Item for Sale
"Bokeh Monster" Pentacon 135mm 2.8 15 blades in M42 mount

Asking Price
135.00 USD

Item Location
Texas (United States)

Item Description
Pentacon 135mm 2.8 (the successor to Meyer Optik Orestor 135mm) 15 blades in M42 mount - $135

This lens is well renowned for the smoothness of its bokeh. A classic portrait lens, produces impressively sharp images when stopped down. The lens is fairly compact. It comes with an integrated hood.
Its specialty is how it renders the out-of-focus areas, which become smooth and creamy without "nervousness".

This copy of the lens is in good order. The glass is scratch & fungus free. A little dust, but nothing that impacts the photo. The aperture and focusing are smooth. The aperture blades show a little discoloration, but I don't think that's oil.

Some of those sample pics are stunning, especially when foreground and background are clearly separated through small depth of field or even just subject placement. What a wonderful lens to play with.
