This is a lens with a lot of opinions, some say it's crap, others love it. I had one, long time ago. It looked like new, operated like new, but it NEVER gave me one single satisfying picture! It wasn't sharp, even at f/8.

I sold it, and for a short while i had another one, again : no luck.

So i gave up on them......

Today i received an old bag with a camera and some lenses, and one of them is the Pentacon 2.8/29 electric. And guess what?? It's sharp!! Well, actually IT IS GREAT!!!

Just some quick snaps, straight jpeg from the NEX3, nothing PP-ed, f/5.6.
