Wow! Sharp! Compact! No CAs! Donuts! Congrats!
Amazing! Why is this kind of lens so rare?
I guess you paid a lot money for it?

Thank you ! Yes I paid a lot for it, I think rare because was expensive when it did came from factory and wasn't sold in large amount.

Technically brilliant refer on their price level.

These came with two filters which fit at the back, and the original leaflet that came with it specified that a filter should always be fitted since it was part of the optical design.

Stunning photos Attila!
Call me crazy but I really enjoy the bokeh Very Happy

I have an offer for 800 to buy this lens in very good condition... but I just bought some very good lenses (from Contax G series) which are nearly untouched by me and I don't have liquid money so this has to wait Wink

Are there any other comparable lenses available?


A friend of mine is making his own mirror lenses for astrography... maybe I should try to ask him for a ~250mm lens Very Happy (he's usually producing something like ~2000mm f/15)
