| p.95 #14 · What is your most recent (alt) lens purchase? |
I got yesterday a cheap Mitutoyo APO microscopy lens with a ding (that is sold currently new for >2000 Euro), a Novoflex 35mm/3.5 macro lens and a Isco Westagon 50mm/1.9 (focus nearly stuck).
The Novoflex macro has a brilliant near focus mechanics: It has a helicoid and additional one can extend it with a kind of snapping mechanics. All this in a small build barrel.
This is one of the lenses with good UV and IR capabilities, while not made for this.
PC Distagon 35 2,8

Planar 50 1,7
Planar 50 1,4 (on the Contax 167MT)
Ah, this is the Contax set you bought - very nice! The PC-Distagon is very interessting!
Not so alternative, but I managed to convert a Rokinon 35mm in 4/3 mount to Canon mount. Nobody wanted to buy the d@mn thing
Congratulations! Up to know I didnīt find cheap Samyang lenses (85,35,24) for some testing purpose - searched every mount, cause I thought It could not be very hard to convert to EF.
