Found this nice manual lens. It can do 1:1 macro ration without additional macro tubes and focus ring does almost 2 full turns - haven't seen this thing before.
Some samples:

Congrats

You handle it well! Nice colorful photos!

I have this lens also in Nikon mount. It arrived with a small extension tube and the lens smudgy with oil. I actually found mine while looking for a 135mm f2.8 Close Focusing, and could not pass.

Although, my copy does not have that silver metal ring near the bayonet mount. Serial No. Prefix is 28.

Easy to extract elements and clean if needed. My copy has 6 blades, almost a ninja star look around f4-5.6 with half clicks.

This is Nikon-EOS ring. I'm using it with EOS-FX Lens Turbo II sometimes and with regular EOS-FX adapter.
