Nice PP. I like the M200 rendering thought it's not very sharp.

Yup, agreed. In some situations I have learned to not even pull it out of the camera bag. That said, on a contrasty (not a word ) sunny day, it can be fun as I have just discovered. I was disappointed by it a few times in the past but those days were flat light.

200 doesn't usually even get in my bag. I've only really used it in SIC last April. It's a shame in a way, as it is quite good wide open and has nice bokeh.

This is wide open with M200. I've posted this before, but it's one of the best shots I took last year, so can't resist reposting it

M 75- 150 is handy for semi-macro and macro with diopters - this time with S 56 - SMC diopter for 645 system.

M 50/1.7 @ one click down from wide open (~2.2?), K-S2

1/50s, ISO 800

Light and dark

1/80s, ISO 800

Half egg, half bokeh

I think wide open it was a little soft and manually focussing is even harder with such a thin dof, but one click down sharpness and bokeh balance nicely here (I think). I will most likely not want to rely on manually focussing and fiddling with green button metering when I'm in a hurry, but when I take my time I guess I'll get more than acceptable results with this one. Also nice to know that I can keep on using my K-S2 if the aperture control should ever fail.
