Additional information:

The Meyer-Optik Görlitz Orestor 100 mm f/ 2.8  is a high-quality portrait lens for 35 mm  SRL cameras. It came in two variants: for the M42 screw mount (flange focal distance 45 mm).) and for the Exakta bayonet mount .

The lens came in two modifications: manual and with the instant-return aperture mechanism. The second modification is very rare. The version equipped with the instant-return aperture has 6 aperture blades, and not 15.

The Meyer-Optik Görlitz Orestor 100 mm  f/ 2.8 was manufactured  by the Meyer company in Dresden (GDR) in the  1960 – 70s.

After the merging of several companies and the foundation of the VEB Pentacon, the lens, slightly updated, came to be produced as the Pentacon 100/2.8.

The pictures taken with this lens are remarkable for its beautiful, soft and flexible image.

It has really beautiful and harmonious bokeh for which it, alongside with its 135 mm "cousin" lens with the same optical scheme, has been nicknamed the Bokeh Monster.

Contrast is medium. Sharpness is not bad even when the aperture is wide open.

The Meyer-Optik Görlitz Orestor 100 mmf/ 2.8 does not hold well back and side light, that's why it is recommended to use it only with the hood.

It  can be easily mounted via appropriate adapters on modern digital cameras .

The Meyer-Optik Görlitz Orestor 100 mm  f/2.8 is the best choice as a portrait lens. It is suitable for shooting fragments of nature. It is fit rather for unhurried artistic photography.
