It's wonderful, love the "painterly" renderings and your PP.

Thank you Dr Klaus and Arend for you worthy contributions. It's nice to know that I am not the only one who likes this lens for what it can do :)

Zenit rules.
I shot the 180/2.8 ED with and without extension ring, the Heligon with and without extension ring and the Zenit on my small balcony with tulips as the main subject.
Zenit won the battle of titans :)
