Rodagon Rodenstock 28mm/f4 again

Thie enlarger lens has short flange, only in Sony e-mount and others with shorter flange camera this lens reach infinity. The problem is, it has big barrel that it cannot be mounted on helicoid nicely.
My friend modified this enlarger lens, so that I can use it on my thinnest helicoid.
He cut the rear part of barrel, and put a part of m42 extension tube on it.
Always amazed with it's sharpness

Fun flare, only appear on wide open

it has blades inside, closed if the optic set to farthest distance. and open when it set to closest distance.
IThat's how to control the aperture.

Schneider Kreuznach Super-Cinelux 35/2 MC

orrifcial  PDF Sheet
From official PDF sheet HERE
One thing I didn't expected about this lens is the size, I thought it has smaller/shorter barrel than 62,5mm ES cinelux. I was wrong. It's longer, and even has heavier hood. make it handsome lens though.
So far, the results ;
  • Sharp as expected
  • It has relative wide dof, good for indoor meeting, streetshot etc.
  • Nice flare
  • some CA appear which is acceptable

The first 2 were shot with Sony a6000

The rest pictures below with NEX5

The lens doesn't has description about the maximum light can through, which is usually indicated with the "F" letter. But the rear optic indicate that it has at least f2 like other isco lenses. f2,4 has smaller glass.
the lens identity

It's sharp. yes. at close distance to infinity
