OK here it is:



Kilfitt 90/3.5 Macro.
note two focus rings...

It's a fairly sweet thing of course



but it screws in half so:



Canon LTM RF 85/1.8 on the kilfitt focus tube.

But first I wanted to try my Canon LTM RF 50/1.2

and screwed it on there-- I was loking for the bokeh Smile

I was pretty excited, so all shots you see are handheld





these are not crops, how close was I? Here is a gross but effective way to show (my thumb)


again no crop, but smaller so nobody throws up. Smile

How about the 85 shown above?









teeny flowers, but how close?




I was shooting HANDHELD wide open at about 400 iso to get a fast shutter speed. I think it's pretty obvious some very respectable captures could be made with a tripod and really good focus.

anyway revelation to me Smile

Here is the little 90 in the wild:



That's with the small hood attached (which I have also)

This is 1954

The 90 as used by grace kelly is quite light, very well built, with the outer lens the general shape of a Jupiter 8, but with touches like the rubberised grips on the helicoids--poor photo above sry.

I was curious so I took it out today



100






These do have some mild PP. Subtract 20% black.

It's a low overall contrast, but seems to resolve detail quite well, which is good for me because I am often shooting scenses with too much contrast.
