Period of use: 24 months

Strengths:

Definite Tessar look to images. Very well designed small lens with good IQ.


Weaknesses:

Well designed, but not well implemented. Various mechanical aspects are a little coarse, but optics are fine.


Comments:

Probably the Tessar to get if you want to try a Tessar; it's cheap and good.

Mine is nowhere near as soft wide open as the images posted here show.
