As you know by now, if you follow me a bit. I love vintage lenses and lately have an affair with the Chinon 55mm f1.7. Pretty unknown but quite impressive when you use it. And I had promised in an earlier post to test him and his brothers out on my digital body. So I tested out the 55mm f1.7, the 135mm f2.8 and the 35mm f2.8. A classic starterset from times gone by.
First up the Chinon 55mm f1.7
Next up was the Chinon 135mm f2.8
And the final lens was the Chinon 35mm f2.8
Well this trio is paired up with the Chinon CX SLR , what makes it a fine set to use. For me the 55mm is the best of the three.I think the 35mm needs an internal clean, it is not always tack sharp, or it could be my old eyes. Considering they are more than 40y old, they perform pretty well.
