Pros: Solid construction, no games, a 15-blade diaphragm that creates a pleasing bokeh, crisp, color, has its character.

Cons: For me no one being a vintage optics, perhaps the excessive stroke of almost 360 degrees from 1, 5mt to infinity, but there is.

Opinion: Bought out of curiosity, I'm trying with adapter on Fuji X-T20 and the few photos I made, I think it will remain in my vintage collection, I confirm that the blur is very pleasant and detaches the subject well from the background, I would be curious to try it on a FF with Stabilized sensor. Little expense and much surrender, I recommend the purchase to those who want to experiment from portrait to Flowers, a bit for everything.

Pros: Construction, resolution and overall optical quality and consequently image quality, sharpness, blurred and off of the planes, adaptability and surrender on digital, lightness and compactness

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: There are various versions of the lens. One with Exakta or M42 mount is the famous "monter bokeh" with aperture preset ring and 15 blades. Then there are those with diaphragm "normal" to 6 "blades", My wrote "P Zeiss Jena 135mm 2.8 MC" in the lens Hood incorporated! Needless to say that it was the reason why I took it and preferred it! More compact and lighter than the monster version, with little barrel extension, despite an helicoid that from the slightest focus distance to infinity rotates by almost 360 degrees allowing for a very precise mesa focus. In A word an excellent optics, which never disappoints (if it does is because I was wrong)... Very sharp already at full aperture, with deadlift and three-dimensionality worthy of optics much more emblazoned and expensive, beautiful colors, blurred soft and beautiful and a surprising resolve (on Fuji 16mpx) that also allows important crop. Multi coating treatment Not at the height of the T * Zeiss but still good, nothing distortion and very little AC even at full aperture, a bit duretta but usable with ease and great satisfaction! Historical notes collected: The Zeiss production was decentrated to Jena in East Germany and the Pentacon optics were born in the same factory of the Zeiss Jena for which there was evidently a design and materials and finishes combination. Over the years we have been reading mechanical modifications and the external finishes or the anti reflection treatments of the optics. In General the Pentacon are and will always be less valuable but constructively have little to envy the Zeiss Jena! My, M42 attack, must be an "interlocutory" version, I have no certainties to say that it is better than other Pentacon (for Exacta or Practika) but it is really excellent! Other Pentacon lenses, such as the 29mm 2.8 or the 50mm 1.8, are blatantly inferior to the Zeiss Jena cousins, not to mention those for the Contax system! The 135mm 2.8 in question has significantly lower market value than the Zeiss Sonnar Contax, benchmark for quality/price, needs time to be understood and exploited to the fullest, as for all vintage lenses requires calm and dedication, but it's worth it!

Pros: Sharpness, construction, price, focal length on FF, 15 blades, bokeh

Cons: nobody for now

Opinion: If they call it a bokeh monster a reason as well will be there! My specimen is 15 blades, a real bomb. Bought at 85 € with shipment, but kept in awe. It depends on a specimen, but in my both the diaphragm and the mafia ring is fantastic. Without the slightest noise and especially the maf is virtually infinite, after a while I'll kick you! RnThe quality and the clearing of the floors at TA impressed me immediately (I use it on FF) and above all its bokeh: it has a cremeity to the " limit of irritating "is so beautiful. Taken for a single purpose: close portraits, but I think I will try to use it for full figures as well and I'll let you know what I think.rnIf you want to buy it know that there are several versions, in particular give a diaphragm eye: there is a 6 slats (the cheapest) and 15 slats (more expensive) and as far as the price difference is concerned, the candle is absolutely worth it.

Pros: Construction, sharpness to intermediate diaphragms, handling, price

Cons: no one in particular

Opinion: It is one of the recent versions, Auto MC, built in the former East Germany, to say the one with six slats. That said what it surely impresses right away is its construction; All metal and glass. Soft (but not so much) if it's all open, and so great for portraits, with a fair blur. The intermediate diaphragms become very sharp. The colors are neutral and brilliant. Very handy and with a very soft and smooth focus ring; Very comfortable, though a little short, the built-in hood. Another thing that does not hurt is the price that hardly exceeds 50 €

Pros: Contrast, price, blurry

Cons: Integrated hood, MF ring too frustrated

Opinion: I have the multi-coated auto version. The lens is very sharp and contrasted, it can be used with strong side lights without creating artifacts. On micro4 / 3 the focal length is rather long, but with the stabilization in the car and the small optic weight, it remains easy to use. The focus ring has remained rather stiff, even after careful scrap helium maintenance. Fortunately it's fluid and long so it's still nice to use even on a free hand. I recommend it to anyone looking for a good 135mm bright, hard to expect better for the price it is sold.
