    Cons: None really, depends what your expectations are. You cannot really compare it with a few thousand dollar costly Leitz Summilux or a the latest Zeiss Sonnar. Of course the later Leitz and Zeiss lenses are better build and have less distortions.

    Pros: Very small for this type of lens with f 1.5 maximum lens opening! Beautiful black finish. The lenses have nice amber coatings. It is already at f 1.5 quite a sharp lens. Once stopped down it is very sharp and beautiful rendering. The bokeh is very beautiful too. Considering its relatively low pricing, it is a steal of a lens for your Zorki, Fed and Leica.

    Summary: For its relatively low price a steal of a lens. Should be in everyones bag who uses a Leica (can be used on M-mount Leica with a cheap adapter), Zeiss Ikon rangefinder, Zorki, Fed or Voigtländer Bessa. The older types are also very good and wanted lenses. Btw this is NOT for KIEV/CONTAX!
