I had to return it. Great rendering though

It was missing more paint than it had. Dented, out of round hood with the locking mechanism epoxy'd back on. Dented out of round front of the lens too. Absolutely sharp as h#ll though....

Not sure if its your edit or the Meta data is off but that seems super grainy for iso250

Yeah, I added the grain during post-processing because the lighting looked a bit sterile to me, and adding some grain helped. It should look like it's done on purpose and not actual image sensor noise, since it's all over the photo and not only in the shadows, and it's a different grain pattern then typical sensor noise.

Does it look bad? Or is it simply a bit confusing because you can see the ISO setting?

I dont mind the grain just confusing with the ISO set so low, almost looks like sitting in the 10k plus range

If I find myself focusing on the grain and not the subject...then yes, I think it is not helping the image. Just my opinion, this is the kind of scene that I think wants minimal noise, not added noise. If the lighting was flat or not interesting enough, change the lighting.

While shooting the lighting didn't bother me. It was while doing post-processing that I felt the lighting was a bit hot in some areas, and when I was trying a B/W conversion to pull down the highlights (usually gives better result than in color), one of the presets applied a layer of noise (I guess it's trying to simulate film grain), and I liked the look, so I took the B/W conversion and turned it into a luminosity layer in Photoshop and placed it over the original color version to create the composite result.

I dislike noise in general and almost never utilize it in my photos, so this is one of those very rare experiments. Whether it's a good choice or not is probably subjective, and I'm still kind of on the fence about it. I'm just going to chalk it up to a lesson learned.

Sure. I was going to post the version without the B/W conversion composite for comparison anyway.

As you can see, it's basically a bit hotter in the highlights and without the layer of simulated film grain noise. I could have done a version with the highlights toned down a bit and no film grain noise, but the noise gave it an interesting anachronistic look (or maybe just interesting to me) so I went with it.
