I must second Brett's praise of the MC 58/1.4 lens. It is one of my go-to lenses, both for film on the SRT102 and via adapter on the SRT's great-grandson, the Sony a7. I use the lens less frequently...

We can't even make that generalization about MLU. According to the Rokkor files entry on the 102 (http://www.rokkorfiles.com/SRT%20Series.htm#a102), not all 102 bodies had MLU. Mine is living proof,...

This has at times been a lively thread. Anyone?

Cape Florida Light, Door Detail. SRT102 + TMax 400. Tragically, my notes omit what lens this was, but I had only the 58/1.4 and 28/3.5 with me, so it...

Ohhhhh. I've got the older version (1966, according to that site) with the larger 67 mm front. Fortunately the normal lens (75 mm) on my Bronica S2 also takes 67 mm, as does the 35 f/2 Super Takumar...

I've got one as well, a few months ago. Nice lens as far as I can tell in limited shooting so far. (Seemingly none of my pics made with it are on my flickr; I'll need to rectify that.) I suppose the...

A few tests from the test roll with the MC Rokkor 85/1.7 (which arrived the day before the snowstorm in the eastern USA last week). OOF areas seem nice. First real production roll is still in the...

Brilliant! It looks almost new. Mine came with that standard 50/1.7 as well. I've hardly used it, favoring the 58/1.4 non-"X" Rokkor. I keep meaning to do a rigorous, controlled comparison shoot...

Nicely done, Dan. I looked for a hood while I was ordering the lens on KEH, and didn't find the anatomically correct one. I suppose any hood that screws onto 55mm threads and is for a shorter lens...

85!

Well, I was buying SRT kit bottom-feeder wise (garden-variety lenses at $15 - $50 at a time). Now I am committed to this system: After a frustrating outing shooting a concert where I could not get...

Sonically stealthy maybe, but visually not so much. It stands out like Darth Vader with a monocle!

Eventually someone will have to get together this lens, an adapter, and a a7 to see if it can fit...

But the SRT is not a rangefinder, so I presume one just zone-focuses/guesstimates with the 21? It seems like the DOF on so wide a lens would have everything between your nose and Mars in focus...

+1 re: the 58/1.4; nice lens. I very luckily got mine and a 28/3.5 (same vintage; scalloped heavy metal) for $67 + postage. Some screws missing on the 58 as I've posted above, but so far it has not...

@Dan: Thanks for that; I did see the BGN 2.8s for those prices at KEH and was tempted. (You can even get mint ones elsewhere for about $75.) Glad to hear you've had good experience with it. I have a...

35/1.8 price ... good grief (http://www.shopgoodwill.com/viewItem.asp?ItemID=15192734). So ... for those of us with 1.8 sticker shock: how's the 35/2.8, other than obviously about 1.3 stop slower?...

Hi all. As I posted recently, I've got that new SRT-102. Not pictured with it above is an MC Rokkor PF 58/1.4 that I also acquired. It is missing two of the four screws that hold the bayonet mount...

I am stoked at the arrival of my first SRT (below). With that 50/1.7, it cost me just USD 16 (plus almost as much again in shipping cost, unfortunately). It arrived as seen below; I have done no...
