[UV] 1930ies Zeiss Jena Quarz Anastigmat f4.5 120mm at work

I was digging through my lens boxes, when that old 1930ies f4.5/120mm Zeiss Jena Quarz Anastigmat lens fell into my hands. So just out of curiosity here a quick shot with it...

It gets pretty obvious when working with such an old lens, that contrast is rather on the low side, some some post processing is needed to enhance contrast and also saturation a bit (which I usually avoid in my work).

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
