Lens was dropped into salt water in my opinion , due blades and their cage was rotten. Glasses did survive very well no visible impacts.

Wide open shoots.

Is this the earlier, larger (67mm filter thread) version, or the newer one?

I managed to get the larger one at an affordable price (for me), and, after cleaning, I was always a bit disappointed by its sharpness wide open.
I mean, it's a lens I really like, it can be extremely sharp from one stop down, and I love its rendering.

Some of your wide open shots seem slightly better than mine - but maybe it's just because I do much more pixel peeping on my pics than I do on other people's.

I have one of these with a 49mm filter thread, it has a slight yellowing which I hope to fix via the south facing window this year. Wink

Nice shots Attila. Smile

The samples look good.

Does the aperture function with the rotten blades, or have you had it fixed?
