Showing the bubbly and swirly character of the wide open lens.

Very nice examples, Paul. I love the mushrooms and the pencil shot is very interesting and captured perfectly.

A few more from the Primoplan, I'm using an Exakta to Leica and the Voigtlander close focus adapter. Trioplan on the way, can't wait!

Wonderful Tony. Which Trioplan, 50 or 100?

I should have copied the image titles but I was lazy. The pencil is actually agave but I admit if I had to guess I would say pencil too.

The 100. I would prefer 50, but hard to find here at a reasonable cost, and I have too many fifties and it is. Should have it in hand on Monday, disappointed that I won't have it for the weekend.

Nice, but surely the 100mm is beyond reasonable cost? The Primoplan is a superior lens anyway (IMHO) and can produce the same wonderful soap.

I hadn't noticed that you live only a couple of hours from me.

Superior? I don't know. Modern lenses are superior, but we like the old ones for their quirks (the soap was designed out of lenses for a reason, at the time it was not appreciated). Anyway, Primoplan and Trioplan soap and image rendering is very different and I like both varieties equally.

Love Charleston, hope you made out okay during the hurricane!

When I last looked, I couldn't find a 50 here in the states on eBay and didn't want to deal with overseas for a relatively expensive item. I probably overpaid for the 100, but I'm satisfied with what it cost.
