Inspired by Tharos I thought I would post some of my own 44-3 images.
I have two of these amazing lenses, an 84 and a 93. The earlier version is a notch better than the later due to better coating, and perhaps, better quality control. I refer to to the 44-3 as "the Jesus lens". I don't mean to be sacrilegious. It's just that the lens is that good!

Great set... I agree that the lense is really great and surprisingly cheap. If we go like this we will raise the prices Smile

My personal favourites are the leaves and the doll pictures.

All pix taken with the 84 model one or mixed?

These are some really great examples of what this lens can offer in the right hands - lovely work, and cool subjects Wink

Thank you very much Mal1905.
Tharos, It's a mixed set between the two lenses but it's definitely mostly the older one. Sorry I did not keep more exact track of things. I know it's not autofocus, but with this lens I feel like I got one of those expensive Pentax limiteds, or Canon L's, at a bargain price. Actually I'm doing the 44-3 a disservice by comparing it to any other manufacturer. It's definitely in a category of it's own. Belomo rules!

Great pics, i really liked them very much but number 1 is my fav.
I have 44-4 and i think there are differences between these 44 series.
Of course i appreciate the photographer Wink Good work Jeff Zen!
