Hi folks, after a few years of excellent help on this forum, I'm just starting now to get some decent results, and I want to share one image.

This was taken with a Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar 50/2.8 王 lens on a Fuji X Pro1 in Paradise Valley AZ.

If anyone wants to see what the lens looks like, I've also included a picture below.

It is interesting that I liked the results from this lens than the Sonnar 1.5, that I have three versions of, but I really have to shoot better daylight samples.

tints are over saturate. Why?

Unfortunately, the lens picture doesn't show Twisted Evil So i still don't know what's so special about this lens. In my opinion You botched the color correction of the pictures, colors are way too saturated and that even in the "normal" version. So i wouldn't call this a good advertisement for your "mystery lens" Wink

I had no idea there was a group for saturated colour. I'm not on Facebook, but I'd be interested to know if they stretch to Kodachrome. I take it Velvia isn't saturated enough, so I'm guessing Kodachrome isn't either.

I guess this is the image of the lens: https://www.google.com/search?q=https://sgwproductimages.azureedge.net/8/1-27-2020/640585227114639tber.JPG&client=firefox-b-d&sxsrf=ACYBGNQd5-Edt2vnEmafdQltRdnKIvCjLA:1581775518625&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=Qa_SYhj7-eBz1M%253A%252C_-FH9HWtGQTVvM%252C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kQA0IaRTg6L9Yeg0ZaqmX1_eVgJhw&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwitrpv_3NPnAhVJxoUKHVflCBsQ9QEwAHoECAIQBQ#imgrc=kQ6-Drumh6QSAM

These images may have photography as a base, but processed like this they are no photo's any more. Here is a sample of what a Tessar can do when you do not overprocess it.
