The last time we went there was a few years ago. Today, Dillon and I decided to visit it and I wanted to test out the Ilex 80mm f1.3 a bit more and see what kind of pictures I can get with more colours.
Let's just say that this lens was not created for beautiful bokeh, but the pictures are kind of different. Some actually came out OK, but I won't use it for any pictures with busy backgrounds. In fact, I probably won't be using much any more. I hate lenses with ugly bokeh.
A word on the helicoid that this lens is attached to. It's not one of the best made focusing helicoids. It already has a lot of play and wobbles a little, after only a light amount of use. It's really too bad as I planned to buy a longer one, but I will have to wait and see.
