f2, ISO640, and an attempt at organic processing - it took a little PP work but I think it has captured the mood and era of this lens. I'm waiting on my focal reducer but I can see I'm going to enjoy this one. And my goodness, depth of field is shallow. I can't wait to turn it into an 85mm f1.0 equivalent!

It is certainly soft wide open but can be made acceptable with some heavy duty sharpening; and the grain it produces to my eyes doesn't look out of place in the character of this lens. It's certainly not a run and gun option for me, but slow, considered, posed portraits will be just fine.
