Fiddling with the Tokina ATX 90mm/f2.5 Macro on the Sony A7c

A couple of months ago I bought the Tokina ATX 90mm/f2.5 Macro lens to try a bit of close-up & macro photography. The lens is completely manual. I bought it on Ebay, although the condition of it is fairly decent, it had been disassembled earlier, as far as I can tell.

The lens is great optically which is not news at all. It's very sharp even wide open, with great smooth bokeh (so is the nickname of the lens: Bokina, although with some vignetting in corners at f2.5, and ourple fringing in bright contra light. Manual focusing is a bit of a challenge for me but I'm doing my best. So long story short, here are some photos taken with the lens and Sony A7c.
