    I have been offered the opportunity to purchase this lens. I can find almost nothing about it on the web, other than the specs. I would very much appreciate any feedback from people who have used this lens, as well as any sample images. I am also interested in any pictures made using this lens wide open (or close to). Let me thank you in advance!

    Do with what? The lens? Take pictures. Landscapes and portraits.

    It's a flat out wonderful lens. It'll do whatever you want it to do.

    It's big. It's got plenty of coverage for 8x10", plenty for 11x14", and almost enough for 12x16".
    No, I've never used one. But it was one of my candidates for my 30x40cm camera, until I stumbled across a 210mm f:6.8 Angulon - uncoated.
