Thanks Paul! Busy here as well. I was lucky today not having meetings too early in the morning. However, no time for a lunchbreak/-walk for me and after work it was dark already. It's really grabbing the opportunities now.

Good to see the Meyer theme alive and well for 2019. I need to resolve my picture hosting before posting again.
Regards,

[QUOTE=darosa] @ the MG workshop

1 Austin Healey Sprite


Thanks, Leo, for helping start my day with that wonderful Bugeye/Frogeye Sprite picture. After 19 years of ownership, I have just last month sold mine to a gentleman in Poland. It was the most fun of the cars I have owned. After a little suspension work, it could handle turns well enough to frighten any passenger. Every acceleration can be a racing experience, winding it out while listening to the exhaust music. All this without getting in trouble for speeding.

Iris blue was the first color Bugeye I remember seeing. That was in 1959 or '60 and belonged to a friend of my older sister who lived a few houses away. I actually have a picture of the two girls with the car.

Mine was cherry red as new and white for as long as I owned it.
Regards,

woodrim

Found something "new"! Can't remember having seen it in the Meyer threads already.

I picked up a Domiton 4.5 F=40 for next to nothing, no serial number.

Couldn't find much about it on the web.

It seems to be an enlarger lens. No focusring. Aperture does not function as it should, but usually my Meyers are used wide open anyhow.   It has a M42 tread, so it is easy to mount. On my A99ii it can only be used for close ups & macro's.

Some first test shots (some with 12mm tube)


D1 - Domiton 4,5 f=40


D2 Yellow flower


D3 Chive


D4 Rhubarb


D5 Rope and rust


D6 Fender


D7 Orange flowers


D8 Jeans


Nothing special, but another device to fill my gap between 35 and 50mm for the Day Prime challenge

Nice find Fred, but most likely this isn't a projector lens!

Looks more like a dismounted fixed 40mm F4 lens of a Pentacon Prakti camera.
You find some info about it here and here.

Thanks Michael. I had found pictures of those, but since my copy has it's own aperture scale I was in doubt if it would be one of those. At the other hand I haven't found anything else on the web, so you may be right.

Great find Fred!

Like Michael said, it's the fixed lens of the Prakti.
It's been on my lenses-to-refit-list for a long time but I'm afraid it's not an easy job to separate this beauty from the mothership.
I assume the M42 mount is not original.

btw: don't call it "nothing special"! It's very special!
