That looks pretty identical.  Nice !


Judging from the serial number from Oktober 1948: 

P. Angenieux   Paris    F=70    1:1,5


Do you have a list of their serial numbers per year??
formerly known as kds315

I found this list --

http://forum.mflenses.com/angenieux-lenses-by-serial-number-t10297.html  Fits with my Angenieux lenses. 

The 70/1.5 I have is number 116 065, so assume it must be an older one.

I was cleaning out some junk in the barn and came across the skeleton of a movie projector, on which was a rather interesting Bell & Howell " 4" Incre-lite  F2.8,with the unusual feature that its thin end fits into my microscope adapter.  Wipe worst of grunge off, and out to chase bugs.  A quick preliminary result says it's hard to hold steady without a tripod, but it has a pretty nice look, I think.  It looks pretty business-like on the camera too.  Not quite as impressive as those new probe macros, but the working distance is pretty nice.  I may actually have to clean the glass!

p.s. the camera is a D7100, the adapter a hacked Konica, the plant a chive.  And I don't know how the date got turned on in the D3200.  Glitchy thing.
