The look of a 136 Year Old Lens on a Modern Digital Camera

There's a good reason why photographers should never, ever, get rid of a lens. Photographer Mathieu Stern dug up a large format camera lens that he says dates back to the 1880s and adapted it to fit on his Sony a7 II. “The lens is incredibly sharp for a 136 years old simple metallic lens, from my test it’s even sharper than most of my modern canon lenses, the results are amazing. But it also gives some strange lens flares and light leaks that are pretty dreamy.”
