At f5.6 here and ISO 64. In camera monochrome.

As an art-house lens, actually interesting! It's obvious flaws make for an interesting rendering, which I like, personally.
The early phase dual coatings in it are a far cry from even the later A/I variants. A bit of glow near center, with more than obvious fall-off, apparent vignette, and gin fizz bokeh actually make for an interesting combination.
Wide open at f2 and ISO 64, 1/80 sec. in the last long sunrays of final sunset.

Crop of center of the above image. That is surprising for wide open out of a lens this old.

Same subject type just a few minutes later. The rapidly changing lighting conditions give little time to work, that close to darkness.
Wide open again.

Skin tones are close to actual in direct lighting, as shown here.
At f5.6 and ISO 64.

Crop of image center again. 1/250 sec to isolate motion here.

Like 1 Like 1 Character, color, look, and rendering are all most definitely classic "Nikon". I want this lens!

At f5.6 here and ISO 400 under complete over-cast skies at about noon.

This lens is a minimum focus distance wonder, and I had to include this shot.
Image is unmanipulated except for resize to fit here.

It continues to impress at MFD and wide open.
Not too sure about what is happening in the back-ground. There was a fairly gusting breeze, and the green thin stemmed plants in the OOF area were reacting to the wind.
Still, an interesting effect.

Center crop. This flower head is quite large~ about the size of my "medium" closed fist.

I wonder if I am missing something when it comes to digital sensors and motion. The reactions are not quite the same as film I've noticed...
