Warm recommendations for the APO-Telyt R 180 3.4
It has a reputation for being exceptionally sharp at infinity. Yes, it is sharp, but modern Canikon tele zooms are sharper.
It also has a reputation for being soft close up. This is not a problem, and should not keeping anyone away for using it close.
The point of the lens today is its APO correction, especially the lack of both longitudinal CA and defocus color fringing.
