P67 120mm Soft

Discussion in 'Medium Format' started by jim_sabo, Apr 28, 1998.

  1. Does anyone have experience using the 120mm soft focus lens for the Pentax 67? Care to attempt a description of the images it produces (relative to soft filters)? Also, I would expect this focal lenth to be a little short for close portraits, so how is the perspective?

    Thanks, Jim
     
  2. Hi Jim,

    <p>

    I bought the 120 softfocus second hand a few weeks ago. My first impressions:

    <p>

    - Very nice effect. Sharp details with a lot of diffraction around it, espacially against the light. Best pictures (in my
    opinion) at f4.
    - Very difficult in focus. I had a lot of pictures with incorrect focus (my fault!). I often can+t see the correct focus in the
    TTL-Finder. With magnifier no problem, but not so good to use.
    - You can get a wonderful portrait-lens with the 2x converter.

    <p>
