NEW YORK NEW YORK – Today is a tale of a 75 year old lens, a 1937 85mm f2.0 Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar. After some significant effort I have finally gotten it to work on my Leica M bodies. Here it is with the statue of Sherman on the Plaza. I’m struggling slightly trying to master this lens (everything is backward on it) so I also shot fog our our window with a conventional Leica 21mm lens to make sure that I got a shot for the day.
