    EP5 with Industar 50f3.5 Elmar

    The out of focus flowers look a bit strange, but the rose and buds just "pop" out almost like a FF camera. This is an awesome lens

    Nice and sharp : is this the collapsible one which you need to prevent collapsing for sensor safety?

    This is the collapsible lens, but it does not seem to hit the sensor at all. it does hit the body of the camera where the contacts are :tongue:

    A £7.50 eBay purchase, this tiny little lens seems pretty sharp, but on my one the focus ring turns with uneven resistance.

    the first Industar-50-2 (body) was sacrificed for the making of the "Indunon 38mm" (link here: Frankenlens Indunon 38mm f2.8 )
    But I saw potential in that little lens so I got another one in like-new conditions from Russia for $12
    Comparing it to my other budget 50mm it's pretty good wide open but probably at same level of a f2.8 lens stopped to f3.5 (which is wide open for the Industar)
    Here are some samples with respective f-stops, no editing to really show what the lens can/can't do
