Nope, it's close focus - but not a macro lens

Keep trying

Folks clamour after new fast glass but there is such an abundance of magic, beauty and capability in classic heirloom glass and it's just wonderful to own, even for the simple joy of ownership.

Whatever the lens is, the image you created with it is beautiful.

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

Vivitar 28mm 2.8 Close Focus? It's about the only one I can think of with 'Close Focus' in the title.

Or the beautiful Voigtlander you've up for sale with the Close Focus attachment...

Thank You Defrgged - and yes, some of the older glass has such character and great optical qualities that are so satisfying to create images with. I consider my very fortunate to have owned almost every lens that I've wanted to use over the years, and if my lens collection consisted of 3 or 4 older lenses (including this one) I wouldn't be disappointed

Sorry Benz3ne - it's neither of those lenses, and although it doesn't have "close focus" in it's name it is known for the fact that it focuses below 20cm

Hmm...I'm struggling to tell how wide it is, given the closeness of the subjects... Perhaps a 50mm rather than the other two guess I made?

Irrespective, I'm itching to find out! It looks a beauty...

P.s. M42 or PK?
P.p.s. I've followed you on Flickr

Argggh I was going to say a Flek.

I noticed how close the focus was on mine the other day.

Lovely shots I love my old Pentax manual lenses. One of my all-time favorites is the SMC M 50mm 1.7 paid ten pounds for. Works great on both the Kr and I00 D cameras.
