Topic: Zodiak 30mm f3,5

I bought it in 1993 or 94 , though I don't use it every day , I like it and I think I should use it more !
Here are a few pics to show its different renderings  , with a Kiev 60 , Pentacon 6 and slide films:

Lovely framing and use of the angle of view, working foregrounds and backgrounds in all those Pierre. I can't pick a favourite, they're all good!

Canon EOS30D, Sony NEX-3
Favourite M/F lenses: Nikkor 50/1.4 pre-AI, Zuiko 50/1.4, Flek 35/2.4, SP 35-80/2.8-3.8, Macro-Tak 50/4 preset *NEW* Jupiter-8 and more rangefinder lenses to come!
Favourite (and only) AF lens: Sigma 12-24

Re: Zodiak 30mm f3,5

Yes , the Zodiak and Zenitar 16mm are two extraordinary lenses !
I use the Zenitar with my Sony Nex-3 , it's really a very nice wide angle option :
