The Ross Bay storm drain was an obvious place to stop by while testing a new-to-me lens.
In this case it is a screw mount Fish-Eye-Takumar 17mm/f4, dating between 1967 and 1972.
I always was intrigued by fish eye lenses and the distortion they bring.
What attracted me to this one is that it is really quite small, covers the full frame without a circle, has built-in yellow and orange filters and I doubted I would ever see another for sale locally.
So, this is the from the first roll through the lens.
The fish-eye distortion is pronounced, but I like that.
It is sharp and quite contrasty. It does under expose by at least one or 1.5 stop, so that will need to be remembered.
This is probably going to become a travel lens to substitute for the too-bulky Canon 16-35/2.8.
EDIT: I hit publish instead of save, so you get a bonus image today, and I will prepare something for Saturday. Sigh
Canon Elan 7N, Takumar Fish-eye 17/4, Ilford XP2.
