Hello all,

There I post 10 pictures made - in a hot day - to test (two oh the lenses) the recentely aquired Porst (COSINA) set (Porst Reflex TL camera + Porst 2.8/55 + 2.8/35 + 2.8/135 + Agfatornic flash):

First, the Porst MC 135 mm / 2.8 lens:















and the Porst MC 2.8/35mm :







PS. Only resize ! and in camera (+1) sharpenig (Ptx.K100D)

Thanks for sharing and improve our knowledge about Porst lenses.

The 135mm lens seems to deliver very good results!!

Are the Porsts, rebadged Pentacons/Prakticars?
I ask because I used to have a Porst reflex, which was exactly the same camera as a Praktica camera, only, released for the West Germany market.

Hello,

Yes , there were made Porst rebadged Prakicas (CX and FX models I think) but also other brands (Cosina, Mamiya...). See this one: http://www.kamera-geschichte.de/files/alle_kameras_uebersicht_d.htm

Mine is this one, but the 135mm lens is a litte bit different (the focusing ring isn't placed in front but in the middle).

Here other samples but here I added a litte sharpening to look even sharper of course Smile

Hello,
I used M42 Porst 35/2.8 lens for weeks, but I am disappointed in its shots. I own the other M42 Porst 50/1.4, too and its quality is the end of my 50/1.4 list. Worse than Auto Revuonon.

Hello,

Here are some shots made , this time on Kodak Gold 200 with Porst Reflex TL camera:

FISHERMEN / Porst MC 2.8/35

In this case I think the pisture is overexposed, a lot even the river is quite well exposed though. Could be a camera problem ?
I should set the ISO to 320 or even 400 when it is loaded a 200 film ?
