Carl Zeiss Jena Pancolar 50mm f/1.8 Zebra M42 8 blades

Very good portrait lens. Women love the effect of his work. 
This is a version of the so-called Zebra. His yellow coating on the lens is a result of radioactive Thorium. 
This is rare version with eight blades aperture. The standard is six. A true diamond of a portrait lens. 
Very good job against the light. 
Very difficult to get a flare.

Optics: ★★★★☆
Sharp from f1.8, He tends to enhance reality by creating wonderful images.

Ergonomics: ★★★☆☆
Difficult to press the button on the side of the aperture. Not enough precise focusing.

Build quality: ★★★★☆
Solid lens.

Market value / value of subjective: ★★★★★
Less than $ 100 is a very good price.
