Lens Review Date: January 12, 2016 I can recommend this lens: Yes | Price: $130.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Creamy bokeh, Star shaped aperture stopped down sharp
Cons: Star shaped bokeh
Sharpness: 9    Aberrations: 8    Bokeh: 10    Handling: 8    Value: 7    Camera Used: A6000   

A very interesting lens, well built, sharp enough very smooth bokeh wide open and quite unusual star shaped highlights stopped down. Heres some sample shots taken with a combined Zhongyi Lens Turbo to give me its true focal length on my cropped sensor camera

Lens Review Date: May 6, 2009 I can recommend this lens: Yes | Price: $150.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Bokeh wide open.
Cons: M42 lens

The creamiest bokeh of any lens I've ever owned or seen. Nice sharpness and contrast with superb rendering. When stopped down, the highlight bokeh gets hexagonal which could be distracting.





The birds are fake wood birdes, it's not the bokeh making it look that way.


Hexagonal Bokeh
