    Perhaps. Many of us like the challenge of making nice photos with bad lenses. It's all going to be different results based on lighting, background, photographer, etc... And not a fools errand as some of my best photos are made with unloved lenses.

    TRy out one of the 50mm/f1.9 Ocillo Paragons (Ilex or Alphax shutter). They were optomised for ~ 1:1 imaging of a 4' oscilloscope screen and will not cover 4x5 at infinity, but will cover for macro work. DOF is about the thickness of a Nat's whiskerwhen wide open.

    They are often on the Bay and usually pretty cheap.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    I'm actually surprised how good most of these look, considering they are pretty old designs being shot wide open. The depth of field is narrow but what's in it is decently sharp, considering.
