NEW YORK NEW YORK – Another very old Carl Zeiss Jena lens on a adapter. This one is a 1937 Carl Zeiss Jena 8.5cm Sonnar f2.0. It’s consider one of the great portrait lenses of all time.. Very nice but on the adapter focus is a bit flakey. It should work better with the Leica M that I have on order which permits focusing through an electronic through the lens viewfinder. Once you sort out focus the images that it produces are lovely
