Bought a couple of Zorkis (1d and 4K) from Russia and Ukraine.
Both came with Industar f3.5 50mm lenses (one pancake and one "regular").
A few days ago, I bought a couple of Jupiter-8 lenses and one of the lenses came with extension-rings/tubes.
In fact, the tubes, all stacked up, are twice the length of the Jupiter lens
Now, I wonder.
How can one use these extension-rings?
I am very aware of the parallax-issue and that it becomes more and more of a problem, the closer you photograph.
So, what is the point of having extension-tubes, at all, on a rangefinder, since you can't even see the thing you shoot when really close up?
- How do you shoot macro on a rangefinder?
- Is there any way to use a single extension-ring, to obtain a slightly closer focusing distance (not macro), lets say for close-up headshots, and still be able to focus correctly...how?
I really didn't buy the extension-rings, I was after the Jupiter-lens, but as long as I have them, it would be interesting to see if they could be used for something. ^^
