Hanimex Hanimar auto “s” 135mm f/2.8-22.0

This lens has a very atypical construction, it looks very nice from the front, with a nicely made metal built-in hood and a nice single coated front element.
Then it goes downhill as we look at the rest of the lens. The apperture ring pilots a rather uneven iris, and the manual/auto switch is more of a piece of metal sticking out than a switch.

The lens tried is very soft, and not only wide open. It was the worst performer in a panel of 10 other 135mm lens that were tested for sharpness.
