The 45mm f2.8 might have been a cheap M42 for the cheap camera, as the camera construction is poor in that it wasn't made to last....but I did like the camera and if I could solve the intermittent light leak, would use it again...erm minus the lens Wink Anyway I shouldn't really complain as I got the camera plus three new M42 extension tubes in a case for 1.50.

Very under-rated lens but worth acquiring.
Here are two more from this afternoon

This lens uses a seven element design similar to the famous Pancolar 55mm f1.4.
Here is a portrait shot wide open at f1.4

Thank you Martin.
It also handles colour quite well:
This one also shot at f1.4

There are commercial adapters available also for EOS-M, Nikon Z, Micro 4 thirds, and Fuji GFX - as well as Sony E from the same vendor.

The depth of field at f1.4 is paper thin at portrait distances.
Here it doesn't matter so much as the eyes were downcast.
Note the background bokeh - a pebbly path with fallen leaf highlights - well handled I think.

#1


Here I missed the eyes with my focusing but it is a pleasing portrait none the less.

#2

This gentle halo which does not compromise the lens' sharpness and the watercolour bokeh give a specially nice impression of the shots. Congrats for the fine exploration and presentation of the lens quality!
