A bit of fun with a nifty 50 Nikon f1.4 adapted to the M240 (and a bit of old school trickery)
Well yes, there are lots of nifty 50's out there and definitely the sharpness falls off rapidly as the aperture increases. Definitely they aren't Summilux 50mm f1.4Nikkor 5cm F1.4- I like it!
I saw the images from the Thambar.... I'm thinking of making a soft focus lens... It's difficult to make a sharp lens. Not so difficult to make a soft lens.
I'm not sure I quite understand. Are you suggesting a lens repair? What happens when you replace a multi element section with a single element lens? Sorry for the questions, but I'm not cognizant in these things. I've watched some YouTube videos, I think of "the angry photographer" where he discussed multi element vs single element lenses but frankly I can't remember the salient points. He's quite verbose and it's hard to keep track of the subject.What I'm thinking of playing around with- taking a "beyond hope" "90-Ish" telephoto and replacing the front section with a single element lens of the matching focal length.
I've made RF-coupled single element lenses for people before- much the same idea as a soft-focus lens.
