Question, did you use a Russian made Catadioptric lens?

Sent me to Google on that one... Thanks for the opportunity to educate myself on "Catadioptric" lenses. Nah, this was taken with the 80mm prime lens (80mm = prime in medium format) that came with the camera...

But I do have a 30mm fisheye,
a 50 mm Zeiss wide,
and a
180mm f2.8 Zeiss portrait lens on its way...

Nothing "Catadioprtic" though.

I think that was the Russian mirror lens ~500mm mirror lenses are pretty cool.

The Kiev looks fun Nick and the lens collection you have is classic... The Jenna lenses and some russian were at the forefront in Optics.

btw for 120roll film I used a changing bag and spiral ratchet loading spools in a cylidrical tank....that way I would develop in the afternoon without need for a darkroom ... after dinner do the printing.

I used mostly used FP4 100ASA OR / TRIX 400ASA with D76/ID11 1 + 1 developer same brew diff. maufacturer, The joy to see your well exposed negs hanging up tp dry is something to behold
For 120 color negs I used the German Tetanal simple 3 step chemical process way simpler than the then Kodak process C41 I think.

Scanning 120 is going to be way better than 35mm negatives (much larger format)

Interesting, I thought from the out of focus highlights it was a Cat lens. Not that I have seen every kind of lens and what they can do.
