The more I use this lens the more I like it. Remarkably sharp for such a simple optic. As I understand it, it is a simple dialyte (4 element) with early coatings. Used with a helicoid adapter it becomes a pretty good macro.


crop


Missed focus on the eye by about a mm! Still it works pretty well.

The Tessar 40/4.5 lens works pretty well for macro too.

I have several tessars but not the 40mm. Might have to seek one out.

Yep. I like it since many years and have quite a few of them. Amazing little lens gem!

There are also Helioplan enlarger lenses, which are also quite impressive.

135mm in that conical enlarger mount? Haven't seen that one yet...
There are however such large format lenses in alu/black barrel.

I have one, but I have not used it. I would be curious to see how you adapt it to your camera.
If possible. Very Happy

I keep going back to this lens. I was trying to capture the gorgeous lavender color of the artichoke blooms when a bee flew into the frame.


the crop: the wind was pretty good so there is a bit of motion blur.










I still haven't got around to trying the 105 4.5.
