And the lens is?

No great artistic claims but taken at lunchtime today at f4 with a nice new (old) goodie that arrived in the post and minimal processing. I rather like the 3D rendering myself - anyone care to take a guess at what lens it is?

OK here's a few:

It has the same number of lens elements as it has aperture blades.

It cost me almost as much in pounds as it's age in years. Which was a fair price.

This shot isn't taken at either its maximum aperture or closest focusing distance.

Not even close. Here's another clue:

There's a reason there isn't much in the exif info, and it's not that I've deleted it.

K35 f3.5 ?

Do we win the lens if we get it right?
Lurking is shirking.!

Only if I drop it. And I would have been a lot closer if I took it with the 35.

Stuey was right on the aperture blades. So no, not the 40.

Freezing. And for another clue, the Sigma doesn't hasn't have an SMC coating either.

Here's another image then, taken a few minutes after the first shot and also f4 with the same lens. Now the clue: it was f4 because DOF was far too shallow wide open.

And a last clue with an image before I'm off to bed.

Just before the daffodils this little beauty was all on its own growing wild in the grass. Wide open it shows the dreamy quality I bought the lens for - it should be good for portraits (hint,hint) if I actually get the focus right.
