Pentacon auto 2.8/135 MC on A7II

Recommended Posts

I got this Pentacon auto 2.8/135 MC (M42) literally for $10 and came with a Praktica body and a Tessar 2.8/50 Carl Zeiss Jena DDR. It is in almost new condition cosmetically but the focus ring is very stiff and there is a little "play" between the mount and the aperture ring, I figure both problems are probably fixable. I bought a Novoflex M42 adapter for it. For a telephoto, it is very compact and it is built like a tank plus it has an integrated hood.


I walked around the neighbourhoods this weekend a took a few shots. I was really surprised by the results. Focus was a bit hard to do wide open because of the stiff focus ring and I didn't feel like using my tripod so I got a bit of softness but overall most shots were quite sharp.
