    Emil, fine examples by a wonderful photographer. I agree finding the lens that expresses the character and mood of the subject is fun. Having the choices is even better. I have some of the lenses that you show in your examples and some others that I need to get to know better. Thanks for the inspiration. I do love the Hermagis and the Kodak 305 I must say.

    yeah - that Hermagis is surprisingly (?) nice - with no swirl images...

    I just need to use mine more. Always loved the look of the Hermagis Eidoscop.

    ooh - so I misunderstood you - these are with the Hermagis Petzval, not the euryscop... (but agree - it need to "get out" more... )

    It is I who misunderstood. Regardless the Hermagis series is wonderful.

    Emil, thanks for posting these. They are both interesting and inspiring. Each image sings. Its always fun to think that a new lens will make us better. But it's really how we use them. Great post. Thanks again.

    I'm especially fond of the Kodak Portrait lenses but the prices have soared in the last decade or so... beyond my meager affordability. Imagon lenses were made in many more focal lengths and have a similar rendering (IMO)... IF you avoid use of the sink strainer discs which (IMO) usually destroy the final look. I love the way Imagons render with the strainer discs closed or using nicely rounded shutter apertures instead of the discs.
