Meyer Domiplan 50mm f2.8

     I received my copy from Ebay.  Yep, it was full of fungus and the aperture doesn't work because a piece is missing and the ring is damaged.    Typical Ebay purchase.   
     So, it is any good?   I cleaned the fungus out but I couldn't do anything with the diaphragm.   I shot these pics at f2.8 and they are good.   
     I can honestly say this lens is usable at f2.8, not like i have a choice, though.    It is sharp at f2.8.   Color rendition is a bit cool.  Contrast is good.   Fringing is well controlled.   There is some bokeh fringing.   Bokeh is very busy.
     I'd say it's a steal at $20.   If you see one that works, buy it.
