    Nikon mount, found a while back, first real attempt to test. Both shots wide open, first at 200mm, second at about 100mm.

    Soft wide open, will try stopping down in better light. Very good build quality (Japan), tripod collar, built-in shade. $5.99 thrift find.

    The beast itself. Love the misspelling on the lenscap. :)

    About as sharp as it gets at 200mm, stopped down to f/8.
