Thanks Paul! I can't recall any bubbles with the Primotar 3.5/50mm from my own shots too.

Here a shroom with the Kinon Superior F=5cm


A few more in the Fungi thread

Nice, Fred. In the right circumstances, there are several lenses that can soap bubble. I now have 100mm Trioplan but have yet used it to good effect.

The Kinon is a wonderful lens. I always enjoy the results when I use it.

Thanks Mike!

For this shot the circumstances were perfect for bubbles with many sunlight spots reflecting in the moving water. With a bit of wind however, it was a challenge to capture the grass in good position and looking through the view finder almost made me nauseous with all the moving soap bubbles

To my own surprise I recently stumbled upon a low priced Domiron in excellent condition and had not to think twice. The glass was perfect too, apart from one tiny dust spot inside which I could tidy up within minutes. Hence now also have the pleasure, like Paul, to be able to shoot with this rare Meyer beauty

First results:


"Autumn foliage"

"'upside down"

Low priced Domiron, how about that! I stumbled across a reasonably priced Mino RF 250 (reasonable, not low!). Been wanting one for years, I have high hopes for donuts.

Good images Michael! Upside down really plays tricks with the mind.

I never find those kind of "barn finds", congrats Michael. The bokeh shows well in the autumn foliage but I think "upside down" is a real clever shot that makes you look twice or more.
You can see the April Foolishness 2021 exhibition here Another great show of the talent we have on Dyxum

Paul: Congratulations on finding a relatively cheap 250mm. That's a great mirror and one that has evaded my affordability. I got hooked on mirrors back around 2017 after avoiding them for over 40 years. This has nothing to do with Meyer (another favorite) but since you brought it up, here's my mirror album - all images tagged.   Mirror Album

I'm well aware of your mirror endeavours Mike, magical stuff. I was pondering to get me a modern AF 500/8 but eventually decided for a RF 500 friend for the RF 250. Manual focus with modern cameras is so easy. Perhaps one day, when I win the lottery, I'll get me a RF 800 to complete the set. But I recon that is more a telescope than a photography tool.

I never tried the RF 500 but as you may have seen, I do have the AF Reflex. It works okay with the LA-EA4 AF adapter but I'm thinking of doing the MonsterAdapter modification which will allow the camera to do the focusing. Much better!

The Vectis 400 is a wonderful mirror in the same quality class as the 250. The 800mm, I'm not so sure. The white one seems the better of the two. If you ever want to share mirror talk or seek info on any of mine, feel free to contact me.

The 500 Af works well with the LA-EA5, but only the central AF points can be used.
