Testing a new lens: Tamron SP 90 f/2.5 Macro

A classic Adaptall-2 lens, with a third-party adapter mount, just cleaned from some internal haze (and a nice partial fingerprint left by a previous "repairman").

Stopped down to f/4, processed by Silkypix:

13 - Tamron SP90 Fix - _MG_9580

Another one at f/4:

Tamron SP90 f2.5 Macro 52B - _MG_9917

M42 fever: Voigtlander Color-Ultron 50 f/1.8

... At the Jardin des Plantes, in Toulouse ...

Voigtlander Color-Ultron 50 1.8 - _MG_9064

Picture shot at f/2.8, processed by Silkypix for EV adjust.

The (growing) Flickr set with the full-resolution pictures is available clicking here, but be careful to the camera id or the image tags, since some of them are shot with a Pentax K10D, while others have been shot with the 5DII ...

Too pity this lens locks the mirror of the camera when focused at the infinity ...
