Week 16 already, getting more quiet for some, but I hope not for all . Focal length from 109 to 115 mm is the job at hand

At least I can get my Wollensak 114/5.6 Raptor Pro out (a good example of an "only once per year" lens) but I hope to see some more in this range.

I have an Isco Optic Ultra AV 110-200mm f3.5 projection lens, and hopefully some time to use it

Judging by those names, Raptor Pro and Optic Ultra, it's going to be an exciting week!

I have a few with rather bland names but I'll see what I can do with them.

Nice Fred, very dreamy and excellent composition with the "sun" behind the flowers


Small correction on my post above, I looked closer at my 114 mm lens and it's a Pro Raptar and not a Raptor Pro, sorry if that has caused any confusion . It's a large(r) format enlarging lens fit to some kind of M42 Helicoid contraption that focusses far beyond infinity and has a working aperture, but who needs that . To show it's full character it is best used wide open, a measly slow f5.6, but with the right background you get swirls galore, even more than my reversed front element Helios 44.


Magnolia stellata 1:



Magnolia stellata 2:



Succulent



Wild azalea buds


All A7Rii + Wollensak Pro Raptar 114/5.6

I guess it will be another year before this lens comes out again.

Thanks Pieter!
A petty your Raptar will be on the shelf for another year. I like that crazy bokeh !

Some character indeed! Strange that a large format enlarger lens should produce this 'bokeh' on a 24x36 camera, the more so as the Pro Raptars are Wollensak's 'flagship' enlarger lenses. Are you sure all elements are there, in the right and non-reversed order?

My Day 110, part 1:

Speaking of character, the plastic Lomography Diana+ 110mm Soft Telephoto is no slouch but may be called an an acquired taste. Lomography calls it a 'soft' telephoto but its aperture is a (fixed) f/8 ...

1 Conflicting images


2 Industrial silhouette


3 Perforated pattern


4 Nursery lane


5 Bark and bushes


all with a7rii + Lomography Diana+ 110mm Soft Telephoto

I have no idea if there was any tinkering with the lenses. Focal length seems about right and there are no scratches on the rings holding the elements in place but I agree that for a large format enlarger lens it's really weird. On the other hand, when using the lens at a much shorter range (using tubes) and stop down to f8 all the weirdness is gone and it seems sharp from corner to corner.

I have been neglecting my commenting, but with Yvonne’s demise and my screwed up back I find it difficult to muster enthusiasm. But I’ll have a go.

@Fred_S: 1st go for Day 110
A lovely softness, fantastic!

@pegelli: Surely a wide open projection lens should not behave like this! People tinker, don’t like what they see and sell on. I have bought a Triplet 78 projection lens that showed erratic behavior and managed to reverse it. Easy because there are not many ways a 3 element lens can be assembled. And I left no visible traces of opening. I’m not suggesting you should perform surgery on this lens, Pieter. I like it the way it is, bokeh a little wild (understatement).

@darosa
Soft indeed. I get the feeling of looking at 3-D images without the goggles on. It has an artistic appeal, but I struggle to really warm up to them.

@Micholand
Modern facade: Wonderful!
Looks like a painting: I suggest Sony introduces a shutter button at the bottom of the camera to facilitate these shots, or a camera with rotating sensor, good for portrait mode as well . This one really invites the viewer, plays tricks with the mind. Fascinating stuff.
Marstall theater: Representive of the time we are living in.
Worm gear: A bit ordinary compared to the visual entertainment provided by the other three.

@Fred_S
I like the way this lens draws a picture, particularly 110.4.

I have a 110 arriving, delivery took too long for day 110 and I have to figure out how to mount it as I don’t think I have something for this fat one. But I do have a 120 for this week!

The start of week 17 is today for focal length between 116 and 122 mm, nothing from me this week (and next week neither) but I'm looking forward to what others can bring in this range

Thanks Paul! This plastic singlet/doublet (?) has massive fringing, which explains the 3D effect.

Maybe my Day 111,1 image makes you a bit warmer :
