Were antique lenses were designed for Black & White photos
Mar 31, 2012

When I use my old Leica screw mount Lenses to take colour digital photos, attached to my digital cameras, the results were not as good as if I used them for black and white photos. I have a wild thought, were antique old lenses were designed for black & white photos. Like those 40s and 50s lenses, for example Leica 50mm f2 or f3.5, at that time colour films were not popular, majority of the films were black and white. Does anyone has the same experience.
