Pentacon Six Zeiss Biometar 80 f/2.8 on Pentax ...

Having a Zeiss Biometar 80/2.8 available, i decided to try my Pentacon Six to Pentax-K adapter.


Here's the lens attached to the adapter:


Focusing is quite easy, since the barrel rotates of almost 360°, the counterpart is that it is quite slow. And, also, i would have preferred a preset diaphragm mechanism, easier to use on a DSLR. Nevertheless, the results, mostly taken between f/5.6 and f/8, seem to be quite promising. The pictures are straight from the raw images without PP, i just compensated a bit the exposure and set the sharpness to +1.



If interested in seeing more, the whole set is on my Flickr photostream.

More samples to be added, since i really like its color rendering and sharpness ...
