Really nice work. What mount is that in? I collect short teles in exakta mount and zebra livery. Might be something to seek out.

Good performer, great looking lens and my favourite forum model Razz

Interesting, this one looks as good as the 85mm version is bad. I.e. this one looks really good but the 5.6/85 Telexon is awful.

Thank you guys, I forgot to mention that these samples are with PP. It is a lens for Braun Paxette, m39 screw mount and 44mm flange focal distance. IQ is like an average 135mm when it comes to sharpness and contrast which is decent as there is many good performers in the 135mm segment. I really like the bokeh on this one, and of course the looks of the lens is very beautiful with zebra pattern on both negative and positive surface. Build quality is good, but the focus is tighter than it should be on my copy.

There are better performers, but most of them not as pretty Wink

Ha ha, you talk about that 90mm Telexon every time I show a different lens for Braun. But you are right, the 90mm is not very good. Wink

Looks not bad. I have it somewhere, too but wasn*t excited about it. Looks good outside tho.

Sorry, didn't realise I did!

It's the only Paxette lens I've had, apart from a Staeble Kata 45 that was so badly fungussed and scratched it was pointless to try to use for anything serious.

I do have a few other Staeble lenses, projector ones and repro ones and they are as good as the other makers of their time.

I have a few images on my insta using a poor example of a Staeble telexon 135mm on a Sony a7iii if it interests anyone.

When try to focus on things any further away the resolution seems bad but to be fair to the lens it has fungus damage

Just curious. Since there's some post how much of the color is lens character? I love the color of the images.

Really nice work. I like the rendering of the lens as well. You have been able to achieve a range of effects. The bokeh in the duck pic and the portrait has a distinctive, pronounced texture, while the lantern and pigeon pics have some texture as well, but at a smoother level. As an aside, the new Adobe Camera Raw controls: texture, clarity, and dehaze also have interesting effects on bokeh.

I have one of these handsome lens on the shelf. Based on your impressive results, I will have to try it out again, along with the other Paxette mount short teles: 85 f/5.6 Staebel-Telon and the 90 mm f/3.8 Roeschlein-Kreuznach.

Best,

Paul

I have this one in Paxette and Leica fit. A nice lens indeed.

Agreed. I'm keeping my one for that reason alone, and I have other lenses for which the same is true.

I found a pretty copy of this lens. Mine is clean optically as well. The focus is not stiff, but has a bit of hesitancy through the middle range. It came with the original Staeble front cap but no base cap.
