35mm F3.5 page 3

I thought a group photo of the different M42 35mm F3.5 UV-useable lenses I have would be good – I have tested them for UV and will be publishing results shortly in another post (stay tuned). They are all full-frame lenses, so will cover the full sensor, though each of these will need to be stopped down to F5.6-8 for better results.

Note: do be aware that some of these brands such as Photax, Soligor and Prinzgalaxy have 35mm F3.5 lenses which are rebadged from other manufacturers, and which perform significantly less well for UV; I know, as I have bought a few other versions of them and found them unsuitable.

I will do a separate post on the Soligor 35mm F3.5 lens as well at some point, as it has a lot of potential as a UV-imaging lens.
