at f5.6 you can make half decent photo's with the trioplan 50/2.9, no swirl, no bubbles and a very limited soft focus effect along the borders.



No escape possible



A hint of swirl (wide open)

Two training shots with the Sony A7RM2 and the Samyang T/1.5 50mm taken at a hike on the Harz mountain range - the peak, Brocken (1141m), can be reached by a narrow gauge railway.

Indeed Chris. Bought a whole set including camera, motors, film-holders, sunshade and lenses. Biotar 1.4/50 and Triotar 4/135 are FF. Biotar 1.4/25 can be used on FF but blackens the corners. Flektogon 2.8/12.5 and Pentovar 16 2.8/15-60 have tiny image circle and make circles on APSC that I call planets. This set came from Germany from a seller that doesn't ship abroad (it was only me bidding ), so I had it delivered through the grapevine using a Dutch relative working in Germany.

And congrats on you acquisition. In Exakta mount so it seems, I love the pushbutton aperture action.
