Didn't know that. I'll give it a go.The diameter is pretty small though

130mm / 16mm = ca. 8
That seems a appropriate estimate

I managed to thicken the lens with some rubber band and isolation tape to fit it in a 1.25 inch telescope to m42 adapter.
Then via a slim M42-to-MD adaptaper on Minolta macro bellows. The bellows was put via a MD-MA adapter on my A99ii.

(could have used M42 helicoids, tubes or A7R2 too obviously)



Initally I couldn't get a sharp picture




But then I suspected a reversed element and 'repaired'that



This looks pretty much around f8 (iso 100, 1/250sec).
But hey, they could make pretty sharp lenses back in 1938 !

Not the wildest bokeh of my Meyers though


To be continued.....

Good job, Fred. That is impressive for such an old projector lens. The focal length combined with the slow speed seems to have had a taming effect. I had hoped to see more character. Nevertheless, fun to see what you've done with it.
Regards,

Thanks Mike! I had hoped for a bit more character too, but indeed it was fun to explore, and I have another Day Prime option now

Nice! I think I like the first best, probably because of the symetry.
TFS

I picked up mine as well today, pics to follow

Nice Peter, for me "twins" is the favourite (by a very small margin), for me that one "sits" the best, can't explain it in another way


Something much more conventional from me

The "restored ruin" of the Priory Our Lady on the Throne

Overview



With a modern bench for quiet meditation



Entry to the crypt (the gate was unlocked, but nothing to see inside, just bare brick walls)


All A7ii + Pentacon 29/2.8 ("modern" version of the Orestegon 29/2.8)

Thanks Peter, good light helped as well but the lens isn't too bad overall. Sharpness towards the corners is its real weak point but at web size that's not always noticable.

Here's a few more with the same lens from the watermill in Grobbendonk







Unfortunately due to COVID the inside/back was closed so no photo's of the mechanics or the water wheel   


Two more with the Orestor 100/2.8:

Waterfall (in the bypass around the watermill)



Entry to the miller's house


All on an A7ii
