Meyer Optik Görlitz Orestegor 200mm 4.0
Mount: M42 Manual
Build quality: good
Filter thread: 58mm
Infrared Mark: yes

One of the famous East German (DDR) Orestegor lenses. There might be sharper 200mm teles out there or brighter. But in its time, this was one helluva lens. The rear metal "cone" can be unscrewed and other adapters than M42 can then be mounted. This lens is sharp from 4.0 up to 16.0! I could not detect any softness caused by diffraction, just increased depth of field when increasing f-stop. Amazing. I am not an avid tele-shooter, but with this lens, I really should.
