Porst WW 35 f/1.8 MC: New lens on the ... camera ...
It has been a few weeks since i bought my last 35mm, a Porst WW 35/1.8 MC in M42 mount.
Finally, i have been able to test it for a while, in one of my preferred places in Toulouse.
The lens has been a nice surprise. It doesn't have the same contrast as a Flektogon 35/2.4, at least wide open, indeed it is quite easy to focus, probably because of the reduced DOF. On my K10D, with a Katzeye focusing screen and an O-ME53 magnifier, i have missed only three pictures out of 21.
At first, a sample shot with the lens wide open, to test for sharpness and CA:
Then, a sample for the bokeh at f/2.8:
A set with other full-resolution pictures is available, as usual, on my Flickr photostream here.
