Simply outstanding lens, and the lens is in VERY capable hands with the photographer. Your images,
woodrim, are off the charts! Shocked

I got lucky with this score, these usually sell for at least a hundred (£):



And although the seller had said fungus, it was really quite insignificant. But CFD mount means I am limited to my mirrorless, NX20 in this instance...

Good crisp clear light today for landscape. f11, jpg


Portrait of Bill OtC jpg- smooth bokeh. f2.5


I tried to capture this backlit daff- f8

Good exhibit of this wonderful lens' capability.

And Laurence, thank you for the kind words I didn't see earlier.

Wonderful daffodil shot!

@Woodrim: there are quite a few dead links ("direct linking denied"), could you repair those please, or remove them?

Thank you, Klaus. I have gone back and replaced the images, even if with different ones. And here is an update of more photos that I believe represent the lens well...

I had my copy out the other day to take portraits of a little visitor to my greenhouse. Minor boosts to brightness and contrast only. Mine is an FD mount that is (semi) permanently converted to E-mount. (Cheap chinese adapter won't come off!)





the obligatory 100% crop. I was focused on the weird little dots on his head.
