    is that the trioplan 50/1.9 or the primoplan 58/1.9 with the swirling bokeh?

    Hi Viktor,
    I just got a biotar 58mm f2 and I love it, its a fantastic lens, with as you say very specific color rendering. I was wondering if you had some how mounted the 50mm f1.4 Pentaflex to the emount system. And if so, what kind of adapter did you use?
    Hope all is well,

    • Hi Ali, I made a temporary adapter for my Biotar 50/1.4 from Pentaflex, using broken Fd/E adapter some spacer and epoxy glue. However, I am working on another one, where the base is M42/E mount with hellicon. Because the opening of M42 is smaller than Pentaflex mount, I have to do some machine work. Problem is however to keep it perfectly centered…

    I think you’d really enjoy the old Nikkor 5.8cm f/1.4 too, as it has a unique look and can be picked up for ~100usd with some patience.

    How many lenses do you own Victor!!! Your site is just amazing!!!!

    • Hi Kausthub,

      we have here in verybiglobo.com over 1000 lenses recently, but we are preparing to open web store for legacy lenses, so that’s a main reason why we have that much.
      Thank you for your visit and kind words,

    I would be interested to purchase a few of them. Its really a passion for me to shoot with old lenses on my Sony A7 bodies. Just let me know if there are some that you are already willing to sell.. Will be curious.

    Good review! However, I disagree on the Biotar 58/2. It is NOT less magical that the 75. And I love its painterly bokeh.
