And yet, on a slightly different tangent, adapted lenses are indeed way more suited to create "art" than modern ones, at least for me.

With all the weird bokeh, swirls and bubbles I feel I can create a much more surreal photograph that a modern AF zoom lens that contain so many glass elements to take away any hint of "unnatural".

While editing might not play a great part in some of my images, the selection of a vintage lens for a given idea certainly does.

image created with adapted lens: projector Aldis 8.5cm f2.5

Very good.  Interesting character.  One might wonder if any human mind could imagine this interesting artful image unaided by your optical friend.
