Alas, I do not own a sample of this lens.

I had the opportunity to use it once, some years ago.
The view is spectacular, but the image quality is not stellar.
There is some serious fringing along the edge of the image circle.

Note: this is one lens NOT for use on a DX digital camera (you will not get the full circular frame on DX).
Note 2: production of this lens was very limited, according to Rolands list only some 600 were ever made.

Regards, Gilbert
