Pancake madness

Well I did pull back from trying to collect as many pancake lenses as I could but not before picking up a cheap Industar 50-2
silly lens as the M42-4/3 adapter adds 50% to its length...

Re: Pancake madness

Actualy pretty good for a Tessar type, and you are right the Industar was a pan-cacke in those day's.
A bit long for an Oly pan-cacke with 100mm effective......

Have you tried to do portraits with it yet ?
The focal length is suited for it.......

Nice shot, thanks for the idea, I will have a look for it when I am back in Holland again.

Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.
