f/1.8 - f/2.8 - f/4 - f/5.6 - f/8 - f/11 - f/16
Not the best but still good.
Very good and built like a tank.
Also have a nice feel to it.
This was my favorite standard lens when I used a digital SLR but sold this when I went over to my analogue Nikon equipment.
Which I regret after picking up the love for m42 lenses again.
But now I found a nice new copy and can see why I loved this lens before.
It's a awesome lens and a greatly underappreciated one considering what you can buy this for with some luck.
Compare this to my now favorite SMC Takumar 55mm f/1.8 which is a renowned as a great lens.
This have a tiny bit better corner softness but little worse bokeh.
The Takumar have extremely good feel and this have a nice quality feel but not as good as the Takumar.
