This is a damn good lens, sharp as hell, very good contrast and surprisingly very little CA. Looking forward to some better weather to test it further.

I bought this lens a few months ago and finally hooked it up the other day. Is your copy actually 60mm? Mine says 60mm f2.8 on the lettering ring of the lens, but the lens itself is actually 105mm. The box it came in said "105mm f2.4" even though the projection lens itself says 60mm f2.8, and it has a little sticker on the side of the lens that says "104.5" Really weird. As for the lens, it's almost identical to my Nikkor AI 105mm f2.5 which is really good.

Yeah, mine is 60mm, I have the 45mm version too.

There are a whole range of AV-Cineluxes of different lengths, I expect they are all excellent.

There's a certain creamy smoothness to how they render out of focus areas and the smoothness of the transition from in to out of focus that makes them so appealing to my eyes.

Cannot agree more, exactly what attracts me too! And great colors and contrast, too!

Yes, the contrast is another stand out feature, both macro and micro, my shots were taken in really bad December light and still have plenty of contrast and some 'pop', which only a very good lens can do in such bad light. Clearly some very good coatings on these lenses. The colours are great too - look at how vivid the red of the postal box is, I haven't edited it, and it was shot in some of the worst, flat, dull light you can have during daylight hours.
