Pros: Sharpness, circular bokeh, price, color rendition, sturdiness, fluidity of the diaphragm

Cons: You should be familiar with manual focus, solvable with a little practice.

Opinion: I personally love this lens. Found in the drawer of my late paternal grandfather along with other vintage lenses, I immediately began to feel confident mountain on my mirrorless. I was amazed right away by the razor-sharp image quality it offers, for its bokeh (in certain situations comes that "swirl" effect that I adore) and for the rendition of truly real, concrete colors. Even TA. Other very important detail: the fluidity of diaphragm action, impressive. It is not at all jery and with a nothing you can set it to the desired opening without any effort. The first shots are tough to realize because the focus is very "sensitive" and just a nothing to spoil the photo. Nothing that can not be overcome with a little ' practice. I personally recommend it to anyone who prefers to do portraits and is looking for a particular bokeh. At the current market price is a bargain to seize on the fly!

Pros: Incredible sharpness, gorgeous bokeh, manual, construction that not even a tank, feeling, MAF and diaphragm "hard"

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: My absolute favorite goal. I used it for almost two years on a XT2 (on my profile you can find the photos) and made me sell all the Fuji outfit I owned. It seems to go back in time and shoot to film, a really winning accopiata. Except for Sony I got on hand all the camera brands with their respective OBJECTVI and never has anyone given me as much as this gieoiello. MAF Manual As I like, with hard ring nuts (at least in my model) as Paice to me, sharpness that you wonder why they are still fabricating 50ini when he exists and is still the king. A lens not for all I realize, but objectively we are in front of a masterpiece, also given the price, everyone should at least have tried one. Magic.

Pros: Construction of war, blurred, negligible cost (paid 15 euros) lightweight and possibility to take it apart to swap the lenses, all manual.

Cons: At this price no one, maybe for chì has FF must be careful not to focus to infinity (tap on the mirror)

Opinion: Bought a few days ago and it was love at first sight indeed shot. I had seen pictures taken by the latter on this forum and I thought that blurred and yield were due to an adequate pp instead photos already come out so ... Let's say a form of art in itself (so to speak). Not to mention if you reverse the front lens. leaves a blurred so special that you will not believe their eyes. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to try their hand at special closeup portraits of various kinds.

Pros: Construction with noble materials (iron and glass only), Vintage charm, low price,

Cons: I have not found any

Opinion: Given that I am a simple photographer, I bought this lens a few € by reading the various posts that are opened on vintage lenses, and to measure myself with manual focus. I admit that after the initial "trauma" I enjoyed learning how to use it, in managing the fire and the diaphragm, in programming the adapter ring with confirmation chip (which I recommend to everyone) in understanding how to make the PP images. .. Basic is a good school for everyone ...

Pros: Sharp, sturdy, timeless charm, out of focus ... and reminds me of when I was young!

Cons: Nobody considering that it is a true vintage

Opinion: Bought about a few years ago with a Zenith body about 40 years ago, and accompanied me for almost twenty years, even after I had equipped myself with Nikon. Splendid lens that should be known to be used in full manual or step-down mode. I exhumed it to use it with great satisfaction on a Canon 1300D with Gobe adapter ring. It can not compete with modern high-end optics but with those of the mid-range if it is great. Perfect for portraits on APS-C can be used with satisfaction even in inverted macro or with extension tubes. It is a pleasure to occasionally give yourself moments of real photography and fuck automatisms, stabilizers etc etc ... the one in which you are only you, your lens and the photo you have in mind. Try it for portraits with a blurred effect and you will always carry it with you. It makes you want to go back to the analog ...
