Good morning,

I have a question for the manual lenses experts on the Forum.... I know this lens is fairly rare. Any idea on its performance and value? I might have found one for sale.

Thanks to all!

It's only rare because it was around at a time when most users were moving to the 28mm. Manufacturers still had a 35mm in their ranges but they were on the way out. Really rare will be the M series 35mm f1.4 which never made it into the marketplace, although I believe a few examples do exist.

It should be a fine lens, as we would expect from any marque 35mm lens of its day.
Best regards, John

I had the M 35mm f/2 but sold it because it wasn't any better
than a zoom lens
