I'm sure it won't be a sleeper, since when I took this lens in my hands, I immediately liked it - typical for Russian lenses. They really hit my aesthetical centre!

Very good! I have same feel about Japanese lenses like Nikkor, Tamron, Konica Russians are not my favourite even if they are very good lenses.

Attila do you still have one J-21 at your place or should I bring one with me?

The pre-AI Nikkors also thrill me, as soon as I hold them.

Curious how the preferences can vary amongst people, I don't like the feel of Japanese lenses at all, they feel cheap to me - even when they are not.

You didn't like the "feel" of the Nikkors you sold to me, Orio?
I think they have a great feel, pleasant haptics. I really like those pre-AI lenses.
I haven't realised that in many other Japanese lenses though, definitely in my Tokina AT-X Pro 12-24, an AF lens that feels as solid as an old metal MF glass. My Mamiya 1.8/50 has that feel and - a little surprisingly - my Rikenon 1.7/50.

The pre-AI, yes. Although more for how they look like, than for how they feel in the hands.
I dislike the AI lenses and of course also the AF lenses.
I dislike the EF Canon lenses.
I visually like the FD Canon lenses but I never held one in my hands.
I dislike the look and feel of Yamahas (although I think that optically the ML lenses are amongst the best Japanese lenses)
Takumars feel ok to me, but not more than that.
The Tamrons that I have tried felt really cheap in my hands.
I never really tried Minoltas and Zuikos so I can not speak about them.

To summarize, I prefer lenses that feel solid and metal and heavy.

oops

I always confuse Yamaha and Yashica Embarassed

I guess Yamahas are considerably more expensive than Yashicas. Laughing Wink

But, Orio, maybe you should go into the nearest camera store and take the Tokina 12-24 in your hands. Then you know what I mean. It really feels nice.

I got great Soligor lens from Riku, many thanks!

Please post some sample pictures when you have time! I want to know how it performs with DSRL.


PostPosted: Tue Jul 31, 2007 9:57 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Sure I will. If perform well on my Olympus it will be perform very well on other DSLR too I guess. 2x crop factor pretty much, my Nikon D50 was less sensitive for lenses.

Attila, I received your Tamron today. Fast delivery between our countries!


PostPosted: Wed Aug 01, 2007 4:57 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Yes, postal services works fine, even to far countries like Japan or China. I had no problem ever with delivery time. Hopefully you will enjoy your new toy. Today I used your lens Soligor 28mm f2 C/D , seems a great lens. I will publish them later.

Not another 135mm, I'm happy with the MC Jupiter 37AM ...
Industa-50-2 would be just fine Wink

I have only a spare one that I can trade, but it has a small something in an inner lens, not fungus for sure, might be a small crack in the glass due to mount pressure. It does not show on photos, but enough to say that the lens is not pristine, although GoldCamera sold it to me as such... Mad
Alternatively, how much money do you evaluate it?


PostPosted: Fri Jan 25, 2008 7:35 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

I guess the price of the Takumar 135/3.5 is around 15~20 . I would prefer an opticaly defect free lens Wink

Also, I'm looking for a Jupiter-9 aperture blades set (or any J-9 with broken lenses / helico?d) as to repair mine.

I can also join several lenses in exchange to another !
