Filming

Build quality

Very good and solid.
Also have a great feel to it.


Conclusion

Really nice lens with good image and build quality.
The aperture ring have a little edge which I would suspect is for a specific camera so it don't have to stop down the lens for the light metering.
This little edge will hit most m42 adapters so you can't mount the lens all the way and the aperture ring will be stuck.
Not a big problem and this can very easily be filed down.

Thumbs up:
Image and build quality
Feel

Thumbs down:
Little edge on the aperture ring
