These look so authentic that I'm glad you have the signature on them!

Otherwise someone would think they were 70+ years old.

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.

The story of this lens is well-documented here, I re-read the thread when you put up the new picture.
They did a great job.
