Jon, thats what this gear was made for after all. It is sad seeing so few people actually using them apparently.
I wish we would see more posts, any version of the 5cm f1.1 goes as I understand, so where are the Leica owners and did Nikon ever made a few unicorns in Contax mount as well as they did with the 8.5cm f1.5 ?
Oh and my first scare about focussing this lens on the different bodies was just that … a scare (most likely user error with the shaking hands of just having received this kit).
The lenses focusses spot on on both SPs and the S3 as well. I am using it on the black SP the most though with a 35mm on the black S3 at all times - my dream Nikon RF kit.
Now if I could only find an original lens hood for the 5cm f1.1

Thanks Erik, he was a bit surprised to see someone noticing him in his own little world moment on the rocking horse ;-)
Here is a street portrait of a stranger I found on one of the rolls - completely forgot about those frames already:
