    I found this lens pretty cheap on eBay, and decided to give it a shot. It has one aperture setting - wide open. Close focusing distance is about 12-14 inches. The first photo below shows it next to a Wollensak Cine Raptar 38mm f/1.5 D-mount lens. Second photo shows the Wollensak beside of my Rokkor 50/1.7. I really don't see myself carrying the camera with the Cosmicar mounted. I would likely only use it when I wanted photos with an "artsy" feel to them. I didn't try to crop or otherwise edit out the vignette. Maybe with a sepia tint, such photos may have some merit. We'll see.
