MC W.Rokkor - SI 1:2.5 f=28mm


We know one version of the 28mm 2.5 MC-Rokkor:

The first version is based on the typical MC Rokkor style with the aperture ring in rear position. The aperture number can be seen in a viewfinder with aperture-read-in function. Little less than it's successor, the 28mm 2.5MC-Rokkor, it has a visibly warm color reproduction, that restricts it's color photography capabilities relevantly.

This model can be found moderately often on the second hand market.
