An enjoyable review and instructions again -- and funny too with the dry humour I appreciate :)

My 5cm f/2 is the usual 'S' mount and it is really a very good performer. I can add it is great for IR as well. Using it on my Z system requires having a focusing adapter however.

I use mine on a focusing adapter so near limit is set by adapter not lens itself :)

I have one of the elder ones, in case it uncouples from Viewfinder, I feel a resistance in the focussing thread - means I have to switch to live view on my RF camera
thanks for this informative article
