    But in general, the best fifty dollars, which, in my opinion, is between the Karl Zeiss lens and all the other fifty dollars in image quality, is Oreston 50mm 1: 1,8

      I'm waiting for proofs - how does it differ from the pentacon?

    Today I take a picture with both of them, but for now see how they are evaluated at the Pentax forum: This is Oreston

    But, as the photos promised, all the photos were taken in RAW and transferred without processing to Lightrum .jpg then each photo was reduced in size by 4 times by reducing the number of pixels on the side of the photo by 2 times. This one was made by the Pentacon.

    This photo was taken by Oreston, as for me, it turned out a little sharper

      Yes, but no more. The picture is identical. I don’t see the point of overpaying. They evaluate it differently stupidly because of the nameplate effect, no more.

    And this was done with a 55mm Super Reflex lens from Kozina, which I’m taking pictures of now, as I consider it more preferable for portraits (pay attention to the blur of the red car in the background). I hope it is not necessary to add that all 3 photos were taken from a tripod and at the same aperture of 2,0. Z.Y. For the third photo, I slightly pushed the tripod back, for the same scale, t, k, 55mm lens

    Well, for the sake of interest, I took another photo of the same teapot with an Enna Munchen Tele-Ennalyt 135mm 1: 2,8 lens on an open aperture. I hope you are satisfied with the response to your request.

      Well, in general, of course, 2.0 is not everywhere ice. But that is not what the pentacon is strong. In general, the main thing should be noted - that for those interested in these half-lines, it is worth looking for exactly M42 and it is in this latest mechversion with color scales as in the photo of the acrobats above. For portraits, it's easier to turn right away at 85 105 135, but that's another story. ATP Karen * for a mini-reviewer and photos.

        And by the way about Zeiss - holding in my hands the latest fur half a carl zeiss 50 f / 1.4 planar for Boot and Nikon and having driven a certain number of pictures through them at one time, for some reason I was not inspired enough to want to spend 800 on them as they cost then. Yes metal yes brand yes petals yes probably a good picture. But if in straight hands on adjacent diaphragms, practitioners give out about the same thing with an eye on the price and age, then why should we mold a hunchback? The MAIN THING is that at the time of its release in 2007, no one even thought about HD and even more so about 4k, so the question is how this optics will behave abroad 24-40 or more megapixels ... So that's it. And the practitioner on fulk 10-12 confidently conceals respect and respect to him!

    Good day! There is d5100. Which would be better suited - Helios 81H or Pentacon 50 1.8 ?? It seems like the first one should stand up without adapters and have infinity? On the other hand, there is still the question of which picture will be valued higher?

      On Nikon - Helios 81H of course. The site has articles about both Helios and the Pentacon.

      If you want a focus to infinity - buy Canon / Sony / Pentax. If you don't want to change your camera, look for optics with Nikon mounts or fully compatible optics through a ring (Soviet H mount, adapter A, medium format B and C mounts, for example).

      Kira different rear working segments. None of the technology for m42 thread on Nikon does not fit without alterations. Read the focus on infinity will not. Look for nikkors.

    I have a pentacon electric 1.8, the background twists steeper than the Helics 77e (I have three versions of them Valdai, Vologda and just 77m) I specifically compared ... in general, my favorite lens, Oreston is also there, but it is not very to me ..

    I inherited this from my father's practice. Really green, very soft on an open hole, but on f4 yesterday I shot a video for a music video in 4k VIA A CHINESE BOOSTER FOR $ 100 and was very pleased with the result - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKMsyCzffUE

    The only interesting thing about this glass is bokeshka. Everything else is a staff and a staff. On the open for everybody, but at f / 8 all the glasses are the same.
    And yes: Oreston differs from this pentacon only in name ...

        It is solved by disassembling, cleaning, lubricating and if necessary adjustment))).
        The simplest scheme, for the first time if at all from 0 spend hours 3. To figure it out to the screw. Then with closed eyes. There is nothing to break there. Disassembled all series of the model. Favorite glasses!) Therefore, do not be afraid of handles ...

      There, by default, plastic on the face and M42 are a stub on the tail. If it’s easier to buy an inexpensive uvshnik at 49 before a ban. So you’ll keep your optics and you won’t sow any other food.
