Image quality

Analogue B&W film
Renders great and have good shapness
except at the corners which is not uncommon wide open.

Build quality

Its from Russia with love!
All metal and is solid as a rock.


Conclusion

Apparently can some old Russian lenses image and built quality vary from lens to lens.
Im very happy with my copy which is not bad at all.

The focus is really light and smooth and you can use one finger without any problem.
Aperture ring is stepless and is well placed at the front of the lens.

Thumbs up:

Bokeh
Really smooth focus
10 bladed aperture

Thumbs down:
Light hotspot at smaller apertures
