|Well, sort of mixed results. but happy for the bigger part.
I didn't have the light meter so I had to do with the Sunny 16. Managed quite well ableit perhaps a bit on the too bright (since I was shooting negative, I guessed exposure for the shadows).
It took a few shots to figure out the rangefinder (it is not perfectly aligned vertically). Also I could not go to Parma so I had to committ the roll to the local lab, whose scans are near to awful.
Never the less, I got some interesting results mixed in with the garbage I am especially enthusiast the fingerprint of the Sonnar 1.5/50. The Jupiter-9 is very sharp and has maybe a better bokeh than the reflex version. The Sonnar 2/50 seems to be a bit flarish, but I did use it without the hood.
Here's a few samples from the 1.5/50 Sonnar. The other lenses, maybe, later. I link to oversize gallery because we are subject to the limit here:
