Taken during a jousting event in Linlithgow Palace, Scotland.

Big problem with the CCTV camera on the second picture, I suppose it could be removed during post processing. Not that I intend to do it.

Both taken with a Panasonic DMC G3, no tripod but a "steady hand" and this lens at max aperture and nearly 210mm.

In my humble experience the results are not as sharp as modern lenses but still great. A bit soft. As many other old lenses, this one focuses beyond infinity, so a little adjustment is always necessary.

More examples

Here are more examples of this lens.

BTW, the aperture ring of my lens is stuck at 4.0.
