A power house pairing. No benchwarmer 1:1.4 Yashica and a EOS T3i/600D.

A Yashica Yashinon-DS 50mm 1:1.4 paired w/a EOS 600D. It really has a nice orange tint/glow that makes it magical in its appearance. Today, I shot a few indoor raw JPEG shots inside a doll house with Skylanders Spyro's Adventure and Skylanders Giants figurine characters. I shot at around ISO 800, f/16, neutral picture style, white fluorescent light, exposure compensation +1 and without a tripod. I realized today I need to purchase the MeFoto tripod right away. No editing was done to these photos. Straight from the belly of the EOS 600D.

Shots wide open on this lens is incredibly sharp and rich in detail. I can't wait to repair the aperture ring and shoot at f/1.4. I can only dream when that heavenly day comes. Will be doing more testing throughout the week. This was only an indoor studio shot in my basement but I am going to take it outside later this week in the day and night to really see how this lens truly performs. Therefore, this lens is a great bargain basement lens for portraits, product photography and a general 'nifty-fifty' walk around lens. A nice purchase lens indeed.
