F 2.8.

F 8.

F 22.

Closest focus is 60cm from outermost edge of the lens, F 8. Focus on the program wheel of the camera.

Wide open picture sharpness is bad towards the edges and there colour cast. Stopped down it gets a bit better, but even at F22 softness and colour cast don't really disappear. I don't remember where this lens came from, maybe it was in a free lot someone gave me. Anyway, this lens doesn't fit my camera. Exakta lenses are normally o.k., maybe this one just doesn't mix well with a digital sensor. The lens has no good close focussing capablities.
