I took the Jupiter-3+, Carl Zeiss 50/1.5 on the Amedeo Adapter, and my uncoated Carl Zeiss Jena 1936 5cm F1.5 Sonnar back to Manassas Battlefield today. Not as Cold and Windy as last week! Shot a series of pictures with all three lenses at F1.5 and F4. The rendering of these lenses built over an 80 year span is amazing.

We'll go from Old to Young, 1936, (about) 1956, and 2016.

CZJ Sonnar, at F1.5:
