Pros: Nice construction, soft focus ring and diaphragm clicks. Its use especially for mirrorless camera to adapt without problems

Cons: In large openings there is distortion, it looks sharp at f3.5

Opinion: Nice construction of frame m42 to any mount so much in sony, fujifilm, etc. It feels robust, all metal from its mechanisms. Difragm rings, focus. In high apertures of diaframas you feel its distortions, Its sweet point of focus f2.8. It is a beautiful lens that produces a very nice bokeh. Nice contrast and balanced. Compound 6 elements in 5 groups. He is objective has no impediment when making videos, or photos.

Pros: sharpness, brightness, light and manageable, construction

Cons: No one in particular

Opinion: Purchased from a friend at €60, in my opinion it is worth many more. It strikes above all an unsuspected sharpness, good already at full aperture, especially in the center, but that already closing of a stop becomes excellent. Do not believe, if you think about the age of this optic (1972). Definitely not afraid of the 24 MP's of the Pentax K-3. The opening of f/1.8 allows to shoot without too many worries even in conditions of light not optimal, provided of course to focus well, because focusing with precision at full aperture, without autofocus, is anything but easy. Careful construction and robust materials, nothing to do with the "Plasticotti" of today, even of high range, but nevertheless it is small and quite light and it is very good. Also on my specimen the aperture and diaphragm nuts are perfect and make it enjoyable to use it. Color rendition that may seem slightly cold but it's actually very natural. The only detail that betrays the age of the project is the resistance to flare only discreet, but still in some cases does better than so many other peers. Having the M42 graft can fit to cameras of different brands with a simple adapter ring, but of course it makes the best of Pentax and, in general, with stabilised sensors. To have absolutely. Rated 10 full
