I took out the Zeiss 180mm f/2.8 that is currently for sale and took more test shots this morning

The lens can work well on portrait with a shallow DOF that make the subject standout in the picture. I lose the focus trapping and I will try testing the lens with aluminum foil to enable focus trap to cut down on focus errors. I did run into a bit off-focus in a number of test shots due to user error in focusing. Wide open shots are not the sharpest but it is better than the other 200mm that I have used as in Soligor 200mm f/2.8, Komine 200mm f/3.5 and Pentax M 200mm f/4.0.

With lack of interest, I am likely to withdraw this old lens and put my LBA purchase into more usage to make it worthwhile in my gear list.

Thanks,
Hin

For the record of interested member.
