Item Description
.
As many of you know, the godfather/founder of bokeh is Mike Johnson (aka "The Online Photographer"). Here's what he said on his website about this Bronica lens - "The Zenzanon-S 150mm /3.5 is something of a secret weapon, with nearly perfect bokeh and a balanced soft/sharp look that is perfect for portraits."

There are a number of versions of this lens (I know because I bought some of the wrong versions before I found this one). It's difficult to know exactly which version Mike was referring to. However, I can assure you that this is indeed a nice copy of the lens that Mike Johnson considered to have "nearly perfect bokeh".

Being a confirmed Bokeholic I own 3 of these lenses. This one works like it did when new. No oil on blades. Smooth focus. Glass is excellent - with the usual micro dust inside and a few almost invisible tiny scratches on front element (no effect on images). Also, being a medium format lens, there's no vignetting on either your APS-C or Full Frame cameras. The front filter ring is damaged, but if careful, you can attach a filter to it.

B&H sells the Bronica SQ to K adapter that you see attached to this lens for $60. It enables you to mount this lens on your Pentax K camera.


You'll receive both this Bronica lens AND the adapter so you can immediately use it on your Pentax K mount camera. Also, you will receive a front cap and rear Pentax cap.


What am I looking for for a trade? Not sure and I'll consider all offers. However, I am partial to older, manual focus bokeh lenses!!

My absolute favorite MF lens. If I didn't already own it, I'd be all over it.

I have a couple of photo examples on Flickr taken with my Bronica 150mm f/3.5, mounted on my K-1. Love this lens.

On an APS-C camera, what would be the FOV of this lens?

Most of my current manual-focus prime bokeh lenses are 85 - 200mm.

The lenses I'm looking to obtain are MF faster primes 28mm - 40mm.

150 x 1.5 = Your answer

I"m surprised an experienced photographer with 1500 posts here doesn't know that.
