I used to really malign this lens, that is until this year. I had one, and 
also the F4 LTM. I had a photo mural go up, 8.5x21 feet. There is a section 
in there, 4x6 feet, taken with a late 21 S/A. I have to admit, it translated 
information in the shadows areas better than anything else on the wall. Yes, 
I ate crow.
