Cons:maybe the passage of the diaphragm is a little strange..
Opinion:it's an optics that returns very natural colors, with the best bokeh ever seen. 12 slats of the diaphragm guys, the bokeh is a booling ball. Sharpness is great. the construction made in Germany is beautiful, all in metallic silver. The only drawback in my focus is very hard, so you have to crack it a little bit. It's for still photos! it's beautiful aesthetically, sexyy
Pros:Very compact and light, remarkable quality even for the present day, beautiful bokeh even with "soap bubbles", excellent readability of lights and shadows, very intense colors.
Cons:Nothing, given the palious cost for a goal!
Opinion:Recently bought, in black version with screw attack 42, at a few tens of euros, surprised me pleasantly. High resolution especially central but starting at f/5.6, under that diaphragm is relatively soft. It provides excellent results in closed diaphragms macro shots (mounted inverted or with classic extension tubes), for its performance in the finest details. A miscousation for a few euros that pays off a lot in terms of satisfaction!
Pros:Construction, lens and historical scheme, color quality, blurry, low cost
Cons:Yield to TA
Opinion:Historic CZJ lens with equally historic Tessar optical scheme. Mine is the aluminum version with 12-bladed diaphragm, multilayer coating ("red T") and M42 attachment. At TA it has a rather weak resolution and contrast but it is still very usable even on dense sensors, and then the low contrast to TA can also be considered an advantage. At f/4 it improves a lot and at f/5.6 excellent resolution and contrast, this in the center. It suffers a bit in the peripheral areas, like all the goals of the era that I tried, but at f/11 achieves a good uniformity on the whole image and you can also take landscape photos with good results. Beautiful colors and good blurred, especially in comparison with another 50mm vintage. Moderate vignette and almost no distortion. We add the very low cost and easy availability and I do not know what you can ask for more.
Opinion:Taken for a loaf of bread the ALU version. What about... Excellent optics, exciting color rendering, good sharpness and blurry really very nice. Very compact and at the same time solid and well-crafted optics. You just have to get used to the diaphragm preset system (it was stuck in my model, then unlocked with Zippo gasoline and lots of patience). Excellent rendering in macro images, also using extension tubes, not having the rear diaphragm activation pad, present on many M42 optics. As far as I'm concerned, considering also the cost and age of the project, it is a very advisable optics, which can not miss in the park of a vintage enthusiast.
Opinion:Let's start by saying that the Bokeh at F2.8 is fabulous if you like the soap bubble effect that is great at its peak if you shoot with the subject from 1 meter to 2 and with the background placed around 5 meters. The sharpness is impressive if you think it's 50-60 and is recoverable in PP. The top you'll see it at F11 perfect at the edges. In the evening it gives you an impressive 10-pointed star, but if you try to close at F16 and beyond it comes out gorgeous, but you lose sharpness, so here comes into play a nice multiexposure with F11 base and Recovery F16 stars. In the daytime I love it and I never take it out of the car so much that I decided to buy a Fujifilm x-e2 leaving it fixed. For many the sharpness is obsolete, but I prefer more this one that returns the "real" photo than the modern ones that look like photos exited from Autocad, however beautiful, but very unreal. I conclude by saying that for 40 euros is worth the expense and take home also excellent portraits. Only mole but I think it's a problem of mine, the inifinite is about 2. Once you know, go easy.
