Fusilli – A short movie made while testing a lens
Same on VIMEO:
I was preparing lunch at home and as usual I was going to split myself between cooking and testing my new vintage lens, a Minolta Rokkor MC 58mm f1.4, so I decided to use it for shooting myself while cooking.
It was some kind of joke, because timing was ruled by the food’s own cooking time, but it ended in 20 minutes of pure fun.
Editing was done in Blender, again for testing reasons, and it came out with interesting results: some limits and some powerful pros, but I’ll talk extensively about it in another post.
How did the lens perform on my Nex-5n ?
Well, it’s a tank-built lens with exceptional bokeh, on the downside it is prone to flare and sharpness is not on top if you stay on fastest apertures.
In conclusion, more than you can expect from the price I actually paid for it (around 35 euro on ebay), it’s in the price range of some russian vintage lenses but with far superior image and construction quality, we can’t say it’s on par with an Olympus Zuiko 50 f1.4, but it’s close to it, being half of the price.
