Lock down collection

By johnnyjohhny  
Here some of my vintage lens collection most of them denoted by some good friends some bought by me and my particular favourite is no1
the 1978 Rikenon 50mm f2.0 thats 42years old and bought for me by my late mum and bolted on a Ricoh XR7 slr and was camera of the year 1981?.
So i decided to get them out dust them off and set a little home studio up 2x lights and a reflector and number them and do some quick research and scribble it down and some information is vague so feel free to enlighten me and correct me

A fantastic collection, of Primes, I have some of these, plus a few others that I use on Micro 4/3 Olympus and Panasonic cameras, fiddly to use but with great results, and the Bokeh that can be obtained is often stunning. Just looked at you folder of work interesting.

Well arranged and lit.
From the thumbnail I thought it was an old advertisement, from the same period as some of those lenses! So that's a 'well done' from me.

I recall such in Amateur Photographer and other magazines of the time dreaming of owning a good selection of lenses thinking it would improve my photography Smile

How many good memories ...
My first Ricoh XR2 camera, then Pentax, then Leica, then Canon ... and many more ...
And the legendary Colorplan to project the slides ...
Congratulations on the collection: a piece of photographic history!
