Re. the first one, M42 I assume, SMC rubber focus grip or S-M-C metal focus grip?
I have the 3 versions prior to the rubber focus grip & the SMC A, the S-M-C is my fave as it handles flare the best of them all, for rendering I like the 8 element the most.

I have been so pleased with the OM 50/3.5 I bought Sebboh's old OM 24/2.8; I am finding the combination of a tilt adapter and the OM glass truly excellent. I have blogged on this too, if anyone's interested:

And very likely I will get a few more of these wonderful lenses. As SLR lenses, they are not as small as rangefinder equivalents, but the glass can be superb. I have a number of CV lenses when I want small (the CV 35/2.5 is a gem).

Still, overall I prefer the Olys, even though they are a bit bigger.

The smaller OM's are in the RF size range, I compared my OM 21/3.5 with one of my Leica M's and they were more or less the same length, with the OM having a bit larger diameter.
Amazing what Olympus could do with their SLR lenses to make them that small and still have good quality.

I agree that the OMs are in the RF size range and they are amazingly compact for SLR lenses, but when you add the OM-NEX adapter, they do grow!

Still, perfectly useable and I will be getting more.

I just added several OM lenses:

28mm f2 MC
40mm f2
50mm f1.8 MIJ
100mm f2.8 MC
65-200mm f4 (nice lens but too big)

I'm going to have to pick up a digital camera I can use these on sooner or later...

I have a NEX-7 coming in tomorrow from a recent B&S deal here. Also got a C/Y Speedbooster on the way along with a 50 1.7. Contemplating adding another few C/Y lenses.

And picked up a good deal on a Voigtlander M mount adapter and a cheap PenF -> NEX adapter. I must be the Bly person to buy adapters in anticipation for adding lenses later on.

The C/Y 50 1.7 is a great little lens, as is the 28 2.8 and the 85 2.8 - I own all of them and have used them on native FF, NEX, m4/3 and Fuji X - I'd love to try them with a SB.

Hi,

Picked up my first Russian optic (for cameras...) during a recent trip to Germany (mint in original tube case). Don't really know much about this one (Tair-11A MC 135mm f2.8, M42 mount), but it has presets on aperture, and 20 blades for the iris. If anyone has some insights on this glass, please let me know...

Going to try it on film (EOS1V-HS) and digital for a bit...

Got a Voigtlander 90mm f/3.5 APO Lanthar about 6 weeks ago on end of line discount at Robert White's. Very impressed with it - a really great lens for close-up portraits, and with the close-up adapter fitted its no slouch for flowers and butterflies either.

I had the older "silver" m39 one, 133mm?
It had 20 blades also.
Sadly, was stolen.
I remember it was okay, didn't use it enough.
I dunno if I posted pics or not...

Picked up a Pentax SMC-M 50mm f/1.7 for my X-Pro 1. Even found an NIB original hood for it. Never saw one before. I think it's a good size for the X-Pro 1 since it is functionally a 75mm. It's quite easy to focus as well thanks to the focus peaking update.
