    Thanks for the review!
    Is it difficult to focus like a zebra or are they exactly the same?

      The same, difficult to work with him. Actually, therefore, the review is small, since in reality the lenses are very similar.

        Well, this amount of information is enough, you can follow the link to read the previous article.
        Such lenses are bought a little, they would rather prefer to buy a lens with a similar focal length (Jupiter-9, Vega-12, Wave-3… ..). By the way, if you compare it with a wave, what do you think is more interesting?

        Wave-3 seemed to me a more interesting lens, but this is a purely personal preference.

        And how did the Wave seem more interesting to you? It is interesting to know more. I was told that Carl Zeiss Jena is definitely better.

        With a good build, the six-lens Wave should be better. But in fact, everything is as usual, because I suppose MS Biometar will be more interesting.

        I saw the comment and decided to answer, too. These two lenses differ in bokeh patterns. A wave, if you remake it (I have it in a smaller case and with a 9-blade diaphragm) or find a successful specimen, is not inferior to a biometrics not in sharpness, not in contrast, it does not hold back light badly. But I repeat in the state in which I bought the wave it was horror, the sharpness is not very good and the glare in the center of the frame, but after the alteration, the wave lost all these problems.

    And I didn’t like both lenses - not sharp at all, some drunken clown. They are not at all like Zeiss ones. Worse than any of the high-aperture Soviet ones. And with MC Kaleinar 5N - the sky and ... not the earth - the mine.

    Did anyone shoot this glass on crop 1.5, what is the opinion?

    Hire, give pamper.
    The lens that fell into the hands is not very well redone:
    the diaphragm is manually covered with a lever, the infinity is already overshot for 7 mm to the stop.
    Therefore, sharpening is even more interesting :)

    The picture on my copy is hazy (as if the front lens has fogged up), but the drawing is really attractive. You have to hold the diaphragm with your finger, which is very inconvenient, probably the most inconvenient. The rest is a matter of creativity :)

    Dmitry, you probably threw the back or middle lens after cleaning, there you can easily confuse the lenses with the sides, take the optical circuit and check the position of the lenses.

    Good afternoon!
    The father-in-law has such a lens + CZ 180 / 2.8. I have micro 4/3 (crop 2), an adapter for Pentacon 6 costs around 750-800 UAH.
    Does it make sense to buy specifically for these lenses in terms of photo quality? or you can not bother and stop at the Soviet versions under the M42 and M39?
    Thank you!

      you need not bother and stop on any other options except medium-format glasses on micro 4/3 :) Put Jupiter 37A, for starters. On a double crop 270mm EGF, for the same 800 UAH you can find

      IMHO, for mikra - does not. The usual good Soviet or Zeiss poltinics + adapter will give a very tasty 100 mm ERF for portraits, and crop-2 will ensure the use of the sharpest part of the image.

    Hello, I really like all your reviews. Thanks for the great work. Tell me, they sell this copy at a price of 4000 rubles, according to the seller, the lens is in excellent condition. Do you think the price is normal?

    good evening . I'm a teapot in photography, but I really want to try out the lenses. I have read a lot and still don’t understand exactly which lens adapters are needed. I have a Canon 600 d, what adapters are needed for MC Biometar 2,8 / 80 Carl Zeiss Jena DDR, Vega 12b 2,8 / 90, Mir-1 2.8 / 37 automatic. To the world, I understand there is no adapter at all, homemade products are made from a case, but I don't have it either))) Thanks in advance! ))

      For the first two: Pentacon B (B) - Canon EF, forget about the World Automat.

    Zeiss has its own unique charm. In terms of the beauty of the picture, no other optics can surpass it.

    Good day! Thanks for the review)
    Please tell me as a specialist, I am a beginner in this business, they offer a Flektogon 4/20 wide-angle lens Carl Zeiss Jena DDR for 7500 UAH. Is the price adequate? Thanks for your reply in advance)

      This is the GDR optics - this is not quite a real Zeiss, it is initially weaker. I wouldn't buy the old shirik for modern multipixel cameras at all, their time is gone. You will most likely indulge in it and put it aside. I don’t even know what his price is, it’s more for collectors.
