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:

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.
