Not unusable, 25mm sounds like a good lens for a Samsung NX mini.

Pity you have a challenged seller Mike. Perhaps the deal was too good to be true.

Leo is your friend

Kinon 35 is APS-C, another great swirler!

Quinon must be a great lens; all Steinheils starting with Qui- are excellent but expensive. I don't have any of them you gotta draw the line somewhere.


A friend bought a 25mm, which seems unusable. We may have discovered the limits.

Nice, Paul. I'd imagine that the farther out you focus, the smaller the image circle. As it looks now, I'm not likely to get the 35mm version that I bought on eBay. The seller seems challenged to understand how to complete the deal.

So, for my first Meyer shot of the year I have a new member of the family: Hugo Meyer & Co. Görlitz Kinon III f=3.5 cm. Here pictured with its big brother Hugo Meyer & Co Görlitz Kinon Superior I 1:1.6 f=5 cm , both from 1930s 16 mm film projectors (Siemens and Bauer Pantalux respectively).

1: Negative buoyancy Kinons

Camera Model: ILCE-7
Lens: Ihagee Anastigmat Exaktar 1:3,5/5,4cm for Kine Exakta (1930s) at f/3.5, a rebadged Hugo Meyer Primotar
Aperture: 3.5
Exposure Time: 0.017 sec (1/60)
ISO: 2000

As can be seen it does not cover the APSC sensor, but I'm used to black corners and think this is perfectly OK, although I think it is slightly decentered due to gravity. The Exakta removable lens mount I use does not tightly fit the M42 adapter that I converted to receive Exakta mounts at the front.

2: Heleborus with a swirl

Camera Model: ILCE-7RM2
Lens: Hugo Meyer & Co. Görlitz Kinon III f=3.5 cm
Aperture:
Exposure Time: 0.004 sec (1/250)
ISO: 100

Rear diameter is 20mm. I don't know what projector it was used for. I would never think twice for $18; I paid $36 for mine, and considered that a bargain.

A Kinon for $18 only?? Sounds like a good deal

I had long wondered and finally came across one that was affordable. Mint too. I was shocked at how sharp it is at wide open. The bokeh first impressed me as nice but not special like the Primoplan, then I saw some images from it that did have a very lovely rendering. It seems important to get the distances right for that special look.

And me too. Primoplan remains at the top of my favorite lists. I recently acquired a 1.9/55 Quinon which is also quite nice. It is amazingly sharp wide open and bokeh can be very special in some situations. Has anyone tried the Quinon?

I know it exists, haven't had the pleasure of using one though...

I'm off to another slow start for 2020. Yesterday was a wonderful day weather-wise and the flowers are beginning to flourish. The bees have noticed too. I am yet to be disappointed with my Kinon photos. Speaking of which, has anyone tried a 35mm Kinon Superior? Maybe Leo? I've just purchased one.

All Kinon 1.8/50 and A7 II.
