Cos previously the CZ i owned the thread filter size was 49mm... but this is 55mm?
Ok back to your question... ermm i buy MF lenses cos of the colors it gave (i find old MF lenses produces more vintage colors as compared to the vibrant colors produced by modern lenses) ... i like those old vintage colors with slight vignetting (i am not particular about sharpness) so i dun even need to PP my photos and can shoot straight from cam to give this vintage feel to my photos... Actually both lens fits the bill in this case but i am more biased towards CZ actually since i used it before and was satisfied :x
Btw, i did a night test shot with this lens (CZ only).
Focus to infinity, ISO 100, f16, 30 secs shutter speed. I like the result it produces
Did some curving to these photos to punch out the color further.
