Yours looks pretty well in operational standard to me! Nice shot too, with my favourite lens.
...it's many people's favorite!

The M200 was a great lens for capturing hummingbirds at the feed last summer.

M 50mm f1.7. Hyperfocal, with diffraction, but still lots of detail and great DoF, despite the cloudy weather! Wish more modern lenses came with usable DoF scales!

Like this?



A little off-topic as this is a DA* lens, shot with a K-series lens, but I'm sure this is just what you mean by a "usable" DoF scale.

Another (xpost) with the 50mm f/1.7
Why such a shallow depth of focus? Not much detail to see because of this.

Never really noticed that at my B&M store ... there's a usable scale for you!

Haha! The sad part is, that is actually the better version, many lenses don't even have a distance scale anymore. We are lucky if we get an infinity mark!

Nice one! The M50/1.7 is such a great lens - here's another tractor shot taken with that lens:

Hey! Wait a minute! Is this the SAME tractor? It was at the Western Idaho State Fair this past summer.

Love those old Farmalls. Before I bought my Ford 8N I looked at a couple of Farmalls, one was an old diesel M. What a beast!

Time for a close up! A peacock butterfly, by a M50/1.7 and some PP/cropping.
Excellent!

Yeah, you're probably right... it was my first promenade with a DSLR, which I just got...
If I were to re-shoot it I would go at least f/2.8, but I like that shot very much nonetheless... I think it sorta tells a story (or tries to )
This OTOH, is much more in focus (M 28 3.5, xpost):
