|Canon MR 2.4/24 is a small lens without aperture and focusing mechanism. I ignore its original destination. Reproduction? Microfilm? Aesthetically it looks pretty cool, with its blue band. Put on a Sony Nex camera with help of a helicoid and a piece of black foam.
The register distance is just for having past infinity and up to 5cm. It works well on APS-C, giving a slight vignette which is almost imperceptible in many cases and only adds some character. It must be a true 24mm. And the IQ is pretty amazing. In general it assimilates with a Leitz Repro Summar 24mm, but has a higher general contrast and more vivid colours.
All shots are slightly corrected with autocontrast or contrast boost.
#7 MFD with a 17-32mm Chinese helicoid
I like it a lot!
