It happened so fast that day..I was at one of the used camera shops that I usually visit and spotted this little guy. I had heard a lot of reputation and thought I would give it a go. Looking at the cosmetic condition, this copy would surely impress nobody (some ding, tiny scratch on the glass, stiff aperture ring, etc.). However, the shop was selling at a reasonable price and I always wanted to try this lens..I immediately packed it home with a backup plan that it would at least be a great paper weight in the worst case.. After shooting with it for a few occasions, it has stayed on my camera since then. Works great wide open (f1.4), probably better in B&W (depending on your taste) and can focus super close (for rangefinder standard), like 0.45m or sth. Out of every single camera stuff I own, this is the best bang for the buck & the best purchase ever made for myself! If you spot one with a decent price, do not hesitate!

All shots were taken at f1.4 with a little help in bumping contrast/ curve. It's an amazing lens, nicely made, compact and produces great result!
