Facing the Bear



Although I use already a number of the amazing (post-war) Zeiss Tessar lenses on my Rolleiflexes and Weltaxes, I have not experienced anything in comparable in quality than this approx 1928 Zeiss Tessar on the venerable Zeiss Donata. Pictures are taken on the cheapest rollfilm available, the Fomapan 100 developed in Rodinal - and I am stunned by the detail and vividness of the this uncoated (thus the lens flare) lens.... Have to get some sheet film holders to take advantage of the full 9x12 format....
