    At least one Meyer version of this lens (zebra stripes) has a fifteen blade iris and stops down to f32. It’s a fabulous portrait lens with very smooth circular bokeh but is also great for tele lendscapes, very sharp. Focus helicoid goes almost the full 360 degrees, making focus slow but extremely precise. It’s a fabulous lens and the secondhand market hasn’t quite woken up to its true value yet: you can pick one up for way less than the expensive 35/2.4 Fleks and their ilk.

    A real good short telephoto lens,
    with a clean neutral render, sharp, whithout chromatic aberations,
    easy to find at a low price…

    Tr?s bon petit t?l?objectif,
    au rendu propre, neutre, piqu?, sans ab?rations chromatiques,
    facilement trouvable pour pas cher…
