I love camera gear and picture taking. This is a window to my world of photography -- how I see through the lenses and what gear I use.

Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 5.8cm f2 Sample
I wrote about this "castrated" Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 5.8cm f2 lens some time ago, before mirrorless cameras were on the market. I thought the lens was history, but it is rescued by the mirrorless cameras, especially the NEX-6. I have it remounted on the Yeenon helicoid and the focusing feels a lot better. There is a benefit for mounting the lens on the helicoid: the lens could be used almost like a macro lens.
