Tested this with a ISCO-Göttingen TELE-Westanar 180mm f/4 which is nice and sharp lens.

Build quality


All metal and great build quality.


Conclusion

Center sharpness is not bad at all but when it comes to the corners you lose quite a lot especially wide open.
This have a little helpful aperture ring that shows you the light loss you get by using this.
Can be helpful if you use a external light meter.

Thumbs up:
Good center sharpness

Thumbs down:
Corner sharpness
