This post shares a few sample pictures and a video I took with my Sony Nex 6 camera fitted with an M42 mount Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Domiplan 50mm f/2.8 manual lens. I received this lens as part of a Praktica Nova 1B kit I bought from eBay last week and I’ve been interested in how the lens would perform. I may do a fuller review later, but for the moment I’m quite impressed with the quality of this lens, which was a bottom of the range intro lens for early praktica 35mm SLR’s.
It’s a nice small profile lens to use on the nex. The aperture ring is easy to adjust and the focus ring nicely damped – certainly easier to adjust than any of the takumar lenses I own. There is no auto/manual switch on this lens, so the small aperture control pin is pushed in with the nex to m42 adaptor and the aperture ring simply sets the iris.
