Quest of Better = Zen Mind

If you think about all aspects of Zen, you might noticed a point, which might be “The Point” in “The Zen”.

There are many books, collection of so-called Mondo = Question and the Answer — (though, they are mostly Rinzai approach).  Yet still, there is no ultimate sample like = “If you can answer this, you have reached to the Zen, or even the Enlightenment” kind.  —– Do you know why ?  Because, Zen is not a notion or thinking nor one answer or one point to reach.  Zen is a process.   A finger pointing the Moon.   Does anybody ever reached to the Moon ?   No.    Zen is not the Moon.   Nor Enlightenment.   Finger never reach the Moon.   But without the finger, there couldn’t be any Zen.    Because, Zen is in its process.    The process, try to reach.   Kneeling, a bit by bit —– ? to where ? —– to the better.   Go better mean, not to remain in the same place. —– in this aspect, Soto’s doing approach is easier than the Rinzai’s thinking approach. = This is the reason why most of practice for Zen learning was originated from Soto Zen.   That’s how all those achievement was made such as in the crafts skill, sword making, martial art etc. etc.   

You might have noticed, yes, this is the other version of the photo on the previous post.   This photo looks too ordinary = I chose darker one which may give a bit more dubious impression.   And made the image a bit of adjustment —> right hand side up a bit to break a balance and give even more un-settled feeling.  Then trimmed the top further to show the metallic forks more and gave even brutal, uneasy, un natural feeling.   —– you can see those differences on front but if it was a notion in your head, such as “The post should give rather heavy impression”  = How can you find the answer, what to do.    Seeing the things on front and adjust them to achieve certain direction would be easier —– but not in a thinking.   So, this was the point, how the idea of Kaizen was developed, and how Japanese created many small marvels in the electronics still, not able to invent iPhone. (Japanese was making over-spec mobile-phones but couldn’t conceive a fundamentally different phone system. = adding one more spec can be done as a Kaizen step, but iPhone kind was too far for the  Kaizen approach = It needed to change whole thinking from the start.) 

Zen culture is Doing, and its matter is “Keep Doing while aiming better” —– We may achieve Doing in Mushin = almost like a robot.   But aiming better is the matter of the Mind-set = with a full concentration, keep clear eyes on it down to the minute detail, and see what it should be.  = This is the ZEN practice. = In short, say to do A, having a mind-set “Do better A” and this mind-set might be sublimated down to the subconscious level IS Zen ! ~ ~ ~ and then, when you can do A with no mind at all, neither care anything (let A to have its own Karma) you ARE enlightened !  —– Unless otherwise, all the bicycle rider who doesn’t care any mind-set would become a Zen master.  (That’s why the enlightened master does looks exactry the same to the outside non-person.     😀  )

ZM2 Lens – Spring Walk

First visitor here tonight was from USA, seeking Plum Flower.   So, I’ll show you many Cherry flowers, Plum Flowers.

You may not believe though, all those photos here were taken by just one lens,  (homemade ZM2 lens, on Nikon Z7 camera — ISO 100, AV setting)  Slight difference of the focus, the lens can produce quite different kind of image !

This plant called Japonica Japan was originated from Japan as its name suggests, and a cousin of Quince, or relative of Pear.   Incidentally, a name Nipponia Nippon which meaning is the same (Nippon is the formal name — Japan is a nick name after Marco Paulo) was for national birds Toki who has been nearly extinct and revived to about 150 now.

Ever cute Snow drop, Japanese name is Yukiwari-so (雪割草) which mean the flower who sprout out the snow !

I found this variety of cherry first time in this country.  Still no idea of its name.

And this is somewhat close to the plum. (But not Japanese Ume 梅 —– I don’t know why Ume didn’t come here.)

And this is Daphne —– somewhat related to Cloves though, the story was very complicated = lots of misunderstanding.  (You might have seen a furniture made by a wood called Mahogany but never know what its tree looks like.) 

Same as that, the wood for burning incense Agarwood 沈香 was a mystery to the Japanese for many hundreds of years, and people mistook this plant was related to Cloves 丁字 (hence Japanese misnamed this Daphne as 沈丁花---on both case the letter 丁 represents the shape of nails which is a shape of the Cloves as well and the smell of this flower is the same to the Cloves though) those plants are in fact totally different plant. 

Since Agarwood can be sold for very high price, the tree has been pushed to near extinction = now they are protected and the genuine wood is hard to come by, so that, there said to be a lots of fake in the market. ( = a wood dripped into an artificial incense was sold to the tourists.)

Crocus is a relative of the Saffron.  (So, don’t eat them)

(In fact, Daffodil is also poisonous — if you eat = Who eat ?)

I guess this cherry seems to be originated from Yama-zakura.  — but not sure of its multi-petal flowers.

So, it was a nice walk and shootings.

Those three photos were somewhat an extra.  I met Ms.S and Mr.M as a next door of one of the cherry flower’s place.  They got very fancy bicycle with motor. (And those photos were for them to copy from here)

In law trouble

net2-a09a8926.jpg

While browsing the Net, I encountered a kind of board where people put their story or accusation, complaint etc in their life.  People may also dumping their frustration or showing off their successful plot or revenge etc as well.     M m m —–  Then suddenly, I realized that there is one of the life’s heaviest paradox of which I’ve been able to avoid as a single monk. 

While growing up, whether as good boy, bad boy or good girl, bad girl regardless, whether they got any qualification and gained any good social skill OR NOT, almost of all in equal term, they get marry or became a in-law of the husband or wife.   Then naturally, the drama starts between those newly joined members and old families.    Elder brother’s wife may take advantage to be a senior position and bully even steal a things with an excuse of I just borrowed it as in the same family and just forgot to return etc. etc.    The more audacious win.   Even if it was an obvious crime, Police is not very keen to intervene the family matter = giving an impression of free to go.  (If Police try to prosecute, suddenly the witness change etc, because of the pressure from the close ties etc. etc. —— Police knows those entangled emotional situation too well etc. etc. )

You may choose your spouse but you can’t avoid your in-law.    Unlike to get a job, you don’t need any qualification or intelligence to become in-law as there is no test or interview.   Even worse, so-called commonsense may not to be shared by others neither no enforcement.   They can say, that’s who I am, its my right to be me.    So, hell opened. —– And the very hell is where they thrive.   They grab what ever they want and getaway in a midst of chaos.  

For introduction, or a match making party, at least a kind of selection of school or society, still in reality, most of the people find their spouse mostly by chance without knowing any detail of the person let alone its relatives.   And suddenly those people may come to your room with spare key.   Asserting that they have a right to demand and do so as a relatives (even if they are only in-law).

Their logic is, as the declaration of human right says, everybody got the equal right to claim their share of happiness.   Especially among the same family, the happiness and the wealth has to be shared equal.  Therefore your expensive jewelry also belong to me etc.   So, I don’t need to ask you because, it IS mine.   Don’t you understand ?

Everybody got an equal right to get marry to almost anybody yet still, all the trouble might be caused by “who the person IS” which has been almost out of scope when he or she start their relation (they were hot in love and believing nothing else is a matter, don’t interfere us). —– So does, anybody has a freedom to choose own life-style as it is their own business and their right — Then suddenly the floodgate opened as a in-law.   It seems it is a most convenient excuse to an uneducated EX-hooligan to start bullying, make the younger in-law to easiest target.   —– If you see the hi-school  boys, girls, in the town you may understand how such in-law was going to be mass-produced.   —– it’s a trouble isn’t it ?    To have the individual right and the freedom and the peaceful social harmony in the same time seemed to be impossible.   But, that’s what the world is.

ZM-2 lens (Second version)

ZM2-DSC_0513

———————- (ZM2 sample photo —– fake  stage up)

There wasn’t so much complaint to ZM lens —– still, give a thought or two = even though I said most peculiar, the reality was not peculiar enough, just another mediocre lens. 

Before, while experimenting with the lens, I noticed that this lens can produce much more aberration when it was reverse mounted.  =  So, why not. = I further modified the lens optics made reversed.

The result was, some may say, a lens impossible to use.  (Somewhat comparable  to the Helicoid-B lens which got strong astigmat aberration ) Yet still, this might be what I needed.  (What’s wrong ? )   😀    (as you can see from the photos, DOF is extremely shallow, and showing very heavy coma aberration.   This lens was about 45mm F2 equivalent, fully open, still if well focused, image looks quite sharp.) —– now I need to find the suitable subject.  (I hope the subject wouldn’t be frightened and runaway )    😀

ZM2-DSC_0579

Is it peculiar enough ? (just a bit off focus)

ZM2-SC0579

And this is well focused (so far).   😀

Karma – Fate – (3)

This is yet another 8150 story.   On my life, the sign 8150 is regularly appear here and there = nothing special or I would say, they are a kind of road sign, OK to go.  Yet still, it may seen quite odd or even a supernatural phenomenon to others eyes.

In the world, there is a kind of people who proclaims that they ARE the chosen people though, it seems if it was a case they seemed to have far more share of the bad fortune all through the history.  =  It doesn’t seem that the God is anywhere near to their side.   From the eastern view, the idea of a personified God speaks same language and negotiable, sounds too odd, in comparison to the absolute eastern Heaven.   They are more like a children’s bed time story.   Yet still, you are free to believe any story.

Lord Buddha, as the enlightened teacher, he didn’t believe a God kind or after life as they are too irrational, and banned the magic kind of deceptive practice to his followers.  (Its mean, Tantra’s “Magic words”= Dharani is not the Buddhism, neither all sorts of Mahayana fantasies are nothing to do with the original teachings.  (They are the stories borrowed from the Veda = Brahmanism / Hinduism.)

Yet still, the belief of the Dharma and the Karma is in the teachings.   So, where those two seemingly conflicting idea reconcile ? —– In fact, they are the real phenomena and its rules.  They themselves exists like a phenomenon of lightning or thunder, they exists without the imaginary god of lightning or thunder. = Such Gods are nothing more than a children’s story.

So, does it mean, the Dharma and Karma are just the visible phenomena ?  or actual occurrences ? —– the rules  rules behind = invisible.   Those ruler IS the western equivalent of the God, but the Rules or Heaven is almost the abstract, —– we only see its sign.   And in my case, the sign was the number 8150 (and its variation).   When I see it’s there, I feel a kind of approval of me doing it.   Still, to find the address of the seller in China was also 8150 (in fact 518000) frightened me.  (By the way, the mysterious lens I talked about also having that number —– its mean, I was right to speak out)  😀 —– So, what’s all those mean ?  Even though, the Karma is abstract, it IS watching us and ruling our life.  It is not an imaginary existence.  It’s real.   (at least on my life = I was born to have this life while possessing the palm line which is saying the same = So, its benefit is, I don’t get ill or get accident. Except getting old.   😀 — getting old is a nature of the Karma ) —– I wouldn’t boast such as that I was chosen but I’m actuary seeing the Karma / Dharma is with me. —– though, as an honest feeling, it is a bit bothersome = leave me alone.  I want to have a bit more naughty life away from their watchful eyes.     😀  )

Sony lens Mystery ? ? ? (Focus moves without power)

Sony FE lens for E-mount has 18mm frangeback and Nikon-Z camera was designed to have the distance from the mount to image sensor 16mm = in the traditional sence, this 2mm gap can easily be overcome by the focus adjustment (infinity may come with a bit of rotation) by extend the focus 2mm more.   Yet, I do know the Sony lens was fixed to the minimum F-aperture and there is no manual focus ( = so-called focus by wire) when it was not connected to the Sony camera. = no point for attempt to use the lens anywhere else.

Though, as I made a lens mount adapter NEX (Sony E) to Nik-Z, I needed to find where the exact top point of the ring, before the Nik-Z mount ring and the bayonet part of the Sony lens cap was fixed.   Then I discovered very strange phenomenon of the Sony lens’ behavior.  

(The shape of internal shade appeared on the image = it never happen when the lens was used on the Sony body — in any distance, in any F-aperture = seemingly it is only to destruct the experiment.    The truth was that this lens SEL30M35  was for APS-C cropped size = not for the full frame = black frame shows the size of APS-C image and the image on the A7R finder was in fact digitally enlarged 50mm equivalent image. )

At first sight, the lens seems to be frozen at the closest focus position  —– In that case, I should click the camera (Nik-Z) to close-up test, then utterly unexpectedly, the focus of the lens jumped to infinity !   I couldn’t believe my eyes.  On the repeated test, the lens behaved like this again.  

(Note, only the Sony Macro 30mm showed this strange phenomenon, not with other lenses such as 12~24mm Zoom or Zeiss 55mm F1.8)

Since the lens was not mounted to the Sony body, its mean no connection to the power supply, how the focus motor can move ? ? ? —– (Is Sony lens got internal power back-up inside of the lens barrel, such as a super capacitor ?) —– The most peculiar things was, how the lens did know if the lens was mounted on the camera (even though it was not on Sony camera) and aimed at a close subject or not ? ? ?    In other words, when the Nik-Z and the Lens was left alone or lens alone, it doesn’t move at all, as if the lens got its own self-awareness !   Otherwise, who is activating this phenomenon ? (Further test found that the lens alone ( without being mounted to any camera (Sony or Nikon which ever)) moves = both F-Aperture and Focus moves = the lens got internal power back-up —– When the lens was aimed to dark object = Focus moves to far,  and if it was aimed to bright subject (such as the Sky) the focus moves to the closest.)   (Microchip may operate with little power though, the motor driving the lens for AF needs a certain amount of power = even a super capacitor can not operate long.)   The another question is, is it only to annoy the people ? ( —– to whom ? —– How many people in the world would experiment like this, other than me ! ? ) otherwise what is it for ?  = It’s nothing but a mystery is it  ! ? ? ?

Sony’s camera division was created by the former Minolta people who developed the world first Auto Focus SLR, Alpha 7000.  Once I was invited to visit Minolta’s Osaka HQ as a camera critics and met Mr.Kobori who lead the creation of A7000 system.   However, why Minolta couldn’t keep the position of top runner was, that they gone too far on the system design. = Try to fulfill all the possibility of the photography, then trespassed the secret of the individual creativity.   So that, despised by the top photographer (Even if they do use the same technique, they don’t want it given by the camera.)  —– while looking back, I’m not sure whether the bad habit or paranoia of the Minolta people still hanging around Sony’s floor ? ? ?   😀   (Isn’t this a paranormal, or horror story ?    This is a camera equivalent of a severed head speaks ! — If not a poltergeist )   😀

 


To see if it was a joke or accident, I tested them again.

Nik-Z-E mount-(B2)-001

The Sony 30mm Macro was mounted on Nikon-Z via homemade NEX to Nik-Z adapter, when the Nikon-Z was switched on, the image appeared then with a bit of noise the black frame appeared (photo left) as the lens focus seemed to be close up, I aimed the camera out of window (photo right)

Nik-Z-E mount(B1)-001

And, I put an object for close up —– then spontaneously the focus was moved to infinity, seemingly to destruct the close up image !  (Strange ! — Image sensor is Nikon-Z side which was not connected to the Sony lens —– How the lens did know it was a close-up image ? ? ?)    (I wonder, if the devices started to communicate each other with a common code by NFC, Near Field Communication kind = rather futuristic horror story isn’t it  ?) 

All those were happened while the lens 30mm Macro was on the NEX to Nik-Z adapter, its mean, the lens was having no power supply or feed back from the camera body.

(Yet still, as I said few lines before, if the devices started to communicate, and using RFID like system, lens may able to receive the Info’ even a power from the camera body ! —– and near future, the camera may starts to beep beep you “The girl sitting over there is a well-known model, would you like to take her picture ? ” )   😀

Still, the question is the same = What makes the lens focus move without power without intelligence of the image.    What was that for ?    (I need to ask SONY —– I gave an inquiry of which the Case number was  18 ****8 —– Who answer me ? ? ? —– In fact, I wonder how many technician in Sony ever got knowledge of this  ?)

——————————————————————————————————————————————–

After I discovered that the lens keeps moving whether it was mounted on the Nikon (using homemade NEX to NikZ adaptor) or left alone.   So, they were the photographic evidences of Sony (or Minolta) zombie state.

SEL30M35-op-001

When the lens detects the light, its focus moved to closest (photo left)  When the lens detect no light (ie; dark) focus was fixed to far — Then suddenly take the lens cap off and aimed to the outside, the focus move back to closest = So, this picture was just before the focus moves (photo right)   (I have no idea what sort of the game Sony heated up ? ? ?  —– But, the game against to whom ? —– It seems all those strange activities were to make this APS-C lens work on a full-frame A7R body = automatically adjust the 30mm image zoom-up to 50mm equivalent image. )   😀

Most beautiful Face 2018

The magazine, TC Candler announced the 100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2018 which selected Thylane Blondeau as the top beauty.

And this is yet again Ai Shinozaki = she was listed in there 84th, the bottom of  4 other Japanese. 

(Something distinctive of the Japanese standard of “Beauty” or “Pretty” often reject the big-mouthed face like the western “Gorgeous” face. —– simply Japanese hate talkative = noisy person to be in their close proximity. = We wouldn’t deny their existence though, don’t come close to me = leave me alone, don’t disturb my peace.  In reality, there are lots of talkative active women presenter in the TV = no problem we can just switch off the TV) 

What peculiar the choice of Ai Shinozaki is —– she is not a typical Japanese beauty, far from it, she is rather indistinguishable = you may miss her in the cloud.   But that is the strongest point why she was chosen to be the top of most untold lover of Japanese men.   Thousands, millions of men are the Otaku, loving their 2D character (= the character in the printed comics) hate 3D real existence of women = hence stay alone, never get involved into the relation. 

For most of the western man’s concept, such mind-set couldn’t be understood = without the physical meanings, it would be no use to think about the relation.  But it seems, the love can be a purely an imaginal existence in some cases. 

Many years ago, when I went back Japan to see my mother, she told me that the mother of woman-A came to tell that A will going to get marry.     ? ? ? — A was one of my secondary school classmate.    Why her marriage was anything to do with me ?   To be other than a classmate, nothing else has been happened between us.   We’ve never been a close friend let alone any relationship.    Yet still, in her mind, one-day when I come back from England, then court her hand.  —– can anybody hold this belief for 25 years in a totally isolated mind = no attempt to make any communication, never came to see my mother asking my address and attempt to write a letter.  But just waited as an innocent maiden.  I’m not telling you a horror story, neither bragging or boast funny story.   It was just a simple fact happened many years ago.   So, I’m wondering that in her 70s, how woman-A is thinking her life?  And myself, if it was happened what kind of the life we could have together. But, the Karma kept me woman free and made me live as such.  This is what Karma mean, it is beyond of anybody’s choice.  We can not bend it. 

Like all other instinctive reactions, the love was created in the old cortex of the brain, Amygdala.   When certain visual signal (or other significant signal) hit the Amygdala   ! ! !   Oh, I love it (or him or her) = Love at the first sight.   And it was the instant seclusion of the Love hormone, serotonin, dopamine etc —– with those chemical effects filling all corner of the body = the body was immersed with love.  Finger was filled with tingling sensation, other parts was filled with hot blood etc etc.  Such reaction has the same pattern like when we saw a deadly snake, then our body would be filled with adrenaline and get hi-tension. —–

Funny things about the visual pattern which hit hard the Amygdala.  It seems that the pattern was pre-loaded, but it is hard to trace the origin.   (could be even DNA originated subconscious.) —–  Try to find such pattern,  I collected 50,000 photos of faces and sorting them —– I found the pattern which attract me though, I couldn’t find any relation among them, let alone its origin.   Even funnier was, such pattern creates the soft spot in the mind = it seems this soft spot is the all source of the trouble.   Such soft spot blinded our eyes and override the rational thinking.   (Simply, we often turn the blind eyes to the cause of trouble = then it will come back hard)   Life is hard = So, why not to have a dream on 2D beauty —– they wouldn’t betray you.   😀

Net Shopping

How convenient they are.  I absolutely agree.  Without Ebay and the Chinese supplier of the small components, my kind of DIY couldn’t exist.  Though it has an inevitable drawback of remote shopping.  I’m buying the things only from its description and the photos, without actually checking the product, and paying the money in advance.   As a matter of fact, I’m doing this while fully aware of me lose the money.   That was why I don’t do the shopping of more than £15 (with very few exception).   That may be a cost of having a laugh, Ha ha ha.  —– On the history, in the early days, 10, 15 years ago, I failed all the shopping which was more than £50 each = two from US and the other from Australia when I wanted to get Hi-power LED.   Just the money has gone and I never seen any LED.   No reply to my Email, or any Phone call.  That’s it.  The end.  What I got was the expensive lesson.   😀

Recently, I bought several items on the Net.   MNh 2500mAh DURACELL Batteries from Green something of UK dealer. Because I trusted the DURACELL , I bought two packs of them.   They were fantastic on the start.   I used them for a kind of LED lighting = Their power continued more than double of the previous set (seemed 1500mAh )    Then, after the second, third charge, they lost the capacity, down to the half.   In fact their price was cheaper among the others.   But, obviously there was a catch behind.  

There are two different approaches to the sales tactics, “Less profit but selling quick and more”  or  “With higher price, selling less but more profit with less handling and posting” —– yet another approach was, find the cheap deal for threw away goods, such as the rejected product from the factory bin.  (Well known example was the half price memory card —– you can understand where those memory can come from if you realize that only few company in the world can produce such Hi-Tec memory = cheap one was the rejected because of so many dead address = to skip the dead address slow down the process which you may not noticed)  Anyway only few customers return the goods or claim the refund. = They expect that they can get away with the money in the pocket.  (And they do.)

The another item was two sets of Lens / Body cap for Sony E-mount —– though I got 1 Sony, 1 EOS = then, who bother to send them back and get replacement for £3 product ? = Ha ha ha.  

I had talked about the Piercing saw = as I wrote, they were good shopping yet, the saw blade came with (supposedly 6 different sizes)  were, in fact all same size.    Ha ha ha   again.

In the another shopping = against the ordered item 58mm to 58mm mount, 36mm to 90mm extension helicoid ring, what I received was 25mm to 50mm extension ring —– still they want to have my 5 star response.  (they may not aware that they made a mistake)     We can’t to be too serious with Net.   Because of they are loose and not square, we can have a fun.   Likewise, even with President Tramp, still, life goes on.   Ha ha ha   😀

Most useful Tool

It’s a kind of metal saw.  Much smaller version of Hack Saw.  Some times using same saw-blade with a Junior-Hack Saw which was called Fret Saw, though when its came to this size (of blade) it called Piersing Saw.  And they are mainly used by the fine metal work = Jewelry making. (The advantage of this saw against the other Bow saw or Fret Saw is, its bow can change the size = broken blade can be used as a half-length blade, and smaller size can do much finer cut.  On top of that, the universal clump can be used with any kind / length (Max 16 cm — if it was too long = just brake it to a half) of blade.)

I knew this tool rather long time though, since I acquainted with a jeweler friend, I’ve been thinking to visit where he has been working (and do a shopping where he is buying his tool) = Hatton Garden area in London where is the center of the diamond and the jewelry trade.  —– though, visiting somebody kind of plan always get delay —– often ages.   First, give a call to find the suitable timing, before that I need to find the exact address etc etc = I’ll do one-day, one-day.

When I did rather miserable work with improvised Spiral Saw Blade to cut a lens cap, my patience has run-out.   Don’t dream a happy visit.  Just get on the job = get the Tool I need. —– So, I got it from the Net. (As I paid cheapest price, the saw blade came with 1/0 ~ 6/0 size were in fact all in the same size — still usable.)   😀

And, they did a work in the amazing efficiency as I expected.  (£15 was a worth to spend)   😀

Leiz Elmarit P Lens on Nikon Z7

While checking a corner of the shelf, I found a Leiz Elmarit projection lens I got from odds and ends box of a camera shop years ago —– in fact it was the same time when I found the Zeiss Taron lens in the same box for £1 each.  To make Taron lens for ordinary camera use I did quite a lot of work —– and to make a helicoid for this Leiz lens, even more work was anticipated.   Then, when I got a 58mm reverse adapter ring for  Nikon Z, I got other idea to modify this Leiz lens easily.

Since its rivers adapter got 58mm screw, I found it could be used to mount a helicoid extension ring  M58 to M58 mount, 24mm ~ 55mm extension, together with some joint rings to connect to Leiz lens.

Nik Z-58mm, Helicoid ring, 58mm-52mm, K4 and K5 from old Nikon K-ring (having 52mm screw), 52mm-49mm, then put the Elmarit P lens on it. = no cutting or glue work, just put together.  So, here is the Leiz Elmarit P 50mm F2.8 for shooting on Nikon Z7 use.  (Note, helicoid ring was mounted riverse direction and the infinity focus was made while helicoid was slightly rotated position.)

Projection lens may be designed for close range use = may not have the best result on far subject.  And the test picture showed rather funny off-focus bokeh on the fore-ground.

elmarit(4)p-001

Still not too bad result for closest distance (23cm) and its out of focus bokeh was very smooth and soft here —– any way, Leiz Elmarit lens 50 mm F2.8  costed £1 + some odd rings. 

elmarit-p-50mm f2.8-dsc_0204 I like a subtlety created by the clean image as well.  Leiz is good in cool image. Unlike Sony, Nikon Z doesn’t exaggerates the tone.
