Great shot of the SR-71. My brother in law lives near that museum. We took the kids there last year.
 
Leica M9 with 50/1.1 Nokton. ISO 2500, wide-open. 1.25x magnifier used. LR6 used with default NR, "25% color, 50% detail, 50% smoothness". Sharpening turned off. I find sharpening at High ISO brings out more noise. Slow 4x SD cards used, as always.

I bought an early 1950's LTM collapsible Nippon Kogaku Nikkor 5cm f/2 on eBay which had disappointing image quality when I received it, to say the least.

Brian worked some voodoo on it, and I received the rejuvenated lens back to me today. I don't think there is anyone who knows more about these vintage lenses.

Thanks Brian, and here are some samples from a brief outing in Manhattan with the Nikkor and the Leica M9.

PS: Brian advised me to use a hood due to some cleaning marks on the front element. I was anxious to try the lens, so just stuck it on the camera and went out.

This was my first shot, no hood, about f/8.

The early Nikkors are incredible: the internal coatings withstood the test of time. I bought one over 10 years ago, popped the front section- cleaned a wax-paper like haze out of it, was perfect.

This one cleaned up very nicely. And I had a lot of fun taking this one, and the early (1934) 5cm F2 Rigid Sonnar apart as well.
 
I suspect that Zeiss offered both collapsible and rigid at the same time, and this was the easiest way to offer a rigid lens: a one piece tube that adapted the collapsible barrel to the rigid mount. The mount still uses shims for the standoff, so the tube just has to screw into place- but not be an exact length.
