  • a beauty
  • great build, fully metal
  • sharp, neven in the corners and fro f/3.5 on
  • very less aberrations
  • little crazy but nevertheless smooth bokeh
  • paints very smooth in the background
  • surprisingly good against bright light
  • less weight


  • only f/3.5


This is a fantastic lens, esp. regarding its age and its simplicity of construction. Optically much better than the over-hyped Trioplan, bokeh imho even better, but, okay, a little less crazy.

Additionally it works fantastic in the close-up range in addition with a helicoid.
