    Bought at a bargain due to the lens being badly clouded by fungus. Lens is 100% clear after disassembly and cleaning of front elements. Not bad for beginners, but I'll be able to tell more after I've taken some shots with close foreground elements.

    Was it difficult to take apart?

    Thanks Jim. Jai, it was actually easy to get apart. The front lens element assembly just screws out, and the two front lens elements then screw apart. There is zero chance of misaligning the elements upon reassembly.

    Here are a few more from this morning. I arrived at work at precisely the right time . . . the sky was excellent, and I was able to grab some pleasing shots with this great little lens. The only knock on it I can see is that it does vignette if one is not careful. I'm not a pixel peeper, and I definitely find the IQ of this little lens to be acceptable.

    A few late evening captures. The lens certainly has a film-ish quality. I guess that can be expected from a lens made from 1963 - 1967. I rather like the effect.
