I’ll be honest, I’m not entirely sure where this came from, I found it in a box of lenses when I was looking for something else. Pretty sure I would have remembered buying it. It’s quite a lens. Must have been one of my several anonymous or semi-anonymous gifts from over the years.

I shot this lens at the end of the same roll I tested the 35mm Hexanon on, comparing it to the standard 50mm 1.7 in window light. It’s very sharp stopped down and only soft wide open and close up. Great fast lens and frankly just gorgeous. But, heavy.

An example of a full open shot using window light:

None, it’s a beauty.

Special Notes

Heavy. Very heavy. Like, this is some serious glass. 62mm filter size is nothing to sneeze at.
