Latest Review Posted Pentacon auto multi coating 50mm F1.8
I've only had this lens for two days, and the aperture needs to be cleaned and relubed, but it's already a favorite and my flower lens. Until I can tend to the aperture, I'm shooting with it wide-open and often at minimum focus distance. It's extremely sharp wide-open and has great contrast, renders colors very well and has the creamy bokeh I like. My copy was made in 1958 and has only a single coating but that might be an advantage as far as contrast goes. I found it in a shop in Arequipa, Peru. The seller wanted $50 but readily accepted the $15 I offered.
