Montgomery Ward 200mm f3.5 M42

Got this along with a camera kit I bought, just for the camera strap.

This lens is super clean, I’m guessing it was hardly used, and kept in a clean location. It’s not super sharp, nor super contrasty. The colors look good, and the bokeh is interesting. The biggest disadvantage is that the minimum focusing distance is about 11 feet. So you would need a macro extension to get close to anything small.

This was as close as I could get to this spider web:


Here are 2 shots with a 25mm extension:
