M-Rokkor 40/2 lens
This photo was taken with one of my favorite lenses - the M-Rokkor 40/2 CLE lens which is very similar in size and image quality to the Leica Summicron pre-asph v4 35/2 lens. I've had 4 samples of this lens including the CL and QF versions (s/n on front of lens) which may have different coatings than the CLE version (s/n on barrel), and have always preferred using these with the metal 40.5 wide hoods from Heavystar. The camera used was the Epson RD1s. Settings were ISO 400, 1/24th second, f5.6 or f8. Converted to red filtered b&w in Picasa.
