nice pics!

you're another skilled photographer that i hoped would chime in, as i remember you used a few legacy lenses. don't you have a big old monster of a tamron or something, or am i confusing you with someone else?

and i'm curious - what makes the fujian 'tricky'?

It has some wierd bokeh that can get annoying, the edges are super soft and distorted, stopped down the aperture forms the shape of a rectangle, and the glass can get some vicious flare that comes and goes according to astrology charts or something equally random.

sounds way too complicated for me!  if you get frustrated, i can recommend the konica 40mm 1.8.....
