In this case, the 'old and quirky lens' was a necessity: the Meritar has three thin elements, and so doesn't cut the UV levels too much. A more modern lens, with five, six or seven elements (more if it's very wide aperture or a zoom) would lead to even more extreme EXIF than the 20k ISO I used here, with the lens at or near full aperture.

Oh!! The bother of it all! Great expression caught, John, along with great processing, and framing.

Excellent image and has the look of a still from a French film.

Oh dear!

I have no reason to think it's anything special other than on a full-spectrum converted camera, with the UV filters on it...

But different folk get differing results, and it may suit you wonderfully. (And I may have to get out the other lens that came with my mate's dad's Exa 1, which he'd put together himself from a projector lens and a mount. But he was an engineer, and anything he did tended - and still tends - to last!

That’s ok, my LUMIX GX9 is a poor man’s Leica, so with an M42 adapter, I will be able to go into…Rangefinder …mode… it helps sharpen my old brain cells…. I think that yiu are aware that I too have joined projector lenses to focussing tubes with masking tape… with amazing macro results…….

It doesn’t all require super expensive gear…I will post results from the 50 - 2.9… very soon after it arrives.
