    First image is the full capture, second is about 40% of the original size. Around F5.6 or F8. It's taking me a while to learn to use this lens, but it is very versatile, focusing down to 1.2m as a macro, and fast enough for handheld at a night sports event:

    Here's a centre crop of the last shot:

    Wide open it has a lot of chroma "glow", unless the light is directly on the subject. Here's a link to another review of the lens:

    Long time since the previous post in this thread.
    Time for an update.
    A new lens for me, quite heavy with about 350 degree focus throw, good for fine tuning focus.
    Background rapidly goes very soft with lens wide open.

    I have posted this elsewhere but I think it deserves to be in the Showcase thread

    This was one of my favorite lens mated to the Minolta SRT-102. Among its fine attributes is the close focusing distance which, combined with its telephoto power, makes it usable as a macro. M43 enhances that capability, to the extent that my dedicated macro gets little use these days.

    It is, although I'd either forgotten or never gave it thought before. I figured it had something to do with multi-coating, verified now that I've looked it up.
