    Contax 645 MC Arsat (Zodiak) 3.5/30 mm?

    Has anyone heard or used this lens? It appears to be autoaperture, but I'm assuming it's not autofocus. Made in Ukraine!

    Would you actually need to focus it?

    AF would be a waste of time on this lens I recon.

    You got me interested (what a beast) and I did a quick google search

    Definitely Auto Ap and looks like manual focus... you can also get it Nikon Ai and Canon FD mount

    Chuck Jones has (or had) this lens if I recall correctly. I'm sure he'd be willing to share his impressions with you.
