Soccer mom.

Taken partially against the light — wide open — with the “bargain” 75 Color Heliar.

The 100% crops (not shown) are quite impressive; the detailed rendering is obvious, even in this web-sized image.

More than the sharpness, I really appreciate how this lens is handling the light in this scene.

    …heh heh…But does she drive a Volvo?

    (Everclear reference…oh forget it.) Anyway, great shot! Managed to find one of these in mint condition on your recommendation…was actually looking for a decent 75, and thought the 1.8 was a bit big.

    Hope you are well…all the best,
    M.

    There, you’ve gone and done it again… Taking pictures we mortals can’t. But have to ask… Was it any way posed?

    (Mark… Does your source have other copies of this lens?)

    I would love to know how this lens compares against the Heliar f/1.8 m-mount version.
