Lumax Gold Star 200mm F4, In Black and White

'Vintage lens on mirrorless camera lens test, five frames with the Lumax Gold Star 200mm F4, with shots post-processed in monochrome'

It's a surprise find, a lens I have no idea about its presence or make. It came through the mail out of a job-lot sale. Big and bulky, the lens it seems, is made by Sankor, is a pre-set with an M42 mount, weighs in at a hefty 670 grams, and has many blades which I have yet to count.

The lens was less than perfect though, it has a few tufts of fungal sprawls within its inner elements but surprisingly, it is virtually dust-free. An interesting bonus to me was the built-in tripod mount on a rotating ring, which makes it convenient for me to mount on the E-P5 via an M42 mount adapter.

Sometimes an early riser, I do take the opportunity of looking out across to the park at the break of the sun, occasionally with a camera in hand. This one of those days, and for the shots, the Olympus E-P5 was fitted with a vintage Minolta MD W.Rokkor-X 28mm F2.8.

'Vintage lens on mirrorless camera lens test, five frames with the Minolta MC Celtic 135mm F2.8, starting out with square-cut frames'

My first take with the Minolta MC Celtic 135mm F2.8, the later version (1992-97) that comes with a built-in lens hood. A bit sad though, cause the lens came with a spot of minor fungal infection within its lens elements.

Regrets aside, I was more than surprised at the image quality as captured, tripod mounted, on the Pen E-P5. All shots were taken at F2.8. The lens is a bit of a heavyweight, all-glass and metal, weighs in at 575 grams, with mechanical quality that is top-notch, takes 55mm filters, and comes with a minimum focusing distance of 1.5 meters.
