Nicca III-S with Canon 25mm 3.5

I have selected my perfect tiny travel camera. New to me Canon 25mm lens takes very nice photos. With this tiny lens, you have a very miniature package.

Beautiful! I have such a small Leica body, but I do not have the Canon 25mm RF lens. I could use a CV 25/4 or Canon 35/2.8 or a Rokkor M 28/2.8. These are small lenses. Hm. I also could use a Rokkor 21/4 or Canon 19/3.5.

I have used that same camera and lens combo since the early 1990s, that Canon lens is great.

I have one of those 25mm lenses and find the results great. Unfortunately my copy doesn't couple properly with my M3's rangefinder, so it doesn't get much use anymore.

It is very much at home paired with a small barnack style body though. Looks handsome as well.

Another one for the Canon 25mm.
Great lens on film. Canonified version of the zeiss topogon scheme.... teeny tiny little glass elements.
Definitely renders in a classic way good for B+W.

Another fan of the Canon 25mm. Very sharp with good contrast. Excellent B&W lens. The attached pic is on Eastman-XX.

Always liked Nicca’s, though I’ve never owned one. Maybe someday.

+1 for the Canon 25/3.5 -- it's a great little lens!
Don't get the front element dirty -- it's a bear to clean that tiny little thing....

What a fantastic combination. This lens is better than I expected.

I'll be sure to keep a lookout for one of those 25's. Would be a nice addition to my LTM cams.

BTW, where is that last photo of the blue bridge? It looks familiar to me.

PF

ps: Never mind, I went through your Photostream and found out it's in Chattanooga. I was thinking Charleston, WV

The bridge above is Chattanooga, TN.

I got some film printed (thanks Win 10 for disabling all my negative scanners) this weekend from this trip. Expired Tmax 100.
