The 25 Skopar on a Bessa R4A, a good combo for getting in close and intimate!

Nice shots NeeZee. Glad you found this hidden gem of a thread. I need to finish the roll in my Bessa L. The 25/4 is a fun lens.

Thanks, gb. I just like how this little lens transforms my IIIf in a modern camera after messing around with all those 'classic' lenses for years

Hey, those images turned out very nice! How did you get the scans from the slides?

I scanned them with my Epson V700 and its standard scanning software. Only additional adjustment was the auto color correction button in PS Elements (works wonders to remove the slight blue tint you often get with slides). I like slide film as it is a lot easier to scan and to get consistent results.

This lens is small and light and with a low price. It was my only CV lens for several years until I then bought two CV Heliar 50mm lenses.

Thank you, Steve. These two photos were taken in the Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee. A small lens is great for hiking. I used the 25mm lens on a Bessa L. focusing was not needed.

I should play with it more often. All very nice images here, but had sort of forgotten mine... probably because of the lack of focus coupling it doesn't get the sort of attention it deserves.

Thanks, Dave. Yes, it was handheld, at probably 1/15 or 1/8, with the lens wide open. I took a deep breath, and said OMMMM very quietly as I pressed the shutter.

Nice one, Greg! Very "New Topographics"-like, IMO.

The 25mm Skopar is by far my favorite street lens, either on my M2 or my NEX 3. On the NEX it makes for a nearly perfect pocketable (if you have largish pockets) hip shooter. If you could turn off the LCD to save power it would be perfect.

took the train out of town into the black forest yesterday to shoot a roll of apx100 with the iiif, the skopar 25/4 and the "new" leitz red filter i found in a local camera shop last week. it was fun though i'd hoped for more dramatic clouds - maybe next time...
developed in rodinal 1+50, by the way.

thanks a lot, helen!
actually the original cv 25/4 was a screwmount lens (kit lens for the bessa l) - the cheapest modern lens you can get (used) for ltm actually and definitely one of the best.
