Flektagon 35mm f2.4

This lens has amazing close focusing abilities. The above image was taken just a few inches away from the cake, at wide open aperture of f2.4 using the Canon 30D. The sharpness, resolution power and colour rendition is A+.

What you see in this photo is the exact image with no major post processing except for resizing and a minor USM for web display.

This is among the best lens for 35mm in M42 mount.
