I added a new lens to my vintage category. The Canon 50mm F1.2 LTM.

Wow, even earlier than my 1961 design 58/1.2 - Kewl!

Both 7 element, 5 group modified Double-Gauss designs, but quite different in

The 58/1.2, wide open, gives a glamorous look to almost anything. 😁 <http://galleries.moosemystic.net/MooseFoto/index.php?gallery=Tech/Oly_Pens&image=DSC00390cr.jpg>

To give you more ideas 😉 

Extension is required with this lens due to 1m close focus.

Slightly longer FL and close focus of 0.6 m on my slightly less ancient lens mean I've had little such need. I do have extension tubes, but don't recall using on this lens?.

Not sure how to post process this lens, so minimal adjustments.

I find that many such shots require little adjustment.

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
