Additional information:

The Meyer-Optik Görlitz Orestor 135 mm f/ 2.8   is an excellent portrait lens for 35 mm SLR cameras. It came in two variants: for the M42 screw mount (flange focal distance 45.5 mm).) and for the Exakta bayonet mount .

Sometimes, though not very often, you can come across it on the secondary market. The price-quality relationship is very good.

The Meyer-Optik Görlitz Orestor 135 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 135/2.8.

There is an optical twin  of the lens with a shorter focal length of 100 mm.

The lens is rated high by photographers' communities for its bokeh and generated image. The principal advantages of this lens are good contrast, soft tonal transitions, flexibility and  amazing bokeh.

There is a peculiar detail about its bokeh. On western websites and photo forums it is called  the Bokeh Monster and the Bokeh King. According to many photographers, the bokeh of this lens may be regarded as standard  for portrait lenses.

The Meyer-Optik Görlitz Orestor 135 mm  f/ 2.8 holds back and side light rather well. It is recommended to use it with a hood.

Via appropriate adapters the lens can be easily mounted on modern digital SRL and mirrorless cameras.

The Meyer-Optik Görlitz Orestor 135 mm  f/ 2.8 is recommended as an excellent portrait lens. Besides, this lens is fit for all types of artistic photography where shallow depth of  field and beautiful bokeh are important.
