Re: What is your most recent (alt) lens purchase?


Hi,

I picked up this pair of SSC black-nose/chrome mount ring lenses while at the Reno Air Races last week, from a private sale in Sparks. The 35mm f2 is the concave (thorium-doped) version, slightly amber but easily color-balanced out in LR. Very sharp-contrasty wide open on the NEX and OM-D. The 85mm f1.8 holds its' own also, making this a very nice walk-around combo. Looking forward to a nice FF mirror-less surfacing in the next year or so for these to mate up with. Coming home soon; an FDn 100mm f2 from my "pawn-shop crawl" that needed a CLA (internal dust & dried-up lubricant), but for 65.00 USD, it was a bargain.
