The S1119 hood

I have put two rolls through my Contax IIIa w/ the Sonnar 50/1.5 lens now and I felt that the photos could have had a bit more contrast to them. There are normally two ways to try to increase contrast in the out-of-the-camera images: filter and a hood. So, I ended up getting an original Zeiss Ikon hood for the Sonnar lens. It's designation is S1119 ('S' for screw-in) and it does look great on the lens.

I'm hoping to take the whole kit out this week and take some photos so we'll see if it has the desired effect.
If not - it will at least satisfy my gear-accumulation needs for some time.
