Photos taken after we had overrun their position and made them POW.
 
The images are very good- more contrast than what I expected from this lens given its reputation.

That's the problem with reputations: usually built around old lenses with haze and scratches. Find a good, clean example- or have it repaired properly, then judge them.

The A36 Yellow Filter helped.

This sample was completely overhauled in the UK a few years back. After I acquired it cheaply. It had some issues with poor re-assembly and a scuffed front element.
