Spiratone 105mm f2.5

The lens – I’ve never seen one of these before. I like the 75-105mm focal length for close up photos like portraits and detail shots. I didn’t expect to find a lens this nice for just a few dollars at a thrift store, but this one is very clean, and seems very well made.

Test shots. I believe all of these are wide open at f=2.5.

This shot is at the closest focus distance, and the background is almost at infinity (sun coming through far away trees).

I’m not sure how easy it is to¬†find one of these, but if you do, I recommend it.
