    Great. Is that at infinity or portrait distances?

    Thanks Emil, for getting this fantastic thread started again! On my birthday, too!

    "Transformation" is a lovely new name for the Hermagis - how about trying the landscape end of the lens alone?

    Transformation..
    Happy birthday - I'll try the landscape part later - and today I have found a new "Love": My rare Kronarette seems to be the perfect soft focus portrait lens... didn't know that.. stay tuned

    #1 at infinity. Remember you can use just one half.

    Just re discovered my rare Oscar Simon "Kronarette" lens...
    Used it last 10+ years ago and then it was outdoors where the whites exploded..

    Now in my studio, and I was quite amazed.. almost sharp in the center, and the outer lines glow so nicely..
    A new favorite sf lens I think..

    These are great and put my efforts to do similar with my collection to shame. I just started putting mine together last week at https://grumpyoldman.dev/Lenses/ mostly so I could remember which lens to grab for which effect, so it's only a small subset right now. Now you've got me wanting to hunt down some of your lenses... You've shown me what I can aspire to.
