Yeah, if you like glow, and champagne bubbles, soft corners, and feeble resolution; but it has it's moments ...

I quite like the pre-asph 35 on my M-M. The lens characteristics are the same as on other cameras-- tack sharp at f4 and up, nice glow and enough sharpness for me at f1.4

My copy must be back-focused at 1.4 in order to produce a sharp enough image-- if I focus accurately, it will come out too soft, hence the lens' poor reputation amongst some. It was optimized for infinity focus at f2.8, I believe. The CV 35/1.4, in contrast, is reportedly optimized for focus at 1.4 with focus issues at f4. I usually shoot twice the frames at f1.4 to make sure I get the shot I want.

I love mine. I only use classic lenses on my M-M partly out of costing less but also because the Bayer-less sensor gets to the root of the matter so well. Where a Bayer camera might obscure more of that fine detail beneath the glow, the M-M still can capture the nuance. The above image was f4 I think.

I am curious as to how the Soviet lenses would do on this. For the above reason, I think they would be killer!

Definite buy!
