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.
Regards,

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.



Only on APS-C? That's what I was wondering. Does it have a small rear protrusion? I won't see mine until later this week. Is yours from an 8mm or 16mm projector? Thanks, Leo. Maybe I should have asked before I dished out the $18.

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.

A7R2 + Domiton f=40


Nice and sharp, good bokeh too of the 3.5 Domiton!

Thanks Leo! Indeed it's a f3.5. The home made housing made me think it was f4.5, but you are right.

Some great Kinon shots from yourself!
