Subtle colours and good contrast.

Enjoy using it.

I am really pleased to have a true macro lens now as it opens up an avenue to explore in our garden during this "lockdown phase"

Just don't try to use AF when you get down to some macro. It will drive you potty with its hunting. Apart from that you will enjoy it. It's a great lens.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
