Eass call up for a meet up for two reason, first.. the sony 70200G sales to Sheau Juin. what a surprise to see her here.
reason number two.. to collect my modified mount carl zeiss biotar! yay. now this gem can mount on my a77. this is how it look like when mount on a580. with sheau juin behind..
can't wait to test it out. a shot taken with Sony a77 coupled with Zeiss Biotar 75mm f1.5.
people say old lens it about characteristic.. in this lens.. it makes thing spin.. or swirl bokeh..
it's not easy to get the swirl effect... maybe of the sensor size limitation?
got it! swirl background..great for portraits..
catch Shin Lee for a test. still have the zeiss color.
this is how the bokeh render this bokeh.
Thanks to Master Eass fine work. now i can use this vintage lens on my latest a77 camera.
a parcel arrived on my desk!! woohoo~ almost forgot about this gem i bought some time ago.
This is Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 75mm f1.5. weird focal length and weird aperture.. yeah i know..
blue purple coating.. the colour of Zeiss Red T coating.. of course if not as good as nowadays Carl Zeiss T* coating. according to the Serial Number.. this lens was made in the year between 1952-1955. in another words.. this lens is roughly 60 years-old !!!
that's how the lens look like form the side.. chrome finished.
attached with chrome hood.
secret message through the lens... Zeiss from Germany.
that's my new Zeiss Biotar 75mm f1.5... some said this was Zeiss failure product that creates massive swirly bokeh.. some say it's the characteristic of this lens.. just depends on how you look at it. this lens is in Exakta mount.. it require some mount replacement before i can use it on my camera. can't wait for it.. huhuhu
here is my manual lens line up. added a new chrome finished lens to the family..
