My recent return to Pentax K mount has included the rediscovery of the excellent Ricoh Rikenon 50mm f/2 lens.
I featured it as my latest love in the Lens Love series a little while back, and it fared very well against stiff competition from Pentax and Chinon in the recent five way PK 50mm shootout.
In particular the Rikenon’s performance wide open at f/2 has delighted me.
So I got to thinking about a series of adventures and hopefully a few memorable photographs as a result, all shoot close up and wide open.
These are the highlights of the first adventure.
All photographs in this post were made with my Sony NEX 3N with the Rikenon 50/2 at f/2, plus a LightRoom preset.
More adventures of the Wide Eyed Wonder to follow…
Thanks for reading. Please share this post with others you feel will enjoy it too.
