Gens,

Reading and replying for Ferrick's Meyer-Optik Goerlitz Orestegor thread today made me clean the dust of my Penacon 200mm and get out to make some exercises of bokeh-building Very Happy
What i found was a moment (a thin slice of time of the day) exactly when i left home with a light perfect for the task.

Nice bokeh and very nice shots! I wish I can use the light as good as you do! I am now convinced that the Orestegor ad Pentacon 200/4 are of the same optical formula. Very Happy Very Happy

Beautiful images Renato.
Is this lens the latest version with multi coating?
Any chance you could post a picture of the lens itself.
Many thanks

Thanks Ferrick, Oldhand and Nurkov for your gently words, as soon as I can I'll photograph the lens and post the photo at this thread,

Best regards,

Renato

Beautiful shots.

I have the older non-auto Pentacon version. It will be interesting to compare all the variations from the Meyer through the later Pentacon versions.

Oldhand,

The lens is this one:

Showing the nice built-in hood - fully extended:


Fully retracted




Only six blades at the diaphragma - but i can live with it

Many thanks Renato.
I appreciate the time it took to take these images.
It is a lovely lens that takes beautiful images.
Six bladed diaphragms have been taking splendid pictures for many years.

OH,

Thank you, that's a nice pic. It seems you have a good copy of this lens too.
Glad to know warmth is arriving at your country, here we have now rain, and cold. ugh!

Cheers,

Renato

Hi,
I used my Pentacon 4/200 Auto MC today. Two pics for here to share:

Isar river

Electric tower with a little sun worshopper on the top

According to Marco Kroeger the optical design of the Pentacon 4/200 Auto was in 1979 the last really new design of ex Meyer Optics in Goerlitz with only very little CAs. This I wanted to proove with my shots and it seems right.
It may have been produced in Romania. So even in German Democratic Republic they've had an outsourcing.

I'd imagine they are since Meyer was effectively THE lens producer for Pentacon. (there's a Pentacon guide to lenses and optics published at the time of the merger and it stresses Meyer was the lens producer as such).

Ive got a Meyer 200/4 and an early Pentacon 200/4 and they're virtually identical aside from some exterior differences. I think the 2nd gen Pentacon version was probably when it switched to a six blade aperture though.

The best thing about the first gen Pentacon models is that you're effectively getting Meyer design/build for less cost simply because of the name change..

Check the first gen Pentacon 50/1.8, 135/2.8, 29/2.8 and 30/3.5 and you'll see what I mean. 😁

Hi,

according to the threads title "Pentacon Auto 4/200 MC pics with FF" and the optical formula respectively design I only wanted to indicate, that the Pentacon 4/200's optical formula is different from the Pentacon Auto 4/200 MC's optical formula.

Remaining part of my post deleted due to offtopic nonsense!-)
