Cons:He suffers from flares and a little cartoon with closed diaphragms. Not so etched into sharpness.
Opinion:I was curious to see for you how this 100mm has always been so underestimated compared to its 14-bladed mid-60s diaphragm counterpart. I found a wonderfully mint specimen. Barrel, lenses, mechanics, all in excellent state. I started the tests in portraiture in the studio and I was surprised to see a decent clarity on the subject even at TA. I was expecting a very very soft lens but luckily that wasn't the case. Excellent blurry, soft with delicious bubbles on the lights. Obviously not as flashy as in the Trioplan but equally intriguing. Closed to f4 for me becomes a perfect canvas medium. Crisp with a bokeh always very pleasant. Outside in the architectural field, however, it left me a little perplexed. I knew it couldn't resist the flare much and I obsessed with a nice 49mm lampshon easily available making me gain even in contrast. But a certain vignetting over f8 I didn't expect. It seemed very marked to me. (with and without a lampshed of course). A few small chromatic aberrations, average for this type of vintage optics (I tried modern optics put much worse) and a sharpness from f8 to f11 not so incisive. On the other hand, my Sonnar, which has 35mm more, destroys it. Excellent instead the chromatic rendering and distortions practically absent. The dimensions are very compact as well as the weight of only 280gr. Mechanics never uncertain with beautiful fluid rings. The Orestor as a whole is a great portrait lens. Comparing my results with those found on the 14-blade brother's network I didn't notice much difference in overall image quality. Yes, the latter is certainly more pleasant to the eye with its zebratura and for the beautiful almost circular diaphragm with 14 blades operated by a diaphragm ring placed on the top of the lens, a ring that was subsequently set back at the height of the graft flange. But if these features are not fundamental I would say that their optical behavior is very very similar.
