XR Rikenon 55mm 2.2 PK/Manual

Hello everyone

Not sure what is up with this lens. I got a Ricoh XR in very clean condition to run some film through and it also came with the standard 55mm 2.2 for this camera which is also very clean.

I checked for all the usual maladies, haze/fungus/scratches with a flash light, no issues.

Results are strange though, and I have come to expect quality outcomes from Ricoh, even their older stuff.

I mounted on a Pentax K-5.

There is actual glow on the image, this was shot at about F8 iso 200. This lens almost approaches a toy lens threshold or Lomography Special Effect lens and not the normal kit supplied with the camera?

Any ideas?
