    This lens is a true gem. Very sharp and contrasty. Has aperture settings at F1.8, F2.0, F2.5, and then the usual F2.8, etc.

    This lens has a 6-blade diaphragm. This information is missing from the specs in the database.

    The only thing that bothers me is the aperture seems to break down too easily. I have two of this lenses, one is already broken, and the other is showing signs that it’s going as well. A shame, since this lens is optically superior.

    I have some pictures here taken with one of them, if anyone is interested:
