    What are you hearing about the Heliar 50/2?
    Nothing. It looks like a nice lens, though.

    Mine is a nice looking lens as well - I haven't tried it yet though - - I'm still recovering from the cuts inflicted by my 50/2 Z Planar.

    I know, but I'm not telling.

    sharpness is WAY over-rated ..
    go for whichever lens you like
    at 4x6 it won't really matter much ..

    I was thinking to buy the superb Sonnar Opton 50mm f/1.5, but after all this by Frank, I´m not sure anymore!

    Frank, don`t make a fool of yourself!

    Cheers

    You should be ashamed of yourself.

    Nokton at f/5.6 : Slippery with sparkles
    40 Cron at f/4 : greenish-pink with slight musty odor

    Hope this helps
    I just want to feel nostalgic like I used to.

    Y'know, its possible that the good life consists of living under a bridge, subsisting on goat, and robbing passersby.
