Some new toys off eBay ...
Minolta MD 35-70 non-macro version, said to be relabeled by Leica for their own system:
A quick shot, which is massively cropped down because the minimum focusing distance is 1 meter. I'll try to get out this weekend to take some real shots:
And then an anamorphic lens, intended for video, but I've shot some stills just to test out its sharpness and distortion. It's very good, but a giant PITA to focus because you have to focus both lenses, and the thing likes certain lenses more than others. I tested it on the Helios, a Canon EF 200/2.8, Tamron 135/2.5, and the Canon FD 50/1.8. I have to expand images shot with it horizontally by 1.5x.
In this picture, the taking lens is the 50, which it seems to like, but vignettes at 1.8, so I have to close it down some. Any wider lens will always vignette. The knob in front of the lens all the way to the left is how you focus it. It is a projection lens.
Just for laughs, the 200/2.8:

This is a pretty harsh test because of the contrast between the dark hill and the blown-out sky, which makes the chromatic aberration worse, and I wasn't too sure of my focus, and the out-of-focus look for the anamorphic lens can also cause artifacts similar to CA.
