There has been a long and excellent thread running since January 2010 called "M8 and Old Glass", which contains many beautiful pictures using older lenses on M8's. I've wanted to contribute to the thread for some time since I've been experimenting with older glass but most of my shots now are with my M9-P or M2 and are out of place in that thread, so I decided to start a new thread that's not tied to a particular camera so that we can all benefit from seeing what older lenses can do.   Please

Those are lovely shots, Chaps, and thanks for the support.   Dirk, I've seen those superb shots before and they caused to me to lust after a 73/1.9 but I overcame the lust over time. But now it's started again! Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen?

Nice! If someone had shots with it it had to be you :D Beautiful shots, I thought that this lens would be wayyyyy softer wide open, and it’s actually fairly sharp and has this unique 3D rendering with a swirly (but not too swirly that makes you dizzy) bokeh.

Thank you !

M10M Schneider-Kreuznach Curtagon 28mm 1:4 for Exakta

Hi Enrico,

How did you mount your Exacta lens on to your M10M please?  I've been looking for ways to do the same but I haven't found a convenient way of doing it.

Pete.
