The 135mm Super-Paragon arrived here as well. It's certainly produces interesting results! I think it might work well for some 'dreamy' couples portraits or maybe a 70s soft rock album cover I'll recirculate it back to the group when I've finished with it, or when I decide to get the Pentax version. Thanks edumad!

edit: got some nice flower photos out of it this evening! Thanks again!

Hi all,

When I got my SMCA 1.7 50mm it came with this:

while the 50mm was excellent, this was not.

is this fungus?

images are actually...reasonable...sometimes.

It's M42 mount with a built in hood. One iris element seems a bit sticky.

Anyway, you can have it for the postage.

Still shooting in the dark (literally and metaphorically)...
