I assume that last one is the "Nikkor"?

The first one looks like DOF is much larger. Sharp at infinity but also a bit sharp at close distance?
The Nikkor looks more like a "toy-lens" not like a Nikkor?    .....not sharp anywhere?

Yes, the later one was from Nikkor. Stopped down, Nikkor is doing OK. Close up Nikkor wins by edges. I hope it's sample variation, but sample variation is also a quality indication of a brand.

Comparing with Nikon 2.8 AIS at 2.8 and near infinity. Nikon is the worst one.

Portrait at 2.8 and 5.6. 100% crop look both very sharp.

Thanks Akira,  it was a lucky consequence of a freeze-up of my cabin (dry cabin, no pipes to get compromised). I think what happened is the following: The very clean water got supercooled at the inside air temperature of -7°C. When I came back I must then have turned the bottle upside down, at which point the water immediately froze while the air was rising towards the bottom which now was at the top. The interaction between the walls of the bottle likely caused the friction that seeded the freezing, thus the bubbles could rise in the center.

Thank you, Øivind, for the details.  So, it's a beautiful cooperation between you and the natural phenomenon!

Thanks Fons!

I have taken some close-up test only, nothing 'photographic'. At close distances, the lens is pretty good. Not quite as sharp at infinity, but the CA is very well controlled. The first picture bellow was taken at 2.8 in low light condition using Sony Nex 6. The second picture was taken at 5.6 (Note that both files have aggressive compression to fits NG requirements).
