Hi!
I got this lens few weeks ago but did not have time to try it yet...Here are thus my first samples with this great and quite rare lens I guess......I can't focus more than 2 meters with my Nikon so unfortunatly only closed-up!

1/


2/


3/


4/


5/


and an 100% crop straight from the cam:


It's not only a beautiful lens, it's also an incredible great performer (at least on my eyes!) Shocked ......
and you don't want to know how much I pay for it, you will not beleive it Very Happy ......

Thanks for looking Smile

ISCO lenses are great performers and most of them sadly go very cheap, cheap price not really help to keep them in good hands. I wish to see pictures from lens itself too. I never seen less than very good pictures from you so not only the lens Wink

well, i'm not realy agree with you, cheap price can simply allowed you to get a lens you could may be not afford at higher price and why cheap lens will not get in good hands Confused ....
anyway, thanks for your compliment Embarassed ......and here a picture of the lens:

A beauty indeed! If lens is cheap they have no respect like Konica Hexanons , Russian RF lenses etc. Many of them ending in trash can , due people not waist their time to sell them.

When I saw your lens and images,I got excited as they are beautiful.....the 4/150 looked just like your lens the same styling.I won't go OT as your lens deserves to shine Very Happy

nice images! sometimes it makes me wanna collect some of these lenses, but when I check the prices it soon becomes a thing of desire. I don't know where you guys get them "cheap" but 200 is a lot for me Confused

Nice find, this lens is quite rare and not often seen for sale Wink IQ also looks good like most ISCOs Very Happy

Thanks Roman.
May be it will surprise you but 200 is also A LOT for me.
Here in the Netherlands but also in France (my mother land), we have some good bargain secondhands marketplaces and I must admit than I have made some very good bargains (I guess I could say extremly good bargains!)......This lens for exemple, Ive got it for 50 incl a cam and an isco 2.8/50mm so quite far from 200 Wink ....
I'm not a reach guy, I'm just a lucky guy who have made some great bargains few years ago with selling lenses and with the money that I've won, I was abble to buy the great lenses I have now....
Does it makes me a good photographer, of course not! Does it makes me an happy collector, well probably yes but it makes me for sure an happy MF lenses user.....But Roman, when you've got talent, you don't need better lenses, do you think you will make better pictures from your beautiful country with zeiss or leica lenses? I don't think so Wink .....We have every day here exemples from guys who make some beautiful artistic pictures with "cheap" lenses and cheap cam so we all know than talent is much more important than the lens you use...In my case, my lenses help me to have confidence but unfortunatly does not help me to have talent ............

Dear Pascal,
If may I say one thing, your talent is with you.The photos are so beautiful's and they self talk about the author!
I soo your lens, they are very solid and I think they can beat some new and expensive lens! For the money you pay, happiness is almost each time more important that TALENT!
IN MY OPINION YOU DON'T NEED TALENT BECAUSE YOUR LENS HAS THAT!

I bought one for few years this lens but I was not so luky,was in very bat condition, but I have one almoust the same scala and I am very happy!Meyer-Optik Grlitz Trioplan 100mm f2.8 They are some artistic lens. Congratulation with your lens and hope you will enjoy that!

Have a great time!
Nico
