It's a neat, though hefty, lens of pronounced optical qualities. It is a clone of the Carl Zeiss Jena 4/135 Sonnar of 1933. The basic design carried over the lamented 3.5/135 in the later Canon SLR line, a rather nice lens and quite a capable optick. Marc email@example.com FAX: +540/343-7315 Cha robh bas fir gun ghras fir!
