Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Primoplan 58mm f1.9 (M42)

it returned to me yesterday in great shape....

here she is next to my CZJ Biotar 58/2



and the blades:

colors are a bit subdued, but not unexpected for the lens' age

Nice! These colors donít look subdued, in the dog shot thereís maybe a loss of contrast that washed it out a little. Are you using a hood with it?

I'm with @UncleVanya ... those colours don't look subdued to me either. Lovely rendering, too!
