    This is the ED version of Nikon fast 180mm lens.

    DSC03617_zpsf850c4e1.
    Aperture 5.6 and monopod. ISO 800 as there was not so much light. No sharpening etc.
    DSC03617_detail_zpsf47e37b6.
    100% crop of above

    Some CA that is probably correctable in post processing but pretty sharp lens. Going price is something like 400 USD in Ebay. Heavy but easy to use. It rains so no more photos today.

    What's the shutter speed?

    This is one of the best Nikon lenses, I've seen excellent result from other people.

    1/400.

    Yes. It took a long time to decide between Contax 180mm Sonnar and this one. I think that I made correct decision.
