This one was taken using the lens widest f stop: 1.5 at 1/25 sec...
This one was taken using a wide f stop too, but smaller than 1.5 and fast 
shutter speed (perhaps 1/500):


Superb images, Carlos !

[OFF-TOPIC BUT SOMEWHAT RELATED TO VINTAGE ROLLEI CAMERAS]

This is a good answer to people insisting on having the last multi-coated lenses "because the older ones are not good for color" ;-)

There is a nice collection of kodachromes in 4x5" format taken in the USA just before WWW-II or during WW-II, my understanding is that none of the lenses in use were coated

Another interesting example using pre-WW-II lenses in front of a modern silicon sensor by Mr. Veijo Vilva (Finland)

example with a 1938 Schneider Radionar : http://galactinus.net/vilva/retro/index_files/r2984_s.jpg

examples with a 1932 Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 3.5, f.l. = 7.5 cm, salvaged from a 6x6 folding camera, probably very similar to the one in use on the rolleis after the war
