I just love your results Lahnet!
Which version of the Pentacon 135 are you using?
I ask because there are many. I own the last one but it does not seem to perform as well as yours.

Ballu, the good thing is that the 135mm lenses are really affordable and some offer great performance for little money.

A lovely set of pictures again Lahnet. I'm not sure what camera/metering mode etc you're using, but on my screen one or two of the pictures look possibly a little over-exposed, particularly the geese and the rowing boat. Maybe a little compensation is needed.

Thanks.

Yes I know, but remember the pictures I post here is from the first time these lenses is mounted on my camera. I hope that I will be able to post in the gallery some day Very Happy
I also must admit that I find it "hard" to work EV and MF on every picture. BUT it is also fun.

It's easy. You should write an article, insert some links to images and *submit*. Very Happy

Just kidding. They are worth showing in the gallery. Nobody expects perfection. And I think that nobody here qualifies his images as perfect. Perfection lies in the eyes of the viewer and everybody has different standards and opinions. We are here to share and learn from each other... at least mostly Twisted Evil

Hi lahnet I can move this thread to the gallery if you like, Really like this lens I have the pentacon version. It would be nice to compare the meyer side by side to if there are any physical differences.

Bob, here's the zebra Meyer version I won today. This was manufactured just before the Meyer name was replaced by Pentacon. Note the preset aperture ring near the front of the lens. This also has a 15 blade diaphragm. The later Pentacons have an A/M switch and the aperture dial close to the rear of the lens, and I think only 6 blades.

Let just keep it here Very Happy

As you might have guess by know, I am working my way through my "new" lenses and the comments i receive are really appreciated.

And yes - it could be nice to compare two lenses side by side. I guess we had to find something to take a picture of. Maybe a CD cover on a chair from 10 meteres. Outside i clear light. F8.

If we could agree to a standard picture, it would be easy to compare a lot of lenses.

I meant physically compare lenses. But yes I suppose taking same reference picture may work. Peter Mine is marked pentacon and has 15 blades + Zebra, externally It is identical, I am guessing internally as well.
