I spotted the recommendation * for this version of this lens and bought a copy. "Red MC" means that the multicoating is indicated by "MC" in red letters on the front of the lens barrel. My version has an M42 mount, so I can use it on any camera via an adapter.

At first I thought I had bought a dud. However, I had not fully compensated for the frequent air movement. This is the only shot from two sessions which dispelled my doubts. This is at closest focus, uncropped at f8. On m4/3 the FOV is ca 95mm wide at this setting.

Thanks, Douglas & Ron.

I have just noticed: an 'A' slider on the side of the barrel closes the aperture when detached from the camera or reversed.

It is an affordable and quality lens for a low-budget introduction to macro. It is also a very sharp short telephoto.

Thanks, Birdie.

I am processing the first images with my full frame Sony A7R via the lens. They are at f8, and at f16, the latter for similar DOF. They should be uploaded on Saturday.
