    lens is very sharp and it has good color rendering Recommend for close up works even on DSLR bodies I guess very good performer on it s original place on many Russian Leica clones like Zorki cameras Read more Olympus OM Zuiko lens list Olympus OM Zuiko lens list Made by Olympus Inc Abbreviations SC single coated MC multi coated S in name Economy product line E Zuiko has 5 elements F Zuiko 6 elements G Zuiko 7 elements and so on Read more Olympus OM 135mm f 3 5 Lens Review Very sharp outstanding quality lens This lens was my first Olympus lens in my collection I didn t expected much after many excellent 135mm lenses like Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar 135mm f 2 8 Nikkor 135mm f 3 5 etc I thought I have all what I want I bought this lens just for testing and sell out after test is done I have to change my mind This lens is excellent from every aspects very well built optically superb and very good looking too Close focusing distance not good as CZJ Sonnar 135mm this is only the minus compare with Sonnar Read more Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 20mm f 2 8 MC M42 lens review One of the most famous East German Carl Zeiss lens it has excellent reputation and highly priced probably most expensive East German Carl Zeiss lens Read more Vivitar 400mm f 5 6 Lens Review This lens looks good at first but has some serious issues Definitely not what one would expect from Vivitar Image quality is rather poor soft at f5 6 and slightly better at f8 acceptable sharpness at f11 Chromatic Aberrations CA are terrible awful red fringing on almost all pictures see samples it is even visible in the bokeh The lens seems to have some kind of coating but it is not very effective on the CA issues I did not notice any haze or lack of contrast so in that aspect the lens is fine Handling is easier than one would think The lens is not that long and can be hand held although there is an adjustable tripod collar Focusing is smooth and can be done pretty fast after some practice I would not recommend this lens unless you really need a telephoto and if you don t mind clearing the CA in post processing I d say it would be worth maximum 25 euros any higher than that and you can probably find something better but for under 25 euros it s acceptable I paid 10 euros by Tom De Nies Read more Novoflex 40cm f 5 6 Very sharp lens with nice bokeh Lens design is very simple Focusing is super fast almost fast as an AF lens Lens barrel made from aluminium so light weight compare with other 400mm lenses Easy to split for transporting much easier to handle than others Before I made any test shoots I was worry about how I able
