Looks like money well spent - renting both the hotel room and the lens. Very nice shots, for sure.

Great lens, and some nice shots. On my need-to-buy radar!

May I ask if you meant to use it wide open at 1/4000 in the fourth shot?

I'd have probably dropped it down to f4 or 5.6 to maximise IQ.

Sweet lens indeed.
Perhaps these were all test shots wide open - still come out just fine at this magnification corner to corner...

I actually would not shot them wide open again if I had it to do again. In the first shot I was going for good bokah of the sign. I probably wold have been good at f2.8 but I was still pleased with the results.
