REVIEW: Soligor 50mm f/1.8
Posted by Bengt Köhler Sandberg 2014-03-15
Analogue B&W film
Very well made and are solid as a rock.
The feel is also very good.
It looks and feels great but the aperture ring is a not very thick and is just after the lens mount.
Not a problem and this works just as good as any when I used this on a old SLR made with a M42 mount.
But it's a little more fiddly and not much room for fingers with my digital Canon + M42 to EOS adapter.
Image quality wide is quite good sharpness all over but also has noticeable glow.
Stop it down a little and it is very nice, go down to f/5.6-f/8 and the sharpness is just amazing.
This sharpness is even quite good at f/16.
The bokeh can look a bit rough in some cases but I find it quite nice in most.
Overall a really nice one.
Great sharpness stopped down
