REVIEW: Auto Weistar 55mm
Posted by Bengt Köhler Sandberg 2012-05-09
f/1.7 to f/16
6 bladed aperure
Infinit to 0.5m (1.6ft)
Standard 35mm film size (24×36 mm negative)
Analogue B&W filmDownload full size image. Here (up to 5mb)
Wide open have a bit of glow but nice and sharp and that striking corner softness but it's there.
Glow is gone by f/2.8 and the lens is just great from here.
f/1.7 - f/2 - f/2.8 - f/4 - f/5.6 - f/8 - f/11 - f/16
Got the sun just over, and the lens handles this great.
Pictures taken with a Canon 500D at ISO100 and I used a M42 to Canon mount adapter.
Great build quality and everything got a nice and solid feel to it.
This is next to identical to the Auto Chinon 55mm f/1.7 it tumes of looks but this lens performs a lot better.
Not perfect wide open bit still very good.
Great image quality at all aperture
Great built quality
Glow wide open
