Leica Elmar 90mm

My first Leica lens – a 90mm Elmar – sitting on a ledge outside out front door. The grip has crumbled away, near the mount, so I’ve just wrapped a bit of tape around it. It’s a lens for using, not for posing and taking photos of. Oh.See Flickr for bigger version.


Unprocessed shot taken with an Industar-50 lens – a little collapsible Leica copy (well, externally, I think the insides are copied from a Carl Zeiss design, as with most old Soviet lenses).
