Latest Review Posted Soligor C/D 35mm f2 P (M42 mount)
I used this lens as my Single In Challenge lens for April '19


what a surprise this lens is - able to produce stunningly sharp, contrasty, color-rich shots, with a close-focusing ability (MFD of about 9 inches) that was quite useful throughout the month...


you can tell its age when the light gets bright and strong, however, with lost contrast and color-shifts, especially noticeable in blue sky shots in broad daylight - careful management of light (maybe a filter?) is key if you are out in the fields and wanting to capture a landscape...


this M42 lens produced great shots all month long on my K-5 IIs, but I found that it is nearly hopeless wide open at f2, so I shot mostly at f4 and beyond all month...


the focus ring is well-damped, the aperture ring has a lovely snickety feel to it - just a joy to use...


first a couple shots of the lens itself, since it is rarely seen:

and what to expect from the lens:
