Using 3 Vintage Lenses to Shoot the Same Model

Comment

Photographer Mathieu Stern has been doing shootout comparisons showing how the same models look when captured through different vintage lenses. For this 5.5-minute video, Stern used the Konika Hexanon 28mm f/3.5, the Minolta 100mm f/2.5, and the Industar 50mm f/3.5.

These lenses are all relatively cheap through places like eBay. Here’s how they perform:

Industar 50mm f/3.5

An old Russian lens which appears to be available on eBay for around $30.

The Minolta, a much rarer lens, can fetch around $150 second-hand.
