Thanks for aditional info and 100% crop

I was looking to buy ZM-5A (as it apeared in local second hand market) but now i decided to wait for ZM-5SA or Tamron 55BB so I can compare them to my Tamron 55B

Best regards Radovan

Hi Redovan,
ISO - 100, exposure 1/80. There is mistake in exposure bias, it was -2 Ev.

I know that my copy of ZM-5SA is quite soft. I posted one shot 100% croped.

Nice shot I'd like to see this picture in ful resolution. I'm a bit fascinated with catadioptric lenses and this one is on my list for some time now (hard to find clean and in perfect working order for reasonable price).

Also info on iso would be nice

Best regards Radovan
