Pros: Center sharpness, low distortion, price

Cons: Everything else

Opinion: A speciality lens. I bought a lens that was adapted to Nikon F mount. Sharpness in the center is good to excellent. Far from the center, the lens is mushy at wide apertures (field curvature may also play a role here), but gets very sharp on stopping down, which is the least you would expect from a planar lens. Chromatic aberration is low, but there is some purple haze wide open. Contrast is average. Do not shoot against the light, the coatings are primitive. Colors are rather dull. Best results are obtained in B&W. The bokeh is very special indeed, which the photographer can use as a "special effect". Overall, it is not a "good" lens but, as demonstrated by the galleries here, a talented photographer will get "good" images with it. See for instance "Down" by Sergio Derosas, and its remarkable "depth" effect. So far I have not been that successful...

Pros: All metal and glass; blurred; fluid rings; flares; manual focus; M42

Cons: manual focus; Flare.

Opinion: All metal and glass; sharpness; single boned (bokeh) (swirliiiiiii); fluid rings; flares; manual focus. Cons: manual focus; Flare. Opinion: Objective with M42 attachment that with adapter goes on all bodies both analog and digital, obviously also mirrorles and micro 4/3 (in stop down). It works great in manual but only after you have it checked by a photoriparator, at which point you have a lens that is worth at least 7 times. The last of the series, from 44-4 onwards are a little more solving and have a bokeh different from the first, but I am a sick of vintages and especially of these Russians: I love them all ! The blurryness of every lens in the series is truly peculiar. The rings are excellent only after the lens has passed into the hands of a photoriparator who is able to get them back on their feet and better control "mr. lens". Of the 44 series I can't say which one is better, I can only say that the former are a little less sharp at full opening, but it could be an advantage in portraits (or not) and as you go on the others are more respoke and sharper. The former have a single layer treatment and from 4 onwards have the Multi Coated. This also affects the rendering of the photo (flare). therefore... it all depends on how you photograph and what you want to achieve. Don't underestimate it: the only limit is the photographer (but also a lens that doesn't work).

Pros: Brightness, bokeh, very robust

Cons: ring focus a bit 'hard (maybe this is my problem and not the lens)

Opinion: I love this light, it captures very well the light creating suggestive effects unique. I use it in different circumstances, I also tried with extension tubes for macro. It performs well both day and evening. I am fully satisfied with this purchase and recommend it to everyone. I personally use with a Canon 600D and has no problem.

Pros: bokeh, construction, chromatic aberrations virtually absent in any opening price

Cons: not exceptionally sharp (but not a tragedy), unmanageable backlight, slightly cold colors

Opinion: One of the best M42 lenses I have ever tried! At full aperture creates a wonderful swirly bokeh that is the envy of much more expensive lenses as portrait. Tends to capture stray light side very easily producing effects of haze in the center. If found at an acceptable price (I paid 35 € shipped) perspective is a must have! Canon 6D no problems with the mirror.
