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!


Thanks Leo! I will give up my suspicion of an enlarger lens after Michael's and your info

Did not mean to offend the master of Meyer by "nothing special" . It was just my way of expressing that it didn't show any swirl or bubbles bokeh (yet?), but that might be me. I like its bokeh anyhow.

A special lens will not always produce special images.

I don't think you can expect swirl and/or big bubbles. F4 is just too slow.

I'm back    I've switched my photo storage to Flickr for those images I post here on Dyxum. It took a while before I broke their code on how to post images here. All were taken yesterday with A7 II and Primoplan 1.9/58

This one just arrived today.
Telefogar 3.5/90mm, Red V, Altix mount, SN 1835467,in great shape, with leather case and original leather cap (55 euro shipped from Poland, not a bad deal I believe). Easily adapter to a m42 adapter already to mount on my A99ii.



(I should have stopped down my Trioplan 2.8/100mm a bit here...)

Ready for Day 90 already!

Wow,#4 is absolutely stunning!! Unbelievable bokeh! #1 is also quite extraordinary in background bokeh terms! Your recently received Telefogar does a hell of a job!

Thank you for sharing the series!

Thanks Harald! I am pretty happy with the Telefogar so far, only used a 12mm tube since MFD is 1,5mtr which didn't make the bokeh character shine like it does here.
