Today-excellent condition MC Rokkor 85/1.7 with geniune caps- blue fringing in contrast lighting visible even up to f8 (NEX5N),but unbeaten for portraits.I have 2 weeks to give it back if not satisfied-I don't think I will.

Canon FD SSC 400/4.5 has just arrived-mint,leather cased with genuine caps,for just 165 Euro shipped.
It has some LoCa and LCA with NEX 5N/7 in contrast lighting,but man,what a nice piece of solid,tidy alt glass!

The rest of the +/- 2kg shipment mentioned above is also acceptable - I think I'll keep Canon FDn 200/4 (small and compact,1,5m mfd compared to the 2,5m of my 200/4 SSC) and 24/2.8 FDn - smaller than my 24/2.8 SSC and optically on par.

Mine is way sharp, and the fringing from high contrast subjects(which is common in fast lenses) is easy to fix.
Congrats.

LightShow and helimat - the lens is very sharp in the way of Rokkor MC PG 50/1.4.And has creeeeeamy,smoooooth bokeh.It has just found a new home I think.

MIRANDA1 - Uuups!I had 15ZE in my hands about three weeks ago.State of the art in the WA World.Very sturdy and excellend IQ.I do not feel itch to buy it now but it is respectable lens.

parsons -21/3.5 Zuiko is very,very good.I use it anytime my Zeiss 21/2.8 seems too big or too heavy.It delivers again and again.Beautiful piece of engineernig in a solid tiny body.

I agree, the 21/3.5 is a great lens, sharp and has great color, all in a super compact body, what more could you want?

It will end up in my bag for most trips, just be on the lookout for a multicoated version.(not G.Zuiko)

Zuiko and Zuiko MC vs. G.Zuiko are prob. the most reliable method to id an MC lens.

I received a very minty Contax 28-85/3.3-4 a few days ago. It's a big solid unit! Please excuse the sub-par images, still in the 'testing' phase.

So far it seems sharp and Zeissy to me, although the sharpness drops off a little at 85mm wide open. Stopped down it cleans right up of course.

This Canon 250mm F4 mirror lens is my latest purchase, and my latest camera mod.
Looks massive on the Nex. It can even be stopped down.
But the focal length is too long for my normal use, I am not sure if I will keep it.
