Just for fun. An auxiliary wide angle with the front element reversed, mounted on a Miranda 1.9/50 lens. Quite interesting how abruptly the swirl transitions into a sort of zoom-blur effect.

Seems that you've made lens that behaves as petzval lenses with busy backrounds at the large format. Smile

You could sell it to lomographers for serious money Laughing

Joking, the effect is really interesting.

This lens was made from the front section of a Nikkor-O 55/1.2 (rear glass missing) and the rear half of a Leica 5cm F1.5 Summarit- both parts lenses missing glass.

Wide-open on the Olympus EP2.

@ Mos6502 That bike photo looks pretty cool!

Earlier today I was experimenting with a Cyclop 85mm f\1.2 with the rear element removed and I also noticed a similar effect.
