Quite good for its age I must admit. Not on par with the modern hi-tec (ED/LD/FL etc) glass - as expected. Great for b&w.
The most difficult part is to find clear weather conditions and an appropriate subject at an appropriate distance...

This is my third one, bought in 2008. Quite late s/n and in pristine condition:



One can probably see the difference in the details between the older (s/n 52xxx) and newer style (s/n 71xxx) lens...

I think the steering wheel six inches up the lens is for focus. What mystifies me is how you reach the aperture dial. Amazing lenses.

Focusing is indeed by means of the wheel in question. Setting the aperture (after concluding focusing) is better done with help from an assistant......( Laughing ) Seriously now, these monsters are very heavy and particularly slow in terms of handling, which is quite reasonable considering (a) the era these lenses were developed in, and (b) their telescope-based origin (design-wise).
