Exaktar 35mm
serial - 406391E
f range 2.8 - 16
focal range .8 - 16' - infinity
6 blades
unknown mount
52mm filter

A gorgeous lens, razor sharp wide open, even sharper stopped down. Great color and contrast. A real gem. Not sure of who makes this lens (made in Japan) or designed it (Meyer-Optik Görlitz?) but it works very nice.

You sir, deserve an applaud.

All these great reviews on Legacy lenses must have been a TON of work. I for one, really appreciate it!

Have a great day!

I'm curious about the "unknown mount". Which adapter did you use with this lens?

According to this site, it is probably an Exacta lens circa 1967.

Thanks For all the replies, I hurt my back about 6 months ago and have not been able to do much, so I "ebayed" a bunch of lenses. and have been playing with them,
