Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm f2.4 + NEX 7
1

During my 35mm test, I found in a local store Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm f2.4 for approx. 100 USD in a very good condition and M42 mount.



Photo found on Internet

I wouldn't probably start a new thread about this lens, if it didn't surprise me with its extremely short MFD of just bellow 20cm (7.48 in). That creates magnification of nearly 1:2.

At 250gr (8.8 oz), it is quite light but well made lens, that worth your consideration, if you are looking for this FL. For the price I managed to find it, it represents IMHO very good value, if you can live without AF and OSS.

Few shots with NEX 7, showing close focus ability. Doll head is approx. 4cm tall.

I am testing over twenty 35mm lenses right now, but this one comes out as a surprise, so I thought some of you might be interested...
