Hallo to everyone :-)

Thank you for accepting me at your table.

Regards from Serbia!

Going through my treasure from 70s (previous century) I ve found "PRACTICA IV"

Frankly speaking I have no idea when and how this camera ended in my hands.

As I am now using Olympus epl5, I was planing to play a bit with some old lenses for portraits, and surprisingly I found that this camera is equipped with a rare Meyer optic PRIMOTAR 2,8/50. Digging through net I found this:

If anyone is interested, there you can find more info on this lens.

One day hopefully I will put some photos of lens and with lens.

By the way:

There is a curiosity: Exacta version of this lens have 0,75m shortest distance, and m42 Practica version (version I own) have 0,6m, so you can correct info on this at lens specifications
