Close-up of Hawker Dragonfly by Rivendell7

Currently unavailable for purchase

Close-up of Hawker Dragonfly by 

Taken with 1970s Zeiss Flektogon 35/2.4 lens + adapter, on Canon 450D.
An all-manual focus film camera lens, but very sharp with patience on a DSLR. It will focus down to 4".

Best to all,

I am a keen amateur photographer enjoying wildlife and nature images taken in West Somerset and on Exmoor.
I am a grandfather and enjoy my reclusive life on the edge of Exmoor, among the wildlife, birds, and nature.
I hope to learn more skills and techniques from some of the amazing artists on this site.

    my goodness…so cool! I love it!

  • Glad you like it, Erma. The old manual lenses from the 70s are very sharp on a DSLR, especially the Zeiss ones, and fun to play with, especially if anyone started photography in the film camera era ;-) Slightly longer to set up, but worth the patience usually.
    All the best,
