Pros: Swirly effect, construction and handling

Cons: MAF uncertain, completely manual, does not communicate, so nothing EXIF

Opinion: The yield is the famous one of the Zenit, you have to use adapters rings and at least for attack Nikon trick to operate the diaphragms fixed to F2, for Nikon you lose the PDC, unless you use adapter with additional lens that of course does Losing quality to an already unincisive lens, but... What wonders can be pulled out, is so scarce that in the presence of humidity has nothing to envy to the famous and expensive Trioplan, all spending really insignificant figures that roam the 20-40 euros according to the version.. Very helpful, everyone should have a copy in the bag.. The shots are almost never sharp... but always magical...

Pros: Crisp, swirly bokeh, vintage colors, beautiful 3d

Cons: Manual MAF, no infinity.

Opinion: A surprising lens, built well, solid and contained at the same time, there are many versions and from specimen to specimen you can see differences, the spiral bokeh effect that returns, when in the background there are leaves is unique and is Become in the time a signature of these optical fashions in the USSR; Usable on Nikon machines via adapter, simple metal or with corrective optics, personally I opted for the metal adaptor to not degrade the optical quality, taken very little through Ali Express, later I modified the scheme Optical, adding shims between the lenses to get as close as possible to the draught of my D750, for lack of the right thickness I approach a lot but I do not get the complete MAF to infinity, I use it mainly for portraits, on an APS-C body This optics approaches a Helios M40-2, but a few euros, on mirrorless with the focus peaking reborn to new life.

Pros: 20 euros and not hear them. As sharp as a modern lens. Swirly!!

Cons: ??????? Really for 20 euros you're looking for a cons???????

Opinion: Taken a few years ago on ebay for 20 euros shipped, to use it on A7M1. Taken for fun. What about... Sometimes I wonder if the FE 55 1.8 that accompanies me often (wonderful lens) is really worth 50 times, in terms of euros, this vintage. At F2 already very good though a soft wire in some situations of particular light. At 2.8 almost perfect. Great for portraits. The Bokeh is peculiar and very sought after just because enveloping, I would say hypnotic. Definitely not creamy. On A7M3 now I also goes on autofocus (with eye-AF). I'm so happy with this lens that I'm also looking for the 8-blade version, although I don't think there can be much difference.

Pros: given

Cons: I want to use it

Opinion: I have this lens and also the Pentacon 2.8 / 29, which I have been given together with the old analog machine, and I would use them on my 5D Mark III. Reading your reviews I understand that they are two good goals but without many pretensions. It is worth mounting it on my Canon adapter, or not worth the money? that adapter should I use?

Pros: to everything, sharpness and color rendition

Cons: nobody views the lens clsaa

Opinion: I possess always been, in the 80 to 35mm camera, now Canon EOS 600D. Used in reverse allows an aperture control (put a glue goccina on automatic iris control rod, so as to take the lead on just the outer ring). The use especially in this way, modern lenses do not have the iris ring. It has a great boken, shame about the 6 aperture blades, the version that has eight boken most beautiful and round. The front lens, perhaps all, are not anti-reflective, this deficiency allows lighting effects (reflections) spectacular, a real fun.
