I had this CZJ Sonnar 180/2.8 for some time already but didn´t take it out much, which was just about going to change. I took it with me while visiting my friend. And prior visiting him I took one frame of my daughter as well.
Lens is stocky, heavy, loaded with glass. I can add one thing about handling. Somehow I kept incidentally changing my aperture when focusing. I had to be quite careful about that otherwise I ended up with underexposed or overexposed shots.
Why I, you might wonder, keep using past tense when speaking about the lens?
Because I´m not its owner anymore as I sold my whole Pentacon Six set of camera, four lenses and some accessories. I´m aiming at different medium format camera now, so I hope it won´t take a long and I´ll be able to show you what I was after in the next blog post.
