    Hi everyone,

    I want to know your opinions about quality of bokeh for CZJ Biometar 80/2,8 MC vs. Zenzanon 150/3,5 MC, both fitted on 6x4,5 cameras?

    Thank you very much.

    For Biometar gallery :

    In my opinion , there is no better lens than Zeiss at MF in the world

    Thank you.

    I saw rating for some medium format lenses in this file (check this link http://free.art.pl/fotografie/johnst...kehRatings.pdf). Rating for Bronica Zenzanon S 150/3,5 is 9 from 10, which is outstanding, exceptional, capable of great beuty bokeh, but I dont know if lens formula for Zenzanon 150/3,5 MC (6x4,5 format lens) is same as Zenzanon S 150/3,5 (6x6 format lens). I think, that lens formulas are different.

    I dont like japanese lenses whoever reports whatever. In 25 years , I only saw few good japanese lens shots and they were taken with exceptionally beatiful women. As you see at your Zenzanon picture , lens is very weak performer , nothing special even good . Zenzanon , who gives that name to a product ? I use zeiss and leitz and I am happy.

    hehe i have a Seagull 203 6x6 folder that uses a HAIOU 111-2 lens
    and thats excellent, it was made by Carl Zeiss Jena ;-) So never try to
    judge a lens by its name ;-)

    Picture is not mine. I own CZJ Flektogon 50/4 MC and CZJ Biometar 80/2,8 MC with Mamiya 645. I dont use Biometar at f-number range between 2,8-5,6, because I need higher DOF for landscape. Bronica ETRS with Zenzanon 150/3,5 MC is my new toy and I want to try shooting some portraits with Zenzanon or Biometar.

    150/3.5 will have shallower depth of field and different angle of view...hard to compare.

    It's been a long time since I've heard such an over the top and biased assessment of a lens or lens line. I've shot both Zeiss and Bronica and I can tell you that while there are differences there is no way someone can tell from a single 800x600 scanned in picture on the internet that a lens is a "weak performer." I assume you were just being sarcastic and it didn't translate well over the internet.

    Yup. Pretty much. I read the question a couple of days ago and I didn't even understand why it was being asked.
