Found this small (very small) lens as usual unnamed as bonus in a zenit auction, together with a pentacon auto 2,8/29. No russian, so I'm not sure if I keep it. It was obviously opened by someone, because it was not rebuilded correct. No focus to infinity possible. I tried a little bit to fix it and finally I managed it. And here are a few results. No zeiss effect but it's o.k. Wink

nice job on fixing it!!

I'd keep it, from the pictures you're showing here it looks really sharp and brings out nice colors.Smile

It's much more than OK to my eye! I see excellent images here.
The bokeh is better than Sonnar's.
Maybe it's not as sharp, but as a portrait lens I think it is probably better than the Sonnar.

Yes, keep it! The Meyer lenses are much better than their reputation!

having such a lens myself and having compared it with other lenses at 100mm I'm sure that
- most other lenses are sharper
- no other lens that I have produces nicer color and rendering

and it can be used on my Pentax as well as my wife's Canon dslr....

Michael, I saw sometimes to sell Pentacon 100mm f/2.8 lens for 100 GBP! One of my favorite portrait lens, hard to find good pieces from them. In my opinion this lens bokeh good as any more respected lens like Nikkor 85mm or Takumar 85mm

I got one of these the other day for ?25 or 37, complete with original box.

Just needs a little clean and blow inside and it's ready to rock.

It's the Meyer version I've got, and I was surprised at how small and dinky it is for a 100mm.

Yes, true such a small for 100mm lens.
