Lens Works Well With Sony a7r
26 June 2014
Excerpt: I have not yet studied the corners of images made with this lens and the Sony a7r. But the image does not appear to vignette and looked good in the camera. I am using the camera and this lens in particular as a backup to a medium format camera, but from all I have seen would not hesitate to purchase...
Summary: This lens if fantastic. It performs really well, but where it really shines is in how compact it is. I'm used to F/4 lenses because I also have a mamiya 7II, and honestly I'd rather have quality over speed more of the time anyway. This thing easily fits in a pocket, and it's 21mm...
Summary: A 21 mm on a full frame camera would be considered an ultra-wide lens, if you are using it on a micro four thirds body, this would be effectively a 42mm FOV. If you google a little bit, you will find that this is one of the cheapest 21mm M mount lenses out there.
Summary: I love this little guy. OK sure it doesn't deliver the same mind-blowing image as the , but it is a tiny fraction of the size and weight of that lens, not to mention costing less than 1/4 the price. Wow, this lens is WICKED sharp in the center of the frame. I mean, it will blow your mind, man!
Summary: I am in the process of selling this lens in favor of the Zeiss 18mm f/4, yet still I have a very high opinion of it. Here's the good: -This lens is very sharp. Central sharpness is great even wide open at f/4.
Excerpt: I owned a number of M series lens. You pay a small fortune for the "red dot".Cannot knock the quality of the Solms glass, but when you buy and use this lens ( I decided to sell my M6 and Bessa bodies as frankly loading from the bottom may appeal to the Leica elitist diehards, but life was not meant...
Excerpt: Just learning to use an M8; I exchanged the Voigtlander 28mm Ultron for this (thank you, Adorama!)This is everything I was looking for: amazing sharpness and dynamic range; beautiful color. It is also very well built; aperture and focus are smooth.
Excerpt: I WAS LOOKING FOR A WIDE ANGLE LENS FOR MY LEICA M8. THIS LITTLE JEWEL FITS THE BILL PERFECTLY. ... THE LEICA 21MM IS 3K OR MORE. THE ZEISS 21MM OVER 1K. THIS LENS HOLDS ITS OWN VERY WELL. I THOUGHT FOR [$] IT WOULD BE INFERIOR IN BUILT AND OPTICALLY...... WRONG!!
Excerpt: This works great on my Leica M8. Great for street photography, landscape and for travel. Don't need an external viewfinder due to a 28mm coverage in the viewfinder . Slight corner softness is seen. If you are using it for architecture look for something costing at least 2k.
