|Because folks from Leicashop Vienna gotta eat too, right? As you may feel not really cheap but couldn't resist.
OMG, just pardon my oodles of Planar chromatic aberrations here
Apart from that the lens is totally cute and well crafted, I love the oldie rendering at superfast wideopen 1930s/40s oldie aperture along w/ minimal or nonexistent coatings
I guess this to be my second Exa prototype (along w/ some other somewhat limited items), and 3rd Askania branded material after two pretty similar projection "sissies" - Askinar 110mm and 120mm that I am selling anyway for a flip as I kinda dislike projection lenses
Could have started a little companys' corner though, as I kinda by blind luck acquired a limited CZJ Sonnar 50/1.5 originally made for one of those prehistoric Askania cameras...
Sorry for long time no see, I've been busy living. Have fun investing
Angry young man !
