Görlitz Orestor 135mm f/2.8
Posted by Bengt Köhler Sandberg 2014-09-08
Made between 1966 to 1978.
Analogue B&W film
It's all metal and are very solid and well built.
The feel of this is also very good.
This is one of my favorite 135mm lenses and it's a really good one.
Image quality is great and it has one of the best looking bokeh.
The 15 bladed preset aperture keeps the bokeh round and smooth stopped down.
And it gives nice and contrasty images.
Sharpness wide open is good but not perfect.
It has a little curved focal plane so there is some corner softness at infinity.
But stop it down a little and you can get some really sharp images and this starts to show after f/4 - f/5.6.
However stopping it down all the way to f/32 is not always that great.
Loss in sharpness is expected but my copy also gives a little light spot in the middle.
It's not always that noticeable and I more or less never use this aperture but it could be a problem for those that do.
A very nice lens as long as you don't mind the preset aperture which can be a little slow to work with.

Light spot in the midde at f/32
