|onsplekkie#44512 date: May-6-2020|
flare control: 3
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Voigtlander 1.7/35 Ultron|
Carl Zeiss Loxia 2/35
Konica Hexanon 1.4/35
Nikon 1.4/35 Ais
|price paid:||175 euro secondhand|
|positive:||Sharp wide open where it matters most.|
High image quality for low price
|negative:||Heavy & large size for a 35mm lens. But compaired to smilair 1.4 lenses of other brands sort of the same so a neutral negative?|
Need to stop down quite a bit to get that corners sharp.
Flare give smears through the whole image.
|comment:||If you you don't mind it's weight & size surely a lens that will give you the rendering & sharpness you're looking for in a 35mm 1.4 lens. Obviously it's manual focus only. It's colours & contrast not up to the quality of my Zeiss or Voigtlander 35mm. Best bang for buck for a 1.4 lens.|
