Prinz Galaxy 35 mm f/3.5

A Prinz Galaxy 35 mm f/3.5 with preset aperture is shown above. This lens model is virtually a clone of the Optomax, and differs in minor details only. It uses the same optics of the Optomax, Kyoei, Soligor, Hanimex etc. All these lenses have the same 23 mm diameter of the front lens element and 46 mm filter mount. Note that this lens is a different model from the Photax etc. equipped with a larger front element. The lens coatings are bluish-violet in color.

The UV performance of this Prinz Galaxy lens is good, and indistinguishable from that of similar Soligor etc. lenses described here.
