    Got that one cheaply for 55 euros.

    Shot thru window and a long exposure time, f:8
    Some dusty jade, rubies, blue spinels and tourmalines, f:8
    Leaves after winter, f:8
    Last one cropped, noise reduced, contrast added

    Pretty nice lens and not heavy (610 g). Very solid and mechanically very good. Slow but quite sharp and close focusing (1.4 mm). Maximum magnification 1:2.

    Three real life images

    Pair of ducks
    Tree rat after winter
    Good reason why you need sturdy bird houses

    Too much CA, I need to learn if I can get rid of it via software. I seldom need this kind of focal length so I am reluctant to use much more money for a telephoto and this one is sharp.

    Last one with tone curve modified (clipped empty histogram away -> Better contrast)
