I decided to give a seconc chance to this old manual lens, and I have to admit that, in situations when you have the time to adjust the focus with its very slow manual ring, it produces very pleasent pics, both for sharpness, colour and expecially bokeh.

Definitely I should get an equivalent wide lens now.

It does have nice bokeh. Is this an M42 mount lens?

Yes, it's a m42 lens. The bokeh comes from a 15 blades iris, when modern lenses have 8-9 usually.

My only problem is that with my adapter I lose infinity focus, anyone has a link to one working well?

Hi Lando,

This will give you infinity focus ... Jack
