    a: is a Maikar/Soligor 75mm f:1.9
    b: is a Wollensak 75mm f:4
    c: is a Som Berthiot 75mm f:2.5

    So been wanting a decent cheep 75mm MF lens, my favorite by far is the Maikar the lens itself feels nice and solid , the front element is over 1 1/2" beautiful, the color and shapness is excellent and as a bonus the edges in the photos have a kern Paillard feel. the second is the Som Berthiot just a nice solid obstructive lens, the color is a bit more muted than the Maikar/Soligor but is very nice none the less. the third is the Wollensak good for what it is f:4 lens can get them pretty cheap and a decent result for what it is.

    I'd love to see sample images, especially from the Som Berthiot, which I've had my eye on.

    Thanks! I think I like the Berthiot best, at least from the photos you've posted. I agree the Wollensak isn't very impressive.

    Another C-mount: Meopta Openar 80mm f/2.8

    Here's another C-mount, similar FL: 80mm f/2.8 Optenar. It's a Czech lens.

    optenar-052844.

    First wide-open at f/2.8:

    Stopping down just a little makes things much sharper:

    I think if you were to go to a 75mm you would be very happy with the Som Berthoit :smile:
