    A lens that is seldom mentioned. I think it draws beautifully.

    That is a beautiful lens- one of the only 5-element F2 lenses ever made. I believe Cosina produced a special glass that allowed the Heliar design to reach F2. It was limited production.

    Thankyou for posting, and would like to see more from it.

    I always loved the rendering from that lens. +1 to Brian's request for more.

    Here's a portrait, taken with available light on M6, Fomapan R reversal. Sadly, I no longer have the lens. Heliar.
