Legacy Lens, Industar N-61 53/2.8 This group of photos have all been captured digitally but using an old manual lens adapted to fit my Lumix . The Industar N-61 is a standard lens from the Arsenal Factory, Kiev in Ukraine. Coming in the Leica Screw Mount they were , in effect, Soviet mimics of Leitz lenses meant for likewise copies of Leica cameras. Mine hails from 1990 and suffers from a focusing glitch that means it sometimes unscrews itself from the camera body. The Industar N-61 has a reputation for ease of focusing, although not wonderfully accurate.  Legacy lenses slow me down and allows me time to consider my photography.
