Meyer- Optik Görlitz Domiplan 50mm f/2.8 - comes from 'Trioplan 50 f/2.8'.
Produced in the years 1960-1990 at the end of the production appeared under different names such as 'Orestor 2.8/50', 'Automatic Lens 2.8/50', ' Pentaflex Color 2.8/50'.
I thought it would be better.
Renders colors a little less than other lenses of this era.
Minimum focusing distance (0.75 m ) does not allow you to take close-up pictures .
Construction of 3 elements in 3 groups it is a cooke triplet design - just like the famous Trioplan 100 f/2.8.
Bokeh can positively surprise - but it takes longer strong contribution to take a photo. We take this from this that the depth of focus at the maximum aperture is shallow and not sharp - the lens has a low optical resolution.. The lens from f/2.8 to f / 8 , including terribly blurry edges of the screen. On the plus side a great job against the light - very difficult to provoke the creation of flares. I hope that I just came across a copy of this and the others are much better . Also, the lens does not have an automatic switch jobs and to close the iris push pin . Not everyone has an adapter for M42 bolt lock - it is also perhaps a little difficult to work with him.
From f 2.8 to 8 difficult to focus - blurry corners.
The lens is small. Focus ring with low turnover makes it difficult to precisely sharpen the.
Build quality: ★★★★☆
Compact and solidly constructed - can not be criticized poor performance. The whole of the metal.
Market value / value of subjective: ★★★☆☆
Less than $ 35 is a very good price.
