Week 52 – Carl Zeiss Jena Flextogon 35mm f2.4

Just before Christmas I picked up a  Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm f2.4 in M42 mount which I had heard very good reports about. I have a few old M42 mount cameras and decided to test it with my trusty Praktica MTL 5B and some expired Kodak Colorplus. It was a pretty cold day but clear skies…

Week 41 – Expired Fuji Superia 100
