    careful with that lens and IR film... shooting it wide open will leave you very prone to focus errors. That Canon F0.95 lens SHOULD fit on something other than the 7... I saw one in a window of an antique store in Buenos Aires on I want to say it was a Canon P, but I could be wrong.

    I know some collodion wet plate workers that wish to heck it was 500mm. I know you meant 50mm. Yes.

    50mm? Hmmmm, I'm thinking recessed lensboard and bag bellows. Maybe, some painter's blue tape to hold a strip (or several strips!) of 35mm inside a 4x5 film holder...Whattaya say Jim? Canon 7 to Betax #5 adapter?

    Hey Brad! Naw, on a Deardorff, it would just look normal. You need to squash it on the front of something Leica sized for it to really look impressively massive The 50 takes a 72mm filter. It's BIG! Actually, I guess they were never terribly well loved.

    oooohwoo...72mm filters? on a 50mm "Normal" lens? We need to see some photos of this monster!

    Still think you might have some fun with it in mounted front of a Packard...oh, wait...2 inch focus. Maybe not.

    Brad- imagine something the size of a regulation MLB baseball on the front of a Leica. Look through the rangefinder and the barrel intrudes into the field of view- that's how big it is. I think the lens weighs something on the order of 1 1/2 to 2 lbs by itself.
