Pros: Light, good slow coating, compact.

Cons: At full opening it has problems with sharpness, contrast and CA. I would have expected better even to more closed diaphragms... but I have to note that my pentacon 50 f1.8 in m42 is considerably higher across the board. The Olympus 50 f1.8 car (zuiko) even better than both.

Opinion: In my humble opinion, having a copy practically as new in all, the fame of this lens is much more legendary than real. Those who praise so much of the merits have not tried the peers Olympus, pentacon, konica exanon, and Minolta rokkor. The same applies to the Pentax m 50 f1.4, inexorably detached from the Canon fd 50 1.4 and even the revuenon 50 1.4, not to mention the olympis and Minolta...

Pros: Sharpness, bokeh, colors

Cons: If we have to find one by force I would say surrender; A little too contraed. Assuming it can be considered a defect...

Opinion: A razor. Small, light, robust, functional and very sharp. It has an elegant bokeh and that vintage rendition, for the aficionados of the genre is a godsend, which combined with a crazy sharpness makes it a fabulous product. Remember that it is a vintage lens and then you work in total manual, which requires a minimum of expertise on various settings... Isn't this also the beauty of photography? :D I personally recommend it to anyone. Minimum cost maximum yield!

Pros: sharpness, colors, construction, compactness

Cons: if it were not for the fact that the internal "fin" of protection of the diaphragm transmission, create problems for my Eos 5D, I would say absolutely NOTHING

Opinion: It is a point that I have known practically since it entered the market. I tried it, almost by chance, on the Pentax MEsuper of my cousin, in the 80s and, although not an expert, I immediately noticed the incredible quality of this perspective: that sharpness and colors! every time I find it at the markets I buy it; pity not being able to use it, directly, on my old 5D. Since, however, I have several, one, (the aesthetically more battered) I sacrificed and I cut that inner flange (fin-shaped) that prevents grafting on Canon. What to say; excellent!

Pros: bright - clear - beautiful colors and warm - all

Cons: i dunno

Opinion: Beautiful, sharp wide open, very clear just closes. Warm, inviting colors. I noticed that in certain occasion change the color temperature according to the 'opening becoming more' cold closing. Quality / price ratio monstrous, to buy immediatamente!...............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Pros: Construction, sharpness, beautiful colors

Cons: For those who are used to always use only the autofocus might be a bit difficult at the beginning

Opinion: Objective purchased on the internet as new. Build quality excellent, nothing to do with the 50 1.8 canon, this is born in a period when the concept of "disposable" was not yet known. Sharpness crazy already at f / 1.7, brilliant colors and bokeh that I really like. It 'a long time I wanted to take a fifty, but the 1.8 canon, I was never convinced enough, I saw it in the store several times, all that plastic left me very puzzled, after taaante nights spent reading reviews on this site I decided to take the 40 2.8, great lens but f2.8 brightness and so I had little desire of 50ino is back stronger than prima.rnDopo reading around that Sigma and Tamron (also 50mm) seem to have problems f / b focus and to find a good copy it takes quite a bit of luck, I decided to take this jewel, manual, so you avoid these problemi.rnE 'came about by chance while looking for Zenit and seeing the pictures you can make me hit and I got subito.rnDalle first pRove has not lived up to expectations, worth every penny of the money spent, it's spectacular. Perhaps you could put some troubled people who are not very used to the manual focus (and not only in this case the diaphragm) but with a little practice you should be fine, then if you want to simplify your use during practice you can always mount the adapter ring with chip Focus confirmation fuoco.rnUnica downside: addictive, we need to remove it and leave it difficult to casa.rn
