    Look a little un-sharp and/or out-of-focus???

    some are a bit blurred, but #4 is really lovely I think!

    Blurred, exposure times were 1/40-1/60 or so and aperture wide open (f:3.5). Focal length 70 mm so some motion blur and narrow depth of field (especially "the robot"). Not possible to use flash (museum and flash is very tricky with glass) or tripod.

    If I remember correctly, Kiron made version 1 f/3.5 67mm filter thread, Tokina made version 2 f/3.5 62mm filter thread, and Komine made version 3 f/2.8-4 62mm filter thread.

    In a museum where flash and tripod is impossible, I would use shorter and faster lens, e.g. 50mm f/2.8 macro, or 50mm f/1.4 normal lens if it can focus reasonably close.

    Yes. It seems Tokina is the second version.

    No, these glass things are big and depth of field is too narrow already. 50 mm OSS would have been nice. In fact 50 mm non OSS would have been better as this lens is huge and lighter lens causes less hand shake.

    With those circumstances, they all look good! Museums can be very tricky tyo shoot in, the few times I have tried if I had a manual lens the pictures were more blurred than yours are. Small lenses and / or an OSS lens would make thins a bit easier, as has been said.

    I've had the Kiron version for quite a while (in OM mount). Haven't used it in a really long while... until today.

    DSC00990.

    This at 210mm f5.6 (ish) I think. Could have been f8 :hmmm:
