|Very nice images! The Xenars are mostly 4 element, 3 group designs, commonly referred to as Tessar types. F/3.5 is typically the maximum aperture this design allows with decent performance. As you stop down, sharpness will increase to about f/8, as will corner resolution, while vignetting and CA will drop off. You may notice what some photographers refer to as a "3D" look to images. A capable and fun lens to shoot that produces a classic, vintage look.
Canon 5D Mii, Canon 40D, Canon 350D IR, Sony A7 Mii, Sony Alpha-6000, a ton of lenses: AF & MF and too many cameras to count, all formats: 110 - 4x5.
