I found a great condition M 75-150mm f/4 zoom the other day. I've heard great things about this lens and have wanted one for some time but hadn't found a good one for a decent price until now. I took it out yesterday and I'm very impressed. These were all taken wide open at f/4, mostly but not exclusively at 150mm.
This lens is quite exceptional for a zoom!

I've found it's quite exceptional for any kind of lens, it's certainly better than my M 135mm f/3.5.

Here are a few more shots, these ones stopped down.

Well, since we're showing off the 75-150, here are a few from earlier this year:

I love the design of that lens, the way the zoom works without anything obvious moving or turning.




More here.

Its bigger brother, the M 80-200 f4.5 is similar in design but somehow not as good in IQ.

Think positively, folks. At least it's always Spring or Summer somewhere on the planet!
