Hi, My Grandma is in the cleaning spree, and she handed me a pile of junk askin to ditch it. In that pile I found a Pentacon lens, 2.8/135 and a leather cylinder case for it. It must have been brought by my Grandpa from his trips during the communism years, while the camera broke, he saved the lens, and they moved with it a decade ago.
The lens is Made in G.D.R., and from what I can tell, it fits on Zenit E camera that my parents kept, so it seems like M42 (?).
What to do with it? I'm asking seriously. I don't want to throw it out, and I don't really have any use for it. Is it worth anything?
The cylinder says "Meyer Optic". The lens has a number 5634218.
Any other important features I should look up? I'd appreciate your support!

I have its predecessor as well as the "electric" version. The Meyer 135s are reasonably sharp and can be easily adapted to any recent short-mount camera (olympus, Panasonic, sony, canon). So, do try to USE it.
