I found these shots when I was doing my selection..

I sold this lens -- I have to say that I didn't have to: it was a nice piece of glass Sad

Very nice!

I have the 1 Pentacon version of this lens. Its a good performer in middle and short distance focusing. Focused at infinity their sharpness decreases significantly.

I am encouraged by your results. I have just obtained one of these lenses on a Praktica and look forward to trying it out properly at the weekend on a K110D.

Nice shots! Especially #2.
A lens like this is on "Swedish Ebay" now. Meyer lenses usually go very cheap.

The seller forgot to mention the mount. Is it likely to be M42?

focusing to infinity -- it's a problem..

I most often see this lens in M42 and Exakta mount. In fact I don't think I have seen it in any other mount. Wasn't there a PB mount lens of this focal length once? Maybe it's the same design?

I never seen with PB , I think this lens was out from production when PB started.
