Additional information:

The Pentacon auto 29 mm  f/ 2.8  is a wide-angle prime lens for 35-мм SLR cameras with the M42 Screw mount.

It came in auto and electric modifications. The latter had multi-coating  (Picture 4)

It is sharp on stopping down and has some soft effect when wide open. It is not well resistant to back light and has  a pronounced distortion. Background blurring is not notable. It is good for macrography and perspective enhancement.
