MC Mir 24m 35 mm f/ 2, m42 mount Exc., Tested
Multi-coated version of this lens; film tested on a Pentax ME Super and results were fantastic; portra 400 pushed to 1600 at night, great colors and bokeh. This lens has a dent visible on the outside (top of lens on first photo), however the lens is totally clean and clean of any and all issues (no haze fungus etc), dust seen in one photo is just on top; the dent looks kind of cool actually. Easy to use, aperture is snappy, and rings all turn well. Comes with a back cap, wrapped well, can see in person before purchase if so desire.
M42 mount is easy to adapt to DSLR cameras; shooting Iceland with this lens is fantastic at 35mm focal for landscapes. Great on film cameras (m42, pentax k, etc.)
