This lens had me intrigued for some time.... 35mm, M-mount and Sonnar-design.... A local store has a silver one discounted to such a degree that it was cheaper than ordering one in China... how could I resist, cheap and next day delivery Whoo Turtle

It just came in, and did not even adjust the focus (which sometimes is needed apparently)

The bokeh has indeed some Sonnar-tendencies, which makes this lens a great companion to my Jupiter 3. Of course at 35mm and 2.0, the bokeh is less pronounced than on a 1.5/50, but it's nice nontheless.

It's considerably heavier than you would expect for a chinese lens of this compact size, and the haptics are great, focus with the tab is quick and confident, in 90 degrees from 0.7m tot infinity.

All in all, a pleasant surprise this lens.

Here a few boring test images, made with my Monochrom.



#1 - f/5.6


#2 - f/2.8


#3 - f/2.0

Thank you Tom!

Today I took the lens out to street&bar. I have to be carefull to not have horizontal lines near the edge of the frame.
The lens has very noticeable barrel distortion, even visible on the crappy LCD of the Monochrom Mr. Green But for my normal pub&people-stuff, it shouldn't matter. Otherwise, it's totally fine, and since I don't shoot architecture, its not a big issue for me.

At the cinema.

The distortion is pretty obvious due to the pattern on the ceiling. However, it learned me the lens is very usable in low light / indoors situations.

And some more bokeh, first some foreground-bokeh, and then 2 more background bokeh...
