Build quality

Very good and built like a tank.


Conclusion

Did expect a bit better image quality wide open but it renders nicely.
This is a quite old lens and I would guess somthing like the 50s with the exakta mount.
Build quality is as a rock like most camera gear from this time.
Quite lightweight and a tripod mount is always a nice plus.

Can be a bit tricky to focus a f/5.5 lens on a SLR intended for manual focus.
The focus aid doesn't work at that aperture.
Not a problem you find on a Digital SLR especially if you use liveview.

Thumbs up:
Built like a tank
15 bladed aperture
Fairly lightweight


Thumbs down:
Sharpness wide open
