Helios 40 85/1.5 M42 : Xmas light bokeh
So here goes my first blog post, how trendy........
here is a desktop image for the holidays that I took , click on it to see it full size
It was taken with a Pentax K-X and a Soviet era Helios 40 85mm f1.5 which is a clone of the 1939 Carl Zeiss Biotar 75mm. Its a tank gunsight and weighs almost a kilogram, not what i really intended my KX to be used for, but it makes the out of focus highlights become elliptical and/or lenticular , which i find intriguing
