Yes. Having the luxury of being a hobbyist, I can take time to things the awkward way, and let it be about the process.

And get glass that would be *way* too expensive for the quality, because its old and manual.

It works ok, but you have to work at it.

Eagle taking off at Warwick castle. CZJ 135mm f/3.5 at around f/8 in rather flat light. Processed a fair amount using LR5 for micro contrast and dynamic range.

I like this lens, although the focus ring is a bit stiff, and it's soft at f/3.5. Focus by wire is nothing like it.
