Apparently no thread for this lens exists, so here we go...

All photos shot wide open except the last one at f4.0. All are SOOC untouched jpgs. Apologies again for running out of interesting things to photograph at my house -

Even at f2.8 you can achieve a very pleasing blurred background.

My initial impressions? This lens will do great on my film camera, but the experience wasn’t quite as nice as the Yashica 50mm I just posted about. This lens flared easily even inside under controlled lighting. It was harder for the camera to focus peak with then the 50mm. And for artsy indoors stuff, the focal length of 28mm is just so so. It does appear to be plenty sharp given its age, and as mentioned, will be a great wide angle film lens when given consideration for flare. Less fun on a digital camera however, albeit not bad by any means, but it just won’t be living on my digital camera bodies.

I haven’t done an adapted lens/music selection in awhile. Currently playing a classic...imho.
