Volna-9 50mm, f2.8, M42 lens
Latest Review Posted Kiron 28mm F2 MC
Well, this lens is an f2 lens at 28mm and there aren't too many fast 28mm lenses that can be had for cheap. Impressive CA/PF control for an old lens.

I have many FA, DA limteds and FA*, so relatively this has to be a 8....rating is all realtive anyways.

The following samples were all take at f2, BUT ALL OF THEM POST-PROCESSED INCLUDING SHARPNESS....I did that, as only care what I can get out of the lens at the end after all post processing.

Included some comparison shots with the Tamron 17-50/2.8 and Pentax FA* 28/70/2.8 here:
