    Great shot of the SR-71. My brother in law lives near that museum. We took the kids there last year.

    Beautiful photo, Bij. Did you handhold that still for 3/10th of a second?

    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.

    Did you take any photos? I'm curious about the internal sleeve in the Sonnar. I'll do some test shots with that one tomorrow.

    That's interesting. Do you think it was transitional to use up the older collapsible barrels?

    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.
