Pros: Color fidelity. Crisp from edge to edge. Weight and size. Excellent construction.

Cons: A little soft at TA. DKL attack. Small small focus ring.

Opinion: The Color Skopar–x f2.8 is a "standard" lens created for the Bessamatic series. I found a specimen paired with the Bessamatic Deluxe in such a perfect condition both aesthetic and mechanical as to seem to have come out of the box yesterday. It uses the DKL attack, not really widespread, and with some difficulty I found the correct adapter for my Techart. Adapter that must necessarily have the diaphragm ring as this type of lens uses a Synchro-Compur shutter mounted behind the lens, with this system, only the shutter speed can be changed on the lens itself, but if you want to cancel it and select a different f/stop, you can use the ring around the rewind knob. I knew the reputation of this set of lenses in giving very natural colors, faithful, and extremely sharp images. Intrigued I organized a quick shoot in an interior where the model was struck both by a cold natural light and by a reflected artificial hot light. And I was surprised by the perfect color response. As well as the almost total absence of chromatic aberrations and vignettes. It's not really a TA blade but it still returns a pleasantly soft subject. A closed wire and in the center the sharpness begins to be well perceptible and, then on intermediate diaphragms the frame is perfect from edge to edge. On a construction level it is magnificent, tiny and chromed, it weighs only 140 gr but you can perceive a great solidity. Given the small size, it's not really easy to operate on the focus ring. 40.5mm lampshon also this not easy to find chrome but luckily I had one for the Jupiter 9. In short, a small lens with great optical performance that gives a great shooting pleasure going back in the time of almost sixty years.
