    Thanks Nick. I recently came across a few Petri lenses so I thought I would give them a try. Not at all bad really. Low contrast lenses, but that can be fixed in post. As witnessed by photo #2 that you liked. :) What is impressive is the smoothness of the bokeh. Photo 3 has had no processing done to it so it gives a bit more realistic interpretation of the lens. But the bokeh from both is very pleasing to me.

    I am amazed at the actual condition of the 28/3.5. Its basically brand new. For a lens made sometimes in the 60's it doesnt have a mark on it and is completely indistinguishable from a new lens.
