Lazy Sundays and Falling In Love

…..with the 35mm f/2 Canon SSC “Radioactive” thorium coated lens. It is entirely possible to fall in love with a chunk of glass and metal. Running this lens on my Sony’s with a Metabones FD/E speedbooster has made this my total go to lens for just about everything. Environmental portraits, perfect! Interiors and detail architecture, perfect! Semi-wide skies where you need some speed, perfect!


Decent resolving power on the text for a 35+ year old lens ; )


Shot at f/2. Super creamy bokeh that to me is still under control.



Some pretty interesting warm light from the right thanks to some of the fall aspens reflecting the sunlight back through the window. Left side is just straight daylight. Defintely a high contrast lens with a bit of warmth thanks to the yellowing of the glassĀ  by the thorium coatings.
