bushnell-35mm f2.8 lens

      I only had time for a few shots before this lens was sold off.  Bushnell has specialized in sports optics for 70 years.  For a short time they distributed camera lenses that were made in Japan.   Like most 70's lenses, they were well made.   I got my hands on a Nikon Non Ai version of the 35mm f2.8.   Sharpness is good from f4 up.  Contrast is average and color rendition is warm.   I did notice some minor fringing up to f5.6.  At f5.6 sharpness is very good.   Close focus performance is good.   Focus dampening is excellent.   Distortion is negligible.    If you need a budget 35mm, this will do fine. 

     Bokeh fringing is noticeable, but color shifts are not severe and fringing is corrected as the lens is stopped down.
