A very effervescent picture, neat effect. I did some reading on that lens, lots of people after one. Beautiful piece, too. Made with only three lenses, it says. I hope I don't want one. Is yours a screw mount with converter? Rich

Thank you Rich for your comments.

I have to say this lens is quickly becoming one of my favorites. This is a lens that you just go out and experiment with to see what kind of magic you can produce. This lens is a beautiful piece for sure. The copy I had had a lot of internal dust and I was able to take the lens fully apart with my bare hands and a spanner wrench to give all three elements a full cleaning. Very simple and effective design. I have the m42 (screw type) mount which is the one to have for mounting to FF DSLRs. The cheaper exakta mount version, in most cases, will mount to a cropped DSLR.
