(Page under Construction)

  • FOV corresponds to a 80mm lens on a 35mm camera
  • a Tessar derivative
  • rather sharp already wide open, sharp at f/5.6, very sharp at f/8
    although perhaps not as sharp as a Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 2/58
    -- anyway, this is a much cheaper and smaller lens
  • very light at 65g
  • very cheap

  • the lens is mounted with an M42-to-EOS adapter
  • manual focus
  • AV (aperture priority) or M (manual)

Most photos at f/5.6
