Meyer Optik Görlitz Oreston 50mm f/1.8 Zebra

One more with the Meyer Optik Görlitz Oreston 50mm f/1.8 Zebra lens. It rained all day but I had to get out for a minute and shot this while wandering a bit before the rain forced me home again.

The Oreston is not a likely landscape lens. Its just not known for the sharpness normally associated with landscape photography. It's more of an 'Art' lens. It's somewhat sharp through the middle apertures and known to be a bit soft wide open. Possibly a good portrait lens considering those characteristics. It also has wonderful color and a unique bokeh.

So when it rained all day and I was thinking about shooting something, I thought maybe with the rain already providing a mood of its own that possibly the Oreston might make a good image with that. I think it did ok. What do you think?

f8, 1/160th sec, ISO 100
