Wonderful to see these lenses in action! I have all these too now sitting somewhere in cabinets, always liked them!!

PS: The Staeble Lineogon 35mm carries a secret: it is the same optics as the Noveflex Noflexar 35mm, since Staeble was
the lens supplier for company Novoflex!

I've got the tiny ISCO Westron lens in Paxette mount as well. Surprisingly quite a solid performer also in comparison to other more modern 35mm lenses.
Maybe I should remove the dust and use it again. Wink

Splendid samples. There is also Ultra Lithagon 3.5/28mm available for Paxette.

Nice promenade of such wide glass.

I use the Staeble Choro 38/3,5 for my infrared converted Fuji (where it is not a wide angle any more).

For example

And then, the Staeble Choro mounted on my Fuji X-A1 looks very cute. Perfect design. Tuzki with lens

That BW looks pretty. Like normal lens suits well, indeed. Are you using some wide angle on that Fuji?

All Staeble wide angles are not wide angles any more when used on the Fuji.

As wide angle I use the Nikkor 18/3,5 AI-S, which I have for the Nikon FF anyway, but that lens is too big, and I wouldn't use it on Fuji if it were not for infrared, because the Zooms and the Fuji 18/2 fail when used in infrared.

I got Staeble 85 and I would like more from Paxette but in M39.
Still haven't figured out different Paxette types with different types of mounts

There might be even more mounts. See here.

The Choro is my favourite.

Pancolart, I've only ever heard of the Ultra Lithagon 28mm on forums such as this. Never seen one and there appears to be nothing said about it in any of the Braun literature. Mind you the Lithagon 35mm isn't mentioned either, yet here is one.

Enna and the other makers made so many for so many systems. I'm trying to make a list of lenses made for interchangeable lens rangefinders. I find forums and facebook groups a great resource.

A nice collection. I am listing Paxette lenses at the moment. I've found 34 so far out of the reputed 42 available!
