    I have big chance of my first adapted lense, a Pentacon 100mm f2,8.

    Does anybody have some infos about if it is good or not?

    It looks to me like a longer version of a Helios 44/2!

    :confused:

    what is the needs of this lens for you? from pentacon 100 to helios 44 i can see that is two different fl isn't?

    i did tried the pentacon 50/1.8, its offered crisp and slightly different from my zuiko om 50/1.8

    I think for portrait and short to medium range.

    I have a short lense for macro/close-up but feel I want to get a simple medium fixed lense!

    Well, perhaps you might wanna consider zoom lenses for you needs something from 35-100mm.

    I'm using 90/2.5 tamron sp for portrait, the pro is not to close with the subject and 50mm for food&product

    Try to see some 55/58 prime from Zuiko om, Konica Hexa, etc i see those lens also offers a great sharp result
