One of my favourite lens, so old and damn good lens.

A lens in this condition would be a good companion for the next meeting of the local canonists. Everyone is unpacking their L and whatsoever fullautomaticpointandperfectshopsuperzoom 5-1000mm with an image stabilizer that works even during a stage 12 earthquake. When it comes to the results, they are showing sharp but cold pictures without any soul and ugly bokeh. And then you show the pictures you shoot with an old gem like this one. But I fear even then they didn't see, because there is no red ring around this lens.


I like your pictures very much! Wonderful colours and DOF.

Michael

Thanks Michael! If you see in full size resolution, sharpness is also excellent good as than any close-up lens do. Not bad at all from a 180mm lens.
