The Domiplan was a cut cost option for economic lens choice , and was rightfully enjoying its notorious reputation for performing so so in all aspect of its performance. In truth, it did archive its goal of putting a lens that would cost almost nothing to any M42 customers. And when employed properly ( shoot at 8.0, normal candid distance, with proper hood, and good lighting ) the lens actually perform quite reasonably well, The lens optical design is a fairly faithful replication of the Cooke triplet.
