I have owned a few (double copies of the entire set) over the years and some of the lenses have quite the character and personality when used on a Micro Four Thirds camera. I especially loved the 18mm f 2.8 and the 24mm f 2.8, very bubbly renditions of the bokeh and worked exceptionally well at close and minimum focus distances. At infinity or past 10 meters, they might not be so great with average sharpness and really bad sharpness in the corners.View attachment 396550

Lost out on this set yesterday, €50 plus postage. It was gone in 20 minutes and someone was quicker than me on the trigger.
What should I use it for?
Probably shoot a couple of rolls with 110 film and then use the lenses on one of the small M43 bodies. It would also make for a stand-in set for the one my paternal grandfather used to have, in the heritage photographic equipment shelfs.
They do look cute though and weigh almost nothing, except for the 70mm f 2.8, that's a hunk of glass. I never tried to shoot film with them (I did have the camera) because I didn't know if there was anyone left in the UK that can develop 110 films.... you can but it sure, but not sure about developing it.
I also had the leather case and I quite liked it, I used it a bit even with my Micro Four Thirds cameras, very retro looking and feeling.
