These are just some example shots taken with this lens. I bought this one for portraits, and for isolating details when travelling. So far it is working great. Plenty of sharpness, lovely oof rendition, and of course built to last; after all, this lens is older than I am! All metal, smooth aperture and focus rings, what more do we need? It would probably make a nice "quasi-macro" with the Voigtlander Close-focus adapter.
