My next vintage lens arrived. The Mamiya-Sekor 50mm f/2. This lens is a bit softer (I assume its the f/2) with very smooth operation, though I find it a touch more arduous to focus than the Sigma Mini-Wide II, despite its lighter weight (probably also the f/2 given the slightly narrower band of focus). But its a beautiful lens. I assume I'll start using this for portrait shots alongside the Canon EF 50mm STM f/1.8.

I also got the Diana+ fisheye, which on the APS-C crop-sensor is actually an 80mm telephoto - but - it gives an almost as good as the Holga (not quite) at a more usable field of view as the 60mm Holga is 96mm on the APS-C crop sensor.

As usual, I am looking forward to playing with this more!

i really like the second pic, how the reflection is so sharp, while the rest is sort of hazy.

Wish that I could take credit for that, but I thought it would make a better picture if I inverted it! Guess it worked. For me, it was the color of the "sky" in the reflection which lent itself to legitimacy. Thanks for the comment! Its always nice to hear feedback :)
