French photographer Mathieu Stern has an unusual hobby. He loves pairing old lenses with modern digital cameras to shooting images and videos. Recently he paired a large format lens, originally made in 1880, with his Sony A7II. In this video he shares the results, both videos and stills:
It was some work pairing the two together before he could start shooting pictures. He first had to use cardboard pieces to keep the lens tightly blocked inside a M42 ring mount. (Via PetaPixel)

Watch the video above to see the beautiful results he achieved with this fantastic piece of glass.
