As I edge ever closer to the finishing line of my 50 days project, I am keen to reach my goal by the end of this weekend, so decide to get out for a rare week evening outing, for a short stroll with my Pentacon lens
The evening is still rather warm, temperatures have been in the mid to high twenties celcius this week but at just after 7pm, the harsh sunlight has gone.
I decide to take in one of the public parks / gardens, about a 15 minute walk from home, just to see what nature shots I may find.
Using a 50mm lens for this length of time has brought me a lot of pleasure and I have truly realised the versaltility of this focal length.
I have always enjoyed macro photography, but this old lens can focus close in to capture the finer details of nature without the expense of a dedicated lens.

Nice close ups Andy ! and yes, you are right, and there are many other vintage gems like your Pentacon, which are underrated by many photographers. They have much more character than the Chinese lenses, and are sometimes even cheaper.
In a world of clinical sharpness, I will continue to embrace the character of these older lenses marc
