    I think I may get some use out of this glass that I bought from @pixmedic. I have sharper glass but I like the way this draws and the color is pretty darn nice as well. I am no expert on glass but it seems to me that these lower count element lenses are very unique. It will be interesting to see what it does with Christmas light shots on a tripod. Anyway, here are some samples from today. Mounted on Fujifilm XT2, shot wide open.

    1. Lamp shade. Custom chrome simulation.

    2. Custom Velvia. Need to dial it back a little with this lens.

    Twenty aperture blades is rather unique as well. Wait until you start getting circular bokeh instead of polygons.

    Yup, I was hoping to see that today but it is dark and gloomy today, snow coming.

    Hmmm, screw mount Soviet glass. Appears to be a good example.

    It may not be screw mount. Mine is T-mount.

    It's not the sharpness as much as the delicate softness, I like it!

    It's setup for m42 but I think The mount originally. I added a $8 m42 to X mount adapter.

    Yeah. My Phoenix/Samyang 500mm mirror lense is 42 but came with an FD adapter.
    I'm on the lookout for cheap 42 mount lenses.
