To be honest my expectations where very low for a 15 euro lens that needed cleaning. After cleaning the helicoid and aplying new grease it is easier to handle but still stiff.
Not a really sharp lens at maximum aperture (f/4), but fine if stopped down one o two steps.
It's 15 aperture blade system help to mantain a round shaped higlights.
Color is ok for such an old lens, a bit less warmer than my Canons and more closer to my Nikons.
As DSLR user I cannot recommend this lens as it is very difficult to nail the focus using the optical viewfinder, a lens with wider aperture (f/2.8 for example) is easier to handle than this f/4.
If you wanted a cheap vintage manual focus lens under 50 euros this is the lens you where looking for, but a 135mm f/2.8 will be more interesting than this f/4. And 135mm f/2.8 are very common.
shiny, draws attention
