85 PC examples?

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Beezle, Sep 25, 2005.

  1. I am finding it tough to find very many example images taken with the 85 2.8 PC lens.

    Very few on Pbase. A couple here and there. I noticed one here. A couple on Bjorn's site. The examples on Pbase are actually very interesting. They look like shots of miniatures, but are actually images of full size subjects.

    I am trying to discern the real possibilities beyond just being sharp and being capable of close in work. Those are probably enough to cause me to buy the lens, though.

    Anyone have any examples?

    I see myself using this lens for some macro, but also studio still life and portrait shots. I want to be able to, for example, tilt the focal plane so that when the camera is aimed at around 45 degrees to a flat surface (e.g. on the floor), I can increase the amount of that surface that falls in the DOF.
