how to enable comments (i think). So if you feel the urge, dont hesitate to leave something in the box. Im not afraid of critiques, if you feel you want to ponit something out that you think i do wrong. please let me know. Or what ever you want to say about my blog or its entries. (Please) Do it! 🙂

Well now i need my coffee to.

 

Please come again.

Bye.

Day 4, Nokton 42.5 “Vs” nokton 17.5

nokton-425-ASD-ASD-42.5 nokton-425-ASD-ASD-2-17.5Here is some sort of comparison between 2 shots, the top one taken with the CV Nokton 42.5mm f0.95 and the bottom taken with CV Nokton 17.5mm f0.95. I have edited both to the best of my abillity.

Color correction,CA, sharpness (i sharpened them equally). Well most things u usually edit. I have tried to make them as equal as possible. And as you can see, they dont differ much at all.

I got some feedback on flickr from a reader! (Yes apparently i atleast got one reader! or perhaps visitor is the correct term 🙂 ) It seems i have given the impression that the 17.5mm is not an awesome lens. And that was never my intention, nor is it the case!

The Nokton 17.5mm f0.95  is totally awesome! Sure it has CA, but so does everylens… if you pixelpeep these 2 images, the 42.5 is slightly sharper, now when cropped and sharpend, you cant tell them apart. The only apparent differens is the FOV (and some contrast on her face, the sun peeped out when i was shooting with the 42.5).

And that is almost all the diffrence there is. BUT the 42.5mm is to my eyes, sharper,has less CA and less distortion. When compared.

At the end of the day. Its not much to whine about, or perhaps nothing at all to whine about. The difference between the 17.5 and the 25 is alot bigger i think, but that is alot of guess work on my part, i have just shot a few pics with the 25. I think Sharpness is towards the low end of what is acceptable. (as far as i could tell from the little i used it) And by that i sharpness @ the biggest aperture. Stopped down they are pretty much flawless, that goes for the 25mm to i guess.

Hope this straighten things out!

Day 3 with Nokton 42.5mm f0.95

nokton-42.5-112-web nokton-42-asd nokton-42-fia-web nokton-42sdmm nokton-42-web nokton-42-webb nokton-42.5-111-web

 

All but the last one, wich is shot @f5.6, is shot wideopen. It is sharp! Perhaps not as sharp as i initially said. But sharp! Only slightly sharper then my Nokton 17.5mm. I still belive colors and bokeh are alot better.

Separation in the 42.5mm is alot better to. It really gives you that “FF” feel.

When zooming in on pic nr6 i could clerly see her eyes and face detalis, wich is pretty impressive for a 16mp shot when cropped that much, its not really that much left to work with. And there is quite alot of CA around the handlabars on the stairs and around the postbox in the same shot.

So far i dont regret getting the lens for one second! Totally worth it! 🙂

 

Check black later for more “bokehlicious” shots.

 

Auf Wiedersehen

Darkroasted Coffee Nokton.

The Nokton almost got toasted during todays shot, 17.5mm is apparently dangerously short for shots like theses 🙂 But no Noktons were hurt during the session.

Shot in our grill. Used some sort of black matte fabric for background… these are the 2 that turned out best. threw some sticks of wood in there , burned them till black.

Sprayed the entire thing with lighting fluid just before pouring coffee in there and blasted away @ 9fps (quite handy for this kind of thing 🙂 )

So here are some shots from our road trip to Norway,awesome country, insanely beautiful. For change, most of the shots are from my Samyang 7.5mm. Lovely lens, it have been kind of forgotten lately. Alot because of the Voigtländer 🙂 But with scenery like this, you gotto go wider. Colors from the Samyang is not as good as you might expect, but in post you can get it right pretty easy.

Its not like it totaly lack colors, just some saturation and contrast. Sharpness is really good. very little or no CA. Distortion, well, its a fisheye for 270Euro (in sweden). So go get one!

Couple of shots in there from the Voigtländer aswell, info under the pictures.

Its late, so i´ll go to bed.

Selling these on behalf of a friend who does not enjoy internet very much… He assures me it all works fine, i have just tested the AF and everything seems to work fine, no problems with scratches or anything like that!

 

 

Finally some summer heat.

granny-5 doggy-water granny-3Swimming at my grandmothers place after some high pulse mtb riding in the heat, it was quite nice to cooldown after that feat.  Some CA around her face in shot nr 3. All three shot with some less then deacent Dörr ND4 @f0.95. Dont really recomend these filters, they even managed to make my (its now sold though) oly 45mm 1.8 look soft. And thats pretty much one of the sharpest lenses on the planet.

But i had to stack 2 of them at that time, one i guess is alright if your on a (really) tight budget. but, u can stack B+W ND4+Nd8+Nd110 with no aparrent loss of sharpness so with that in mind. Dont buy Dörr ND filters…

Well that turned in to some sort of filter review.

But this blog is more about the photos then my review, im not in any regard a pro, my main goal with this is to be a sourse for “bokehlicious” Nokton 17.5mm f0.95 photos to look at, and see what it can achieve befor buing it.

And to sum up the months with the OMD and the 17.5. Awesome combo! And you say its all realtive though, sure. But when i say that, i compare it to my previous set-upseses. (5d mkii +35mm 1.4 L or 50mm 1.2 L) In DOF terms its impossible to compare, well its not but the 5d will have shallower dof. Bokeh i would say is better then the 35L but not as good as the 50L. And depending on you application for the set up, with the MF in mind, the Nokton might not be for all poeple.

When i think about all the hassle with micro adjusting the AF of the 5d, but i never felt i could trust it enough. MF on the 5d is a Pain to use. And to haul that Mother f around… I brought it + 24-70L and a 200L up the inca trail to macchiu piccu. And on a couple of  skiing trips to the Alps.

I finally realized, i dont make 5million inch prints of my photos, and i dont want to haul that size and weight around, and i dont want the hassle with micro adjusting anymore.

So i bought the Em-5 on a whim. And it really surprised me in almost everyway. Bought some “cheap” lenses (compared to Canon lenses) and everything was tack sharp, AF nailed perfect every time! the only downside (almost, the AF Servo still has ways to go) was the DOF, it wasnt the same, the “magic” you get from shooting at f1.2 – f1,8 on full frame was not quite there.

And then i stumbled on the the Nokton 17.5, and the math makes the DOF some where around f1.9 in FF terms. So even with the huge price tag i decided to buy it, even though it makes that small package heavy for its size, totally worth it, the perfect compromize between size and “quality”.

No problem to bring it every where!

Well thats my limit of writing in one sitting, like i said:P My main foucs is the photos. So im gonna sum it up here. Buy the Nokton, if you feel you can spare the money, you wont regret it!

 

Laters!

 

Kayak!

kajak-3 kajak-4 kajak-5 kajak-7 söälen-2 kajak-2

Bought myself a kayak a cople of days ago (witch also means i wont be getting the Voigtländer 42.5mm any time soon 🙁 ), already cought my first pike in it! 🙂 It´s not quite the same as fishing from a boat. And as for the photos, Some CA in shot nr 1, at the ” Venture Kayaks” logo. Tack-sharp as always. perhaps there is more to whine about for the geeky eye. I sure cant find it though 🙂

I have pretty much sold all my other lenses by now (Pana Leica 25, Oly 45 and the Pana 14). The 17.5mm is always on. Still have the Oly 40-150 and Samyang 7.5mm. I need those for my holydays or skiing trips in the winter. That and the low coast of the two are the only reason i still own them.

All shot with The Voigtländer Nokton 17.5mm f0.95 @f0.95 + OMD Em-5.

Tjena.
