Zeiss Distagon 35mm f/1.4 :

This Zeiss lens is an awesome lens !!! My copy of Distagon 35mm f/1.4 is near mint condition. This is a massive and solid lens. The particularity of this Zeiss, is his diaphragme with only 3 blades. It forms a triangle aperture with very original triangle bokeh.

The Angenieux Type R1 35mm f/2.5 :

This lens is a very beautiful lens like any others Angenieux retrofocus lenses. My copy is in very good conditions, serial number is : 437051, made in 1956. This is a compact lens but heavy and solid.

All photos were shot at f/2.5 on Nikon d810 without post accentuation. The sharpness is good at f2.5 with great slightly swirly bokeh.

The Nikkor AIS 35mm f/1.4 is my old favorite Nikkor lens. Just Awesome bubble bokeh ! Sharpness is just correct at f/1.4, good at f/2 then excellent … As ever with Nikkor lenses, colours are colder than others. This lens is researched and his price is high. My copy is in very conditions with originals caps.
