Compendium 20 – Who Doesn’t Like Superia??

This is Superia 800, which, to my knowledge, I have never shot with.  (Though I admit, I could certainly be wrong…) That being said, I definitely be orderin’ me some more of THAT.

This is also that crappy ‘ole Canon LTM lens, with a right-proper Kindai/Rayqual adapter…which was not cheap, but certainly lives up to the price.  I am definitely liking the lens a lot more than I should, considering the age and price…

I mean it only has, like, FULL STOPS! (…like what is that??)

Anyway, a lot of randomness here, but I hope you enjoy.

      Thanks Peter. It is definitely interesting to me that the “less than optically perfect antique lenses” seem to have a tad more character on film.

    Can I say something, are we in the nest …we are in the nest right???

    I never use half stops, pretty much always going by full stops 😬😬😬

    The ol’ Japanese Lux looks good to my (crappy) eyes as well. What’s the close focus on these, 1m?

      That’s the only real downside to this lens (well that, and the fact that I am probably going to have to have it CLA’d…)

      It is indeed 1m close-focus (seems like even more, TBH…)

      Now. About this “nest” thing…

      Is that like a Bird Box quote or something?
