Default Russian APO lens at work...














Honestly, I do have quite a few lenses as you may know by now and I'm a bit hard to please,
but this one, well, quite blew me away, had not expected such performance. A pleasure to use,
snappy focus, creamy bokeh, great color rendition and sharpness...hard to find a flaw, ok one,
it is not a true apochromat, but quite close to it.

Apart from the last simple picture of the rose, you have departed from fun lively flowers “reaching for the heavens” to showd such physical complexity of life forms in the garden!

.....so I missed thinking about the lens itself. Perhaps that’s ideal!

Take this first one as an example of the mechanical complexity that is so different from most flower forms.





The purple tubular component seems to have been added after the flower was made and affixed by workers in a village family artists production line. At first I thought, This must be a bespoke art work in silk, but then it’s real and made by “Mother Nature hereself!

This structure is so out of the ordinary that is absorbs and occupies our full attention and the lens and your hands, Klaus, are forgotten!

Nice series. I think I like the lily the best.
