Interesting result, close-up lens? scanner lens?

Rare Scanner lenses from the Israelian Company Scitex which made high quality scanners.

They come in three: The Rodenstock Scitex 67mm f/4.9,  89mm f/5.0, and 110mm f/5.0.  Based on the serial number they were manufactured in 1993. 
On the Z's they all go to infinity. On the F mount the 89mm and the 110 will reach infinity. 39mm  mouth.  The first impression, extremely sharp and detailed, with no traces of loca. I can open a separate topic..

Nice image.

So you will be keeping the D850?  ;D

Thank you all for the nice comments. The lens is here at full 1.4 aperture. This is the way I like to use it for people. Indeed special enviromental portraits can be had with this lens. Here, the man in his office. Meet Jose

  Plenty of detail and looks like pleasing rendition. I'll love to hear more about it

  Thank you.
  I'll keep it for a little longer as I'm enjoying it a lot but it will go back to the owner in due time.

The 105 MC is doing good service for you again, Fons :)

I just completed my modification of the iShoot ZMC105 tripod collar for the 105 MC so it can rotate +-90 degrees off horizontal. This works with all my Z cameras except for the Z9, because the protruding battery compartment lip on the latter prevents the collar to fit. If the rumours of the upcoming Z8 are to be trusted (sic!), that model would allow the tripod collar for the 105.  If Z8 has 60+ MPix too that would be perfect for the Rodenstock TV-Heligon. We'll see in due time what Nikon releases for us.

I have that iShoo ZMC105 tripod collar. How did you modify so it rotates, please?
