For sale is a rare and well respected portrait lens - Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 7,5cm f/1.5 T (coating), slim aluminum version in M42 screw mount. This is one of the most sought after legacy portrait lenses with a very interesting rendering that varies depending on the aperture, background structure and lighting. In general, lens has rather sharp mid frame with a pronounce swirly effect toward edges. If the background is more coherent though, lens will render very smooth bokeh with a sublime color palette. It is hard to explain what this lens can do without trying it.

Copy offered here is in a well used condition, mainly due to its age. I have been using it extensively and took a good care of it, but the age shows up. Optics: There are many faint cleaning marks on the front element, some dots and dust specks, some air bubbles from the production, a little coating damage close to the rim near the letter T.

It won't be fair to say - there is no impacts on the photo, but I haven't noticed any, if that means something. Mechanics: Both focusing and aperture turns smoothly but slightly on the heavier side. It was always like that (I own it for 8 years). Albeit I don't really see grease and oil on the aperture blades, traces could be there and expect some metal wearing. In short, this is used and very old lens and you shouldn't expect the like new one. However, I used it a lot and took some nice images with it that I won't be able with any other lens I know, including its clone - Russian Helios 40, Cyclop and similar. I enclosed few sample images captured with my Sony E mount cameras. If you want to own and shoot with the real legend, this is it.

What is included: Lens, original front cap (condition as on pictures, but it holds well), old rear cap nit sure if it's original, but it's not a modern replacement, brown leather pouch nice one but not original. Lens fits perfectly in though. The item "Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 7.5cm f/1.5 (75mm f/1.5) Slim version in M42 screw mount" is in sale since Sunday, September 19, 2021.
