    Finally got around to taking out my 1961 Kodak Cine Ektar 102mm ƒ2.7 16mm film lens for a spin. It was a drizzly day in DC and I was really out to take care of some of my geocaches around town; all shots are hand-held, auto-leveled in Lightroom, but otherwise unprocessed. S-mount > c-mount > m43 on a GX7.

    Went back to Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens today to take a stab with my adapted '68-era Nikon Nikkor-S Auto 50mm ƒ1.4, which I'll post later in the appropriate thread, but also brought along the Cine Ektar to try and reshoot some shots from yesterday I thought might have benefitted from being stopped down. That didn't work out (the sun wasn't in the right part of the sky), but I did catch these little guys hanging out.

    beautiful render of the bokeh: soft but with a hint of swirl. I think your Ektar is sharper than my Ektanon (it should be)

    Lewis this is a fabulous suite of images! Between Gnarly's and your images I Know it's an impressive lens.

    Unfortunately I will not be able to keep pace with you two's Kodak Cine acquisition spree. Before taking the dramatic step up to 152mm please consider the 114mm anastigmat first.

    Kodak Cine Anastigmat 114mm f4.5? I looked it up on wiky and it's listed but I have never seen one, even in pictures... how rare is it?
    Then again, rare= big $$$ :(

    edit: never mind, I found them under the listing of 41/2" instead of 144mm. Hmmm not sure how f4.5 will look, compared to the brilliance of f2.7....
