Thought I'd see what the M85/2 is capable of with a CU 3 filter. All at f/5.6-8, no crops:

Let me know what you think!

They look awfully good to me, Rob. Very nice soft focus (on some) and soft colours. They look good.

Thanks guys.

I always though CU filters would turn shots to mush - quite impressed by the IQ of these.
