Every once in a while, I like to take out an old, manual focus lens just to justify having it. This little 100mm lens is a real gem.

My eyes can't cope with manual focus anymore, so my M-series lenses stay in the bag...lovely colour rendering Dewman.

I too have a problem focusing manual lenses, but the long focus throw on this particular lens makes it easier. It has a permanent spot in my Pelican "Take-along" case. It's kinda' like an old friend.
