    Yummy lens, Viktor, looking at the images the rendering reminds me Contax G line. I know it sounds crazy, but apartt of less glow in bright areas (silver crowns of the dancers)- it has ::
    -enough contrast,
    -sharpness,
    -somehow nervous bokeh-but not too much or distracting,
    -some smearing in the corners (no too much magenta though)
    I would compare it somehow in character with Contax G 35mm lens
    call me crazy

  2. Thanks Rado,
    It is very rare lens and extremely expensive but I have to say that it is impressive indeed. I am still trying to find more time to shot with it … You might have the point with Contax G comparison, but this Angenieux has (as far as I was able to briefly experience) somehow more balanced (probably less micro contrast by hair but smoother tonal transitions) rendering. Maybe I should try to compare them directly, thanks for the idea.
    All the best mate,
    Viktor

    Hi Victor, I managed to find a S1 in Rectaflex mount and wonder which filter would fit in without unscrewing the front lens element ? I tried the front thread and it happened … Would you know if there were any snap on filters made?! Cheers Jean-Marc.

    • Hi Jean-Marc.
      I don’t really know if the filters have been made, but you might try to write to Angenieux directly (contact on their web), they were very helpful when I tried to confirm the legibility of my sample. Good luck! Cheers, Viktor
