I think you mean Domiron, Mike. Domiplan is easy, this 2.8/50 is available in abundance. I don't know how well you fare in the handcrafted steering wheel business, but to get a decent Domiron you have to be prepared to pay through the nose.

Arghhh, dammit, yes, Domiron. Obviously, I have cheap on the mind. I'm aware they are super rare and super expensive. Of course, I'll never buy one for over $200    
Although, I just hit a new record high price I paid for the Trioplan. That was over $300. Have you seen Leonon images? It would be interesting to compare.

My steering wheels do okay. Only problem is I can't produce them quick enough to become wealthy. Lempert Wheels
Need one?

I've seen your beauties Mike. My modern car doesn't take one, too many functions in the wheel. But if I ever strike it rich (the odds are very much against that) I get myself some classic wheels and then I come looking for a bespoke wheel!

And now for the great Domiron/Oreston shoot out. I'm a fan of zebras but the Domiron is the most stylish lens I have ever seen. 1-0 for the Domiron.

Domiron 2/50 (1960, Exakta) and Oreston 1.8/50 (1966, M42)


6 years apart, apparently the same lens design (6 lenses in 4 groups), the Oreston marginally faster. But are they the same? Therefore a trip to the field. There is a marginal difference in focal length and in color rendering (that I corrected with the color picker for white balance) but this might as well be because I used A7Riv and A7iii. Other than that the images are very much the same. Look for yourself.

Domiron at the coneflower bed

Camera Model: ILCE-7RM4
Exposure Time: 0.003 sec (1/400)
ISO: 100

Oreston at the coneflower bed

Camera Model: ILCE-7M3
Exposure Time: 0.002 sec (1/500)
ISO: 100

The conclusion is fairly simple. For every Domiron you can buy 10 Orestons, for the image it doesn't matter which one you use. My take. One Domiron in the hand is worth 10 Orestons in the bush.

Very nice picture - both times you took it.

They do look remarkably similar, Paul. Stop them both down to f/8 and there will be no difference. But that's true of just about all lenses.

I'm a fan of the Oreston. However, I think if you experiment more with distances, both before the subject and after, you will start to see bigger differences. In fact, I'd recommend backing up slightly and then cropping for the composition you want. If that Domiron is as much like my Leonon as I think it could be, you might discover very interesting bokeh.

Yes Mike, at F/8 they are mostly the same. I'll have another go at comparing when the sun is out, a rare occasion in the Low Lands this 'summer'. I'll try lens swopping on the same body next time, that takes the camera 'out of the picture'.

That Domiron looks like fun. Tell me if you don't think the rendering is remarkably much like this: Leonon

Hard to tell Mike. It is a pleasantly rendering lens though, certainly a lively one.

Your bridge shots never bore me Paul.
Nice to have such a subject nearby (if at work).
The lock with bycicles has e good bokeh too.
