CZJ/PENTACON Prakticars

My main interest is in these now forgotton PRAKTICAR lenses, for collecting, for taking photos by these lenses,
and for preserving the precious Carl Zeiss Jena PB-lenses in good condition. (PB = Praktica Bayonet mount)

There are three nice points in those lenses, the first is that they have almost same colour rendition across
except Macro-Prakticar 55mm which has less contrast than the others, the second is that the most of lenses
have very short minimum focusing distance, and the third is that they have uniformly very small distortion
among my personal lens collection. Those last two features are the reasons I love them the most.
