Pictures taken with a Canon 500D at ISO100 and I used a M42 to Canon mount adapter
Can get quite a lot of flare.

Very solid and well put together.
Famous lens that is renowned for its nice bokeh and I can't say that i'm disappointed there.
Also seems to be popular to use as a macro lens with extension tubes.
With great center sharpness and nice bokeh makes this lens is ideal for that.
Most parts a great lens but not at everything.
Corner softness wide open
