Indoor Test of Rokinon 12mm f2 Lens
Lens: Rokinon 12mm f/2 1/25sec, ISO-400, EV -0.6
I wanted to test the Rokinon 12mm f/2.0 NCS CS Lens indoors - close up on a challenging subject. I chose the 1973-vintage Technics SA-8000X Quadraphonic tube-amplified receiver as a subject, due to the challenging metal, glass and internal display lights.
Due to the 12mm lens (35mm equivalent-18mm), the camera was just 16 inches from the component. The room was darkened, but natural light flowed from an adjacent open room. Still, reflections can be seem. Focusing took some trail & error.
There was no 'post' editing performed on this photograph.
