May I suggest a Leitax mount is the most appropriate for this beauty?



I didn't know Leitax made Fuji X or Sony NEX mounts... I ordered a Novoflex.

Oops! I figured you were putting it on a DSLR.

Leitax does have Leica-R for X and E, and so it's only a matter of time.

I picked up the Sigma 30mm Art for my a77. IMO it's the most underrated lens out there. For around $550 you get an unbelievably beautiful lens.

Nikkor 24/2.8 AIS in great condition for use on A7 and on GH4 for video. Took a few snaps today on A7 and looks pretty good across the frame at f/4 and f/5.6.

yeah, i always hated that about rokkors and olympus OM lenses. if you feel like modding it, you can actually remove the aperture ring (don't lose that ball bearing!) and file a notch or two into it for an extra click stop or two between f/1.7 and f/2.8.

i just got a jupiter-9 (terrible build but beautiful painterly look):










and i've been missing the unique look and small size of the olympus pen f 42/1.2 that i sold recently, so i picked up a beater copy to use for portraits and funky stuff. unfortunately, it has a bit of fungus growing around the edges i'll have to see if i can take care of:





it does a much better job of simulating the petzval look on my a7 than the recent lens designed to be a fake petzval :

Cool. The 42 does a much better job covering the frame than the 25 did. Did you have to crop any?

I like the vignetting. It suits the overall draw very well.

I added a couple of Zeiss lenses, a C/Y Distagon 35/2.8 and a Hasselblad S-Planar 135/5.6.

I bought a Zeiss/Contax Distagon 28mm f2 MMG on eBay this morning, to go with yesterday's 21mm f2.8 MMJ. I'm hoping I have better luck with these lenses and the Novoflex adapter than I did trying to use my ZE lenses on the Metabones...

...a new lens and the 2nd best use for a beer cooler...

I thought my experience may be useful to those using this lens...

So I got the highly rated Tamron sp90/2.5 in a Nikon mount and I was surprised at the amount of flare....
I slipped a paper towel roll over the end and could see that if it were long enough it would cut out the flare completely
I immediately got a hood, a long Takumar used on a 200mm lens but that wasn't long enough...soooooo....
I slipped a beer cooler over the hood as an extension, and all is right with the world.

No hood







Hood only







Hood with extension



















The test scene







Drank the Guinness and look forward to taking the lens out for some real shots...
