Optics Theory - This forum is aimed towards the TECHNICAL side of photographic OPTICS THEORY. There will be some overlap by camera/manufacturer, but this forum is for the heavy duty tech discussions. This is NOT the place to discuss a specific lens or lens line, do that in the appropriate forum. This is the forum to discuss optics or lenses in general, to learn about the tech behind the lenses and images. IF you have a question about a specific lens, post it in the forum about that type of camera, NOT HERE.

Here's one using the Leitz Thambar 9cm f2.2 @f2.6 with the stop filter... ...interesting, even a little horrifying.

Absorbed in the universe of drawing
The Sonnar 85 mm (Jupiter-9 @ F2) not only has nice background but also models in a plastic (positive, artistic) manner. M240 & EVF.
