1946 coated Biogon. It is a terrific old lens. Maybe my favorite LTM.

I believe this is the lens that Robert Frank used to photograph 'The Americans'. I've never actually seen one before -- just the usual Jupiter 12 clones -- so any close-ups would be much appreciated.

PS. Including coffee, if possible

Fresh out of Joe...





The naked rear element is scary-cool, and handle-with-care. It must come within a millimeter or two of the shutter curtain.

I've only seen the Biogon in LTM a couple times (on RFF). Never in person. Do you have to reach into the front of the lens to change aperture?

Yes. You can see the knurled ring for changing the aperture in the photos that I posted.

[IMG]Cameras and Coffee.. by T&T and Mr B Abrahamsson, on Flickr[/IMG]

Espressos at Granville Island - and a couple of 10mm f5.6 Heliar Hyper Wides. Leica Historical Society is having its annual meeting here in Vancouver and members are coming in every day. Yesterday it was our friend Ed and Julie from Vermont - and they needed double shots after the flight from Montreal.

I have to admit. I have not encountered a Zeiss SW before. So, this is an Ikon, but with an extra cold shoe on the top plate? That's neat. Still has a typical viewfinder with framelines for the usual suspects? (e.g., 35,50,90)

P.S. I hope we can see some example images from the 10/5.6

Look what Leica and a good friend made me do:

I had an old first gen Leica MM which was my all time favorite every day use camera - the only one in my bag every day.

When that Leica MM's sensor died, I lost everything. And Leica... took that from me.
Stole that from me... *Killed that from me*! People keep asking if I'm back and I haven't really had an answer. But now, yeah, I'm thinkin' I'm back, using my old Nikon gear instead!

Nikon SP, F3 and FM3A and a Cortado at the local coffee shop in SH after a few rolls of exposed film:

Leica did similar to me in a digital way before the summer my sensor needed replaced so I was without a walkabout 'leisure' camera (My other Dslrs are Canon 1dxs for work too heavy!) picked up a Nikon Df love it! but it has led to a lot of buying of old Nikkors!!!

There is no too much in having old Nikkor lenses ;-)
You might want to try out a full matte focussing screen in your Df - I use the "S type" screens in both my old D3 and D800 and they are fantastic to manually focus those old lenses.

Great looking coffee, and beautiful cameras. Though it looks like the RF and the smaller SLR were just about to enjoy a coffee together when the F3 came in and said "HAY GUYS WHATS GOIN ON"

Yes, a motorized F3 always looks a bit like the Trump in the room full of rangefinders.
It's amazing how great the little FM3A (or any FM2 for that matter) works together with a Nikon rangefinder side by side.

Sweet looking M2 and I like that aftermarket hood idea with E39 adapter.
I was lucky to find a rare swiss made contemporary conical aftermarket hood that screws directly into the Summitar's filter thread - but this rules out the use of filters unfortunately.
