    Just got an m42 adapter, and walked around my dad's house with this lens I got from his Zenit camera.

    Looks pretty good to me, I'll have to do more shooting with it.

    All of these are straight OOC JPGs with the OM-D. I believe all of these are wide open at f/1.7

    Some say the Zenitar 50/1.7 is a hidden gem. With the microcontrast shown in your food shot, I can see why.

    I truly love this lens.

    The one big problem I found out, at least in my sample, is a kind of arc it creates when photographing lamp posts. Could you try yours to see if it occurs too? Thanks.
    It's like this:

    I got mine through eBay, in a kit with the Zenith 19 camera. It is in excellent condition, but I recommend looking for a seller with good reputation because there are many Russian lenses bad serviced around there.
