Branches, twigs, geometrical lines, strong highlights... anything that easily prevents smoothness.

Can't remember that I ever saw a 2.8/105mm Xenon - could you show the lens?

I took some pictures for this lens, the len is heavy nearly 800grams, front glass condition not so good, but it used to work on USA military missle tracing system. Now the lens was mounted on M42 helicord, the closest focus distance is about 0.50-0.60M.

That's a very nice lens but it's a Xenotar, not Xenon!

Presumably you bought this from "labgeartrader" on Evilbay? Maybe not.

How did the lens mount to the helicoid? Presumably it has an M42 thread but if not then which thread or mount does this lens have?

Are you geting infinity focus with the helicoid setup that you are using?

I've been looking at picking up one of these lenses for a while, maybe a 100/2.8 or 150/2.8, but they are almost always in poor condition. Your 105/2.8 looks quite nice.

No, it was not a M42 lens as tje name Photosonics implies. This was a special high speed camera which had its own specific Photosonics mount.
