At the end I sold all of this for a good price to a collector that will cherish the lens and use it more than I can.
Saying goodbye to the Zeiss lens was hard, it became a sentimental piece that tied me to my grandfather...
but the Kiev/Contax system is not for me and I got offered good money
At the end I sent the money to my daughters college accounts as a present from my grandparents.

Well, that's still keeping it in the family. At least you got to experience using something your grandfather had.

I'm slow developing color film
From the tests in January/February

I drove past this farm for years and never notices the shadow had the shape of a bird until I saw it before taking this pic

Image
The old farmhouse was demolished a few weeks after I took this pic
All that farm is now a flat and boring space making way to hundreds of townhouses

It was a decent Sonnar, also in color. Too bad about the farmhouse.
