Hi Lluis,

this camera and lens work. I like the first and the last one better for 
their gradation in the sharpness of the DoF.
BTW, is number 4 the Museum of Modern Art? I am not sure I recognize the 
Other: is your Pentacon the 120mm camera or a 24 x 36?

A nice set altogether, have fun with the 'new' gear.
