There is no archive for this lens. Let's start one.

Wow. This lens is insanely sharp. I just got mine in the mail yesterday and haven't really had time to seriously play with it, but from what I've seen so far this might be the sharpest lens in my bag.

Wow is an understatement. Talk about a blast from the past.

I bought this lens in 1993. I bought it to shoot product development. Take a look at the grooves at the front of the lens, that was where I attached a ring flash. You don't use a hood on this lens (look at how far back the glass is).
I also used this lens for copy work.

Of all the lens I've owned, I made more money using this lens than all of the others combined.

I've had these bad boys for almost 3 years now. Great set of headphones that I plan to keep forever. I just threw on some Sennheiser HD 414 earpads. They're big and yellow, but man are they comfy! Really helps cut down on ear fatigue.

I prefer Senn's but they require an amp to really make them sing. Nice taste in lenses and cans LM.

A couple of shots wide open. Too bad I traded it for a 300/f4
