    This little wonder lens was made in several variations thru the years after the Soviets took over the Zeiss factory in Germany. There was an aluminum body version, the zebra version that I have, a later 2.5 model that came in a couple of different body styles I think. At 35mm it is a very useful focal length either on the Speedbooter or just using it on regular APSC. I love this lens because of its built in close focus ability. Really makes it an all arounder.

    Here are a few shots from the other evening after a meal with a friend as I was driving home. All images unedited out of the camera jpegs. Hope you enjoy.

    Yeah dave, the third one is pretty nice, if pretty normal as well. I believe it and the first photo to give very good representations of the true character of a Flek.
