Multi-talented . . .

. . . lens, that is. Not me.

Outdoors for a short while this morning with the 75mm Summilux, and on a whim I decided to try my old Elpro VIIa on the lens. I’d brought it along in hopes of finding a stepping ring to attach it to the 135mm APO-Telyt, but couldn’t find one.

Leica gives specs for this only for 50mm, 90mm, and 135mm, so I don’t know what the magnification is at MFD. But a result can be seen below. I was pretty impressed; most Canikonympusonic glass can’t do stuff like this.

On the way back in, I saw an unusually small Little Heron stalking something on the planter. Figuring he must be a confiding little critter to be in such a human-dense area, I edged closer until I could get the second shot below. He never budged.

No wonder this lens was Dr. Mandler’s favorite!
