They brought me a bunch of manual fifty dollars for the test and the Canon FD 50 mm f / 3.5 Macro was the last to reach. I take off the lid as usual and ... what is it ?! Yes, it is, in real terms, equal to our Industar-50-2! And all that we see from the outside is the deepest front frame, like the one that Industar-61 L / Z had ...
I was so impressed by the analogy with Industar-50-2 (dimensions, focal length, aperture!) That at first I didn't even see the inscription “Macro”. And only when I began to check the MDF, I was amazed to see that it was only 23 cm! And it was then that I had to study the lens more carefully ...
I'll tell you right away - I didn't want to fiddle with the Canon FD-Sony NEX adapter, which stubbornly did not close the aperture, and therefore I always shot open. So I can tell right away about the sharpness - it is GREAT! If he shoots like this with an open lens, then what can we expect with a closed aperture?
Vignetting... It is, where is without it in those years. But - remember my words about the open diaphragm.
Color rendition... Calm. Maybe even slightly muffled.
General atmosphere of the picture... Draws well, nice to the eye.
Back light... Holds badly.
Geometry... Weak. It is better not to shoot tall buildings from below.
Overall, I really liked the lens. In the pictures below, you will see that I have tried it on a wide variety of subjects. It's just that macro is not mine, although I tried to take some pictures with MDF and apply a crop.
If you get this lens at a low price - take it, you will not regret it. For macro photography, it is definitely suitable, and in other situations it will show itself quite well.
