    Hi all--
    I just found this lens in a local thrift store today. I was kinda shocked to see it. Anyway, not a lot of info out there on this one...anyone here familiar with it? Just looking for any info on it.
    Thanks!
    Matt

    This is a very good lens for macro work. I have it in SL66-mount and it is an outstanding performer. Seems to be the same lens, just in another barrel. Distortion is nearly non-existant and resolution is very high if used for close ups. Great performance already wide open.

    I wish it had been the Hasselblad chrome version...then I could use it right away!

    Should be ideal for small enlargements of 4x5 negatives, like 1:1 to 2x
