A very nice example, cosmetically the lens for sale shows only some very slight signs of use, considering its age. Optically front glass is nice and clear, whilst the rear element shows some faint scratches and a very slight haze, however nothing major and absolutely of no influence on the lens overall performance. Mechanically all functions work as intended, and indeed this little 61! Years old lens is a joy to use.
From a user review: The images glow. Some people will absolutely adore these results.
If you like artistic lenses and want to capture moods instead of details this lens is for you! An experimental photographer will have tons of fun with the Summaron 35mm 3.5.
There are so many imperfections that you can play with. The Summaron never creates boring images its always a bit psychedelic, over the top, saturated, colourful yet gloomy. As if a mask is put over the lens.
In many ways the Summaron 35 3.5 reminds me a lot of the Leica Summarit-M 50mm f/1.5. You obtain the same kind of playful, arty feel to the images.
