As there are almost no pics on internet with this lens I decided to document the f2 aperture of this lens and share the results.

-On the first picture of each set I show the straight out of camera picture without cropping.
-The second one is the result after clicking the Lightroom "Auto" button on the exposure settings.
-The third one is a 100% crop straight out of camera.
-The fourth is the same crop but clicking the Lightroom "Auto" button on the exposure settings.
-The fifth one is after clicking the "remove chromatic aberration" checkbox and setting the "Defringe" slider to 6 on the purples and 10 on the greens.
-The sixth one is after applying sharpening mask. On the first set I forgot to do this and the sharpening mask is at the default Lightroom value of "25".





As you can see, on the first pic there is heavy fog, so the contrast is a bit lower than it should be.

All the processing done to reach the last pic takes 15 seconds and can be done selecting multiple pictures at once.

Great results, I've yet to hear about a bad Rokkor. But even the best of lenses need some processing to get the best out them, and it doesn't need much if the lens is is good.
The fog makes the bokeh redundant though. Wink
