Looks very good to me. Wink
Perfect compensation for your odd Tele-Tessar. Thanks for the samples.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I downloaded the images from the compact flash card.
I mean, the 100% crops wide open of this lens hand-held, are better than my full size 1:1 stopped down tripod images of my Makro-Planar 100.

I believe this is the most amazingly resolving and sharp lens I have ever got or used.
It breaks down to pieces my Leica Apo-Telyt-R 180.

That is truly amazing Orio and thanks for sharing. At that zoom range the results are stunning and the 300 is as good as any prime I have seen (if not better).
They could make a fortune selling the sunflower seeds to american baseball players so they can sit and spit them out in the dugout - at least it's one step more pleasant than "chewing tobacco"! Ugggh

I read that this lens beat fixed Canon L
I can believe it when I check the Zeiss MTF's
for 300mm, in body stabilization is important; a Pentax with Leitax kit could give it

Congrats for this lens.
Is the high resolution of the lens causing this noise and moiré effect?
Never seen anything sharper than this (chapeau) Shocked
