1935 Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm F2 Sonnar enlarger lens made back into a Camera lens. This required transplanting the optics into an empty optical fixture in Contax RF Mount. Wide-Open on the EP2:

Lens is RF coupled for the Nikon, used with an Amedeo Adapter on the EP2.

Another lens test: 1956 KMZ Jupiter-3 in Leica mount, with the focus mount modified to focus closer than the normal 1m. Now goes to ~0.8m.
Wide-Open on the M8.
