A Better Mousetrap? The El-Nikkor APO

Recommended Posts

These are just my first couple of shots using the El-Nikkor APO 105mm f/5.6. And, although I have not even figured out what kind of extension tubes, etc. I want to use for this little beauty, I can at least tell myself that this is a remarkable lens. The fact that it is an APO lens fits right into my theory that this kind of color correction within a lens is what I like. Just my two-cents.

The light is gone here for the day, but I can’t wait to see what this rare lens will do. I have been tilting at windmills for lenses for a long time. Every once in a while I get lucky. This is a wonderful lens, even at first meeting, perhaps a match for the CV-125, at least in my work.

Pardon my compositions. I am just firing off a few shots.

Beautiful colour and tonal gradation in these. Perhaps it might be worth the comparison if you could lay hands on one of the Apo Rodagons for a different perspective in this direction as well?

I will be looking at an APO Rodenstock soon. We will see what it is all about. Till then, this will keep me busy.
