Quite impressive Klaus. I suspect this is much less expensive than the Coastal Optics UV-vis-IR apo!

Am I right in thinking this is the EL-Nikkor enlarger lens?

Indeed, I think that photographers miss out on more by carrying too much than by keeping it simple. Particularly if you are interested in photographing people or things that move!

Dawid

Hi Maris,

I appreciate this. In this picture I appreciate the very dark rendering of the blue sky, that often irritates in in some black and white work. Perhaps it's the otherworldly appearance...

Hi Asher,

Not sure we're really disagreeing here. I deliberately separated the notion of fidelity/truth/indexicality from that of digital/chemical recording and output. As ever there is a range of...
