I wrote about the 'pancake' lens Industar 69 in the last post. I've been using it a lot on my Fujifilm X-Pro1 in the last week, and I am very pleased.
Above and below you can see the light distortion in the corners. I like that effect - it gives the pictures a retro look.
The other day I received something in the mail...
It was a long expected Canon P rangefinder shipped from the Netherlands. It sported a 50 mm lens which I'd not given much thought since the P is what I coveted.
Anway, since the P immediately had to be shipped to be repaired (since the rewinding release got stuck, thanks a bunch), the Jupiter 8 lens was to be excercised instead. I stuck it to the X-Pro and went out.
And it performed really well - didn't it?
Can't wait to get the P back, though.
