The fast maximum aperture allows you to isolate the subject from it's surroundings and render out of focus image areas with pleasing Bokeh. The lens also has a very close minimum focusing distance of just 20cm, allowing you to get great close up shots! Featuring a very sturdy build quality, this lens really looks superb, and delivers unique results that really make images "pop" and have a 3d look to them.The fast maximum aperture also enables you to shoot in lower light levels without needing a flash compared to slower lenses such as DSLR "kit" lenses. The lens comes supplied with an adapter to allow it to fit Canon EOS DSLR cameras. It's a manual lens so focusing and aperture need to be adjusted manually but the camera will provide exposure control. Instructions are included and with a few minutes of practice, you'll soon be getting great shots! The adapter is non destructive and when removed, the lens has a "M42" mount and it can be very easily and cheaply adapted to pretty much any camera available today. I have personally used this lens on my Canon 700d, a Sony A6000 and a Panasonic G1 and GH2!
There are M42 adapters available inexpensively for the following systems and more. The lens is in great working condition for it's age with just the usual signs of use and not abuse.The optics are crisp with no fungus, haze, scratches, chips or separated elements etc. Please note: There are some small white spots around the outside edge of some of the glass elements known as "schneider bubbles" but they have zero impact on the image quality of the lens. Just a common thing that happens with these lenses and purely cosmetic but nonetheless, I have priced the lens slightly lower than usual, so this is a great opportunity to grab a bargain!
Most sellers won't even mention it. I have included an image of it in the item photos just for the sake of completeness. Focus and aperture mechanisms are working correctly. The lens comes supplied with an M42 to Canon EF adapter and front + rear caps.
And here are some sample images taken with one of my Flektogons, to show you what they are capable of!
