This lens is Andy's, I just tried some shots. Its focus is accurate, though I have not scientifically checked of course.
RF coupling (modified for this purpose) goes to 1m as MFD, which is a bit sort for many people. Should have gone to 0.7m.
I used 43mm UV/IR cut filter, here is some shots>

1) @f2 my new cam w Nikkor AF 85/1.8D bought long ago at 1m (MFD)

2) @f4, focused at pigeon (didn't remember which one Very Happy)

3) @f2, 1m (MFD) slightly blueish in morning shadow

4) @f2, 1m with fall colour in back ground

5) @f4, 1m same setting as above

6) @f4 inifinity! Law school office of U of T

7) @f4 Bronze girl close to 1m

Cool @f4 Autumn leaves, slight flare (might be affected by a filter)

There is no click stop for aperture setting, so the last three shots might have been @f4.5 or so.
Those are mostly done at ISO 160 (I used AWB, and auto ISO range + AE).

In the above 6), right side has funny sky, which is dome of unused planetarium, see below
9) @f4 infinity Planetarium

These look promising Very Happy
I think the RD1 and this planar 45 are going to be very good friends!
