Re: [Rollei] Mutar 0.7x


Mutars are great!  If you only make 5x5 inch prints, they have
no equal and are certainly cheaper than a Tele or Wide Rollei.
They work equally well (adequate) on any and all Rollei lenses.
No preference is shown for Tessar, Xenar, Planar or Xenotar.
You have to get the proper adapter rings.
