    Since it’s still in the classifieds, I did some more testing with a Canon FDn 50-135 / 3.5 I had bought but then never used due to overlap from other lenses I got shortly afterwards. Cloudy overcast day today but thought the IQ was excellent. Cropped up in steps to see the detail it captured come all the way up.

    Another setting with better light showing good color rendition, along with DOF @ F22.

    These really show the quality stopped down, I'm impressed. I've been using it with a cheap focal reducer on M4/3, and even wide open it's reasonably sharp. A bit of CA for sure, but easily removed in Lightroom.
