Anyhow, here are some pictures I managed to take before I discovered the fungus:

Yes, it does seem to be a fine lens and the shots you posted show it has good prospects for you. Shame the lens had a bit of fungus and you are having to return it but there are a few around to be had now and then so hopefully you will get a pristine copy soon.

The more I handle this lens, the more I like it, the internal engineering must be really clever regarding the continuous focus MOD system and I hope to make a lot of use of it. I think the Adaptall concept was a good one but not for the many camera manufacturers lens sales unfortunately.

Picked up the 2X tele/Macro convertor and hope to test drive this soon although the Macro DOF is very shallow.

Have a pic of REAL lens fungus for you !!

Good luck with your search,
