I fondly remember the tendency of the 42mm to create those nice circles "everywhere". That set the lens apart from most other X-ray optics. My Kowa 55mm f/0.8 has a similar tendency, but not to the same extent as the Rodenstock.

Perhaps I should get hold of a new sample for my Z cameras? Sold of my 42 Rodenstock many years ago, but kept the longer focals 50-100mm.

I’d love to join the TV club, but all I can find is a new, boxed, one for about 500 euros. It’s an astronomical price, compared to the $100 to $300 of used lenses in the past.

But the supply of cheap used ones seems to have dried up.

Would I be mad to pay that price for a ‘new’ one?

Richard, this is a lens that I use once in a blue moon.
How to justify any expense related to it, beats me  ::)
