a lens as old as I am

I just purchased my first vintage lens, a Wetzler Hektor 135mm f4.5. I chose that one for my first vintage lens because I didn’t already have a 135mm and because it was affordable. But mostly, I got it because that lens and I are the same age.

My favorite lens is a Leica Summicron 28mm f2.0; I shoot with it almost all the time and my brain is having a hard time getting used to how much closer things are when viewed at 135mm. But it’s good for my brain to have to learn something new, even if it is as old as a vintage lens!
