|They look good to m. I have a few dialytes for use on my large format cameras and I like em, they are very sharp, usually sharper than a contemporary Tessar, but lower contrast. Another interesting thing about dialytes is they don't sharpen up on stopping down, they are as sharp wide open as they are gonna get. Also, the image circle is quite small for the focal length and the field is close to flat, they are also fairly close to uniformly sharp across the image circle. Quite different characteristics to most lens types.
I don't care who designed it, who made it or what country it comes from - I just enjoy using it!
