First image posted with a new-to-me (secondhand) lens. Not much PP beyond boosting the contrast a little and adding a vignette. Any guesses?

No idea on the lens but it has very limited DOF and I like the bokeh!

Lovely shot BTW

Nice image - the "ghost" flowers behind are superb - is it a Flektogon 35mm

Getting closer in terms of focal length but not quite there yet!….

Superb picture - composition, colours, background are spot on. It deserves to be hanging on a wall in a gallery.

As for guessing the lens, that sort of thing is way beyond me. But with results like that, I presume you won't be parting with it any time soon...

The out of focus area is very interesting, in a good way. I have no idea about lenses but for fun I'll guess Lensbaby Sweet Spot

So not to prolong this, taken with a Sigma 30/1.4 Art lens recently purchased from LCE. I'd love the 31 Ltd of course (who wouldn't) but I think I'm going to really enjoy this lens. It'll be going to theatre rehearsals this weekend, so will see how it does in that environment; I have a suspicion that I may need to use MF rather than AF - the latter is a little pedestrian, which is more to do with the lens than the camera I think.

Whatever the lens, the result speaks for your use of it.
