mods can we have this removed? It's only a pointer to the correct thread, and in the wrong forum

This lens is disgustingly sharp wide open. I have sold every other lens I own, but this one. It's that good.

So what makes this lens so especially sharp? Special glass? Modern design combined with slow speed? Magic?

It's a true Planar design (6 elements in four groups.) If you wanna shoot it I can let you borrow it. I have no idea what makes it so sharp though.

I think I'll take you up on that offer. Let's try to meet up soon. Your free to try any one of my lenses if your interested, mostly older single coated types.
