58mm Lens Club - Bring your Biotar, your Helios, your Tak 58mm... bring 'em all!

A tentative beginning, mainly to see if this would be a viable Lens Club - 58mm!

It's an oddball focal length, mainly an older focal length, but there are many interesting lenses that would fit the description: any and all 58mm lenses

I don't care what mount, what camera, any of that - just as long as it is a single-focus 58mm lens....

K-3 with Helios 44K-4

one of my favorite flare shots was with the Helios 44K-4:




not just flare here, but even the reflection of light off the aperture blades caught by the lens...

I like this idea! When I get out from under some other things taking my time right now, I think my Nokton and Biotar must be called upon.
