Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel

Flektogon to be tested with Zeiss’ s old lens. I got the final third generation black lens barrel. I will try the 35mm and the optimal angle of view for town photography at Inokashira Park.

Lens and manufacturer introduction

M42 Carl Zeiss Jena DDR Flektogon Black 35 mm F2.4
Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel
Fretcacton famous as a universal lens capable of stable reflection and close-up shooting even within the wide angle of single focus old lens.
I got the second generation fretagon of the zebra pattern at the beginning when I started the old lens last year, and I use it frequently in everyday from ease of use.

Because it was a lens of the East German Carl zeiss jena or its east-west integration seems to have disappeared its brand, it is a lens I would like to recommend as a lens to know in order to talk about the old lens.

It is an article that is frequently read in this blog, so I can tell you the popularity that is unabated as it is second place after Helios.
Based on its popularity and practicality, I thought about trying out the black column of Fretagon of different generations.

Today’s Agenda

· Measure the ability of 3rd generation of 35 mm Fretagon
· Fluent in Inokashira Park for the first time in my life

Bokeh taste, depiction around the frame, color

The focused surface is sharp, the blur is a wonderful depiction that softly melts while having a taste like painting.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel
Liberation F 2.4 I think that there are really few old lenses that can maintain this sharpness on the focus side.
With a universal lens that deals from landscape to close-ups.

Leave as far as this distance to dandelion, the ground is very beautifully blurred.
Even so, I am focusing around F4.0 so that the entire seeds of dandelion come into focus.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black lens barrel
Wonderful expression power even with silly flowers.
Both the front blur and the back blur are very beautiful and the focus side stands out greatly.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel
The coloring of the dark part is enough, too much-purpose and scary.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel
Here is not a cherry blossom, but a small white flower is piled up, it was supposed to be a beautiful shot where a small white flower dances when the wind blows, but it was quite difficult even for Frescheston to fluffy. I think that flowers are so small that it is impossible in the first place.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black lens barrel
Flower at the end of the road with standard shooting. There is no sense to say anything anymore.
The focusing surface, contrast, blur is also a modern lens feeling like feeling Oldness is not so noticeable, but the saturation feeling of highlights blurredness is especially like Oldness.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel
It was collapsed with a partial cake in the blurred part from the midtone to the highlight, and it was not parted out, but on the contrary it is a good taste.
After all, since the main is a focused side, it is good if there is a part of the blur that assists there, atmosphere is good, and Furetagon’s blur is a wonderful balance as its expression.

Resolution of focused surface, sharpness when focusing, aberration

This item is about taken at F8.0.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black lens barrel
The gradation expression from the closing of the shadow to the dropout of the highlight is expressed wonderfully beautifully and the degree of saturation where the last highlight melts is also too tasty.
Why can not it be fun and different depending on the lens so far?

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black lens barrel
Moderate sharpness and dense color paste. Is the third-generation black lens barrel still stable?
It is an impression that it looks more like a zebra than the second generation of rumors when it is similar.

In addition, the picture of Flektogon that I posted last year is another lens of the zebra pattern, I was taking with SONY α 7 II so the description on the camera side may be somewhat different from this 5 Dmark III.
As you can see immediately, 5 Dmark III has more sensitivity to ISO, I think that it is easier to give breadth of light and dark expression.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black lens barrel
Even so, this park and Flektogon 35mm of this day were just the right balance.
I want to take lots of scenery, sometimes I want to take a picture, I do not have any more old lenses.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel
There will be other lenses that are tightened to the shadow, but Fretcagon feels that the saturation of the highlight has the merit of being good as an old lens.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel
As a result, it seems that a slightly saturated taste when the highlight collapses, as a result, when entering the edge of the shadow part, the contrast gives an exquisite sense of the old feeling and film feeling.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel
Last year, it was like a frame that I liked with zebra pattern Fretagon. Feelings in this neighborhood are completely the same feeling.
If you want to make the highlight breakdown a little more, I think that the Russian lens Mir – 1 would be a better feeling.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel
When you take with Fretagon, you will want to make the most of the dark area anyway.
Like a monochrome, the contrast from shadows to highlights that are missing is beautiful.

Purchase route, repair and versatility, reference at purchase

Carl Zeiss Jena DDR Flektogon Black 35 mm F2.4
Flektogon 35 mm F2.4 black barrel

M42 mount, the shortest shooting distance 20 cm, made in 1978, six blades, 236 g.
The diaphragm was F 2.8 until the 2nd generation zebra pattern, but this black lens barrel has a margin slightly blurred with F 2.4.

Thankfully, the third generation of this time does not interfere with the mirror with 5 Dmark III.
Both of the previous generation silver lens barrel and Zebra lens barrel have mirror interference in 5 Dmark III and can not be used stably unless α 7 etc. However, this black lens barrel has no problem.
Other manufacturer’s quasi-wide-angle old lens Mir-1 37mm New and old, Primagon 35mm, Curtagon 28mm, etc. Overall There are mirror interference, and this Flektogon is appreciate usable with 5D.

Purchase on 100% transaction history on eBay with 100% Positive feedback and very good shop hill-walker.
Product description Aperture is smooth and positive. There is no scratch on the glass. The iris moves comfortably and lightly.
The rear lens cap is attached. There is no front cap, but the filter is wearing. The focus helicoid seems to be partially “dry”. Perhaps you should turn on a new lubricant.

There are few 4 pictures and there were no squeezed pictures that Nakayama emphasizes.

Although it was a negotiable company name that I have not seen much, it was a minus image, but bid was stopped at affordable price, that explanation of negative side was out, and 100% in 2,037 transaction history, Positive believe to purchase it.

The lens that I received was a nice feeling, the focus / helicoid was not bothers me at all, rather it was about whether the appearance feels aged deterioration over the picture.
Nakayama like to just capture properly, so it is not cloudy, if there is a scratch on the lens it is OK at all if it does not affect the reflection.

Flare, Ghost, Halation

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel
Thanks to the purchase of a rubber hood of 49 mm diameter, there was no photograph of which halation is anxious.
Flektogon Third generation coating I think that there is also excellent excuse, but even with backlight it keeps the contrast so far.

To be honest, I do not like the hood very much because it is an obstacle, but recently I came to worry about the details of the photograph and bought it for turning on as much as I care about the sun’s direction or Halle sharpness.
“marginwidth =” 0 “marginheight =” 0 “scrolling =” no “frameborder =” 0 “src =” // rcm-fe.amazon-adsystem.com/e “” / cm = 1 < There is no luxury street as per Amazon reviews, but even if you hit it because it is made of rubber OK! Adjust the height of the hood a little possible! Versatility High 49mm! It's easy to use. In addition, I checked the filter diameter of the lens owned for the first time by purchasing food, but it was almost 49 mm. Even so, thankfully, they are all of the same specifications and can be installed at the moment. The lid is troublesome because there are various differences, but it is a great story that it unified the filter system standard of the old lens.

Looking back and analyzing the pictures that I thought was able to be successful

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel
It is just 35 mm in composition, I also have a taste of Flektogon’s description and I like it as a moment.
This person, I think that it is the moment of writing a picture and confirming the scenery.
The diagonal straw hat is very delicious.

Directing direction of shooting, as a portrait lens

I think that I would like to do a perfect portrait at 35 mm angle of view from the front, but as a portrait I can not see my face well if I draw, because it is easy to distort if I get close, so it is not quite a chance is.

Around where I walked

“Inokashira Park” City recommendation degree ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ = 5

Although it is a park, not a town, it is just off the train station and part of the city.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black lens barrel
I did not get off Kugagiyama last time, I continued riding on Inokashira Line as it was.
I wonder if it will be good if the walk continues without worrying about the details.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black lens barrel
Really thought about going to Kichijoji, but stopped at Inokashira Park Station because it was at each station.
“I was in such a place”, I was invited by the calm atmosphere of the station and got off. It is the first Inokashira Park of my life.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel
This place is truly awesome, is not it?
Although I was out as a good story by my friends, what kind of person is from a colleague in Chiba seems to be feeling far away in the area where one step in Tokyo was entered without any habit of land and it seems quite difficult for my legs to turn It was a place.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black lens barrel
Ueno is from Chiba’s Joban Line area, so Ueno is the entrance and it is finally Shinjuku and Shibuya after passing through the office area, so if it is not good it will not go to the area beyond that.
Even if I go, it is a pinpoint, so it seems that the big station in Tokyo and the land intuition do not connect much.

I feel that such feeling continues even after I lived in Tokyo.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black barrel
Not only the pond, but also the historical objects and the zoo, so I can not turn all around, so I think I’ll come back there again.

Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black lens barrel
Many things that are related to monuments, such as Yukari, it is certainly a nice place to want to reconcile here.
More than anything, I’d like to do portraits here. It seems easy to use the distant view, and the height and overlapping condition of the trees are just right for the sun leaves and light diffuses, so many good points seem to be.

Shooting camera information

Canon 5 D mark III

Camera is 5 Dmark III, image quality is raw uncompressed shooting only and does not leave jpg.
Also, checking with the camera’s monitor, because the screen is small, the photo becomes tiring and it is not often attested, so basically check the exposure and make sure the frame you are looking at in the viewfinder I am trying to make it.

About Mount

[us_mountSelect something="M42_EF"]

Raw development

Since development is Adobe BridgeCC 2017 and we want to leave the characteristics of the lens in the photograph, the adjustment is limited to the extent that the brightness is equalized by the exposure dose.

Camera settings

Shutter speed is about F0.0 to F8.0, shutter speed is 1/400 when focused on the basis of 1/1000, ISO is an old lens, so camera exposure measurement is quite ambiguous according to aperture Try to match it.
The white balance is almost “auto” outside.


I still have a zebra pattern and I use it occasionally.
There are 2 articles about town photographs taken with that zebra pattern.
rumored street name good ride and sharp line Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm Zebra
I have grasped the thick deep color and the texture of the old!
