Period of use: 2 years

Strengths:

simple lens, very sharp, nice design, smooth focus, not much problems about flares or distorsion. 


Weaknesses:

Filter thread is too small, causing a vignette if any filter used. Full manual aperture. f3.5 is actually "4 and a bit" stopping down to f4.0 has no visible effect on exposure.

This lens can not be adapted to digital full frame SLR. 


Comments:

Hate it or love it, this one is a 1950's basic lens. I really like it's sharpness and warm colours. It does great on skin tones. Bokeh is not like a 55mm or 90mm lens but if in close focus it looks pleasing and unique. I often replace the Canon EF 16-35mm 2.8L II by this lens, for shooting video interviews with the EOS 7d and other APS-C and S-35 cameras.

It's faster brother is the Westron 35mm f2.8 + automatic aperture, both share design with the 28mm f4.0. all three lenses have been calculated and designed by schneider kreuznach engineers. 

Override of close focus is possible by removing a screw, minimum focal distance closes up to c.a. 0.25m.

M42 standard adapters do not fit. this lens reqires an adapter without the ring that diables the automatic aperture function.
