I use adapters with a helicoid, so close focus more than native is possible, 
which I also increases the OOF effect. All the variables just add to the 
potential fun.

Really nice pot though.

I acquired a Voigtlander Prominent RF with attached Nokton 50mm F1.5 lens. 
Quite good optics for a 1950 lens.


The Prominent camera also came with a Voigtlander 35mm F3.5 Skoparon and a 
100mm F4.5 Dynaron, but there are no adapters available for them. I think I 
spend more on adapters than lenses.
