    Not the 5.6, but I have the 500/8, 3M-5CA in a m42 mount. It's quite
    sharp in the center, good for moon shots and some bird shots, and
    balloon races. It's quite solid, and the focus is somewhat stiff.

    If you're shooting outside in the cold (subzero), let the lense adjust
    to the temp, especially for moon shots, since it'll focus quite a bit
    pass infinity.
