Meyer-optik Görlitz Lydith 30mm
                                f/3.5

Specs:

Lens:
30mm

Aperture:
f/3.5 to f/22
10 bladed aperture

Focus:
Infinit to 0.33m (1,1ft)

Mount:
M42

Covers:
Standard 35mm film size (24×36 mm negative)


Image quality

Great center sharpness at all aperture.
Renders really nice with great contrast etc.
Noticeable corner softness from f/3.5 to f/5.6 on a full frame camera but the far edges still got little softness throughout all the apertures.

Build quality

All metal and built like a tank.


Conclusion

Really nice lens!
I did expect a little better corner softness but I would not say that is a big issue.
But it renders great is sharp and overall a great lens.

Thumbs up:
Center sharpness
Renders (contrast etc.)
Great bokeh

Thumbs down:
Corner softness at bigger apertures.
