Soligor 135mm F/2.8 Tele-Auto Vintage Lens is a real gem with excellent tonal contrast, great bokeh, and superb sharpness.
You can anticipate very good sharpness, striking tonal contrast, and very pleasing bokeh.
For a 135mm lens, the f/2.8 aperture offers a razor thin depth of field and with 8 rounded aperture blades bokeh is pleasing enough even for most bokeh snobs.
The build quality is top notch and the manual adjustment rings are smooth as silk and highly precise. That long ring throw comes at the slight cost of slower manual focusing, which might be a turn off to some who are trying to use this for action photography.
Soligor 135mm F/2.8 Tele-Auto at a glance:
• The lens is made of metal, no plastic parts at all
• Excellent sharpness, colors and contrast
• Top notch all metal body construction
• Virtually no barrel distortion
• Relatively fast and bright f/2.8 maximum aperture allows for shallow depth of field and for good results in low-light photography
• Quite sharp at center wide open at f/2.8
• Excellent image compression for a superb bokeh effect
• Ideal for weddings, portraits, and other close up work
With 42mm mount this lens can be easily adapter to any modern mirrorless camera.
