This is the zebra version. Paid 30 euro for very good example, can be had much cheaper. Aperture 2.8, soft Detail from above, nice "glow" Aperture 4, much better Aperture 5.6, pretty nice Very typical Tessar behaviour. Tessars were very popular in P&S and enlarging lenses. Quite many macros are tessars too. Much cheaper to make than planars (or rather double gauss lenses). Typical is very good performance stopped down and soft wide open. Tessars are easy to make such a way that they focus very close. This lens has got minimum focus distance of 30 cm (magnification of 1:4). With 11mm extension tube will have magnification of 1:2 so will work as poor man's macro. Tessars made to macro lenses are of course of much better quality. I will try to shoot some portraits with it next weekend. May be fun lens for that.
