    I have one, and it's a very cheap lens with not so good results. Yashinon and Mamiya also made 2.8/50 lenses which are pretty compact. I have a Petri 2.8/45 which is very small indeed. Hardly anything is smaller than the manual diaphragm CZJ tessars, but using a manual diaphragm lens is such a huge PITA that I'd consider one of the slightly larger pre-set or semi-automatic lenses.

    An uncoated Biotar will be a very efficient flare machine.
