Nice, the Pentacons are really nice lenses.
The Kadlubek lens catalog estimantes about 50 Euro for a 2.8/135 in mint condition. Which is a bargain if you consider the performance!

Pentacon and Meyers rather than Meyers are hidden diamonds, low respected lens this my luck I bought around 8-10 pieces from Pentacon 135mm variants. I found older are better, sure I always would to see this Smile

Yes, sometimes you still can find some gems under all the overpriced lenses!

Can you tell me what is the value of SMC Takumar 85mm f/1.8 M42 ?

Sure!

It is listed with a price of 204,- in the catalogue.

These prices refer to lenses in absolute mint condition sold by professional vendors. Thus you can get most lenses cheaper on eBay, still.

P.S.: Because of your pics and report I just have bought a Pentacon 2.8/135 the other day. I watched many auctions and finally got on for about 15,- (plus 4,- for shipping). I'm waiting for delivery.
I realized that my good 135mm lenses all start at f3.5 (or f4) and my f2.8/135 do not perform equally well. They are not bad but not as good as my CZJ or Jupiter.

Thank you! I so proud about this picture, this is a good sample why I don't do bookshelf test and other technical tests.
