OK, back from the long weekend and other stuff, here are some scans from 5x7 prints:
First you can notice the fact that it's possible to get decent contrast out of the cheapie lens. This must have been printed on G3 or G4 RC paper. But note especially how unflat the field is: can you see the blurred sides?
The focus has two positions: Near and Far. This was taken with the Near position. You can still notice the soft sides, but the center is agreeably sharp, and the tonality respectable. This is 6x9 after all, and you can see that the drapé on the coat is fine!
