I've uploaded three sets of test photos with the Cooke mounted on a 5D. First, some autumn bokeh photos, e.g.

Some interior shots of Uspensky Cathedral at ISO 1600, e.g. the following shot at 1/60 s:

Finally, various shots, e.g. of a mallard walking around on the Market Place. This bird was very difficult to track with bellows focusing:

I'm impressed by the bokeh in the Autumn series, Veijo. Very smooth, very pictorial. Pleasing highlihgts. I rate it very close to your Radionar's bokeh.

Reading about you trying to focus on the walking ducks on the market square with a hi tech camera and a Pleistocene lens and bellows attached to it, I couldn't help smiling, imagining the stunned looks of the people around you Laughing Certainly not a setup to pass unnoticed while street photographing! Very Happy

Superb Veijo. How do you carry it around outside?

Thanks. I carry it just in an ordinary shoulder bag when not in use, with the lens hood separated, and like any other lens when in use. Excluding the focusing system, there is nothing special. In many cases bellows focusing is actually quite handy because you can focus, take the camera down from your eye in order to check the settings or just to bide your time, then raise the camera and shoot without needing to worry that the focus may have accidentally crept during the process or just due to your supporting the camera by the lens.
