Kanazawa Castle Garden. Bessa R4M and Ultron 21mm f1.8, probably stopped down to around 5.6 -8. Note the lack of vignetting here! Ektar 100

Tom what do you shoot the Ektar at? I've found it behaves better outdoors shot at 64 or 80. Do you develop your own color?

I rate it at 100 - and even then I find it a bit "dense". Should try it @ 125 instead. I rarely shoot color so I have it developed at one of the few remaining labs in town - actually named "The Lab".

Tom, do you shoot Ektar at 100 or lower? I've had better luck shooting it at 80 and in bright light, 64. Your shots look great so of course inquiring minds want to know.

Portland, Maine. Nicely restored MGB. I shot it at f1.8 (1/2000s) just to see how well the lens handled the shallow depth of field. Focus is on the MGB emblem. Ektar 100 @ 100.

Looks like a good stablemate for the Zeiss 21mm f/4.5c.

The head bartender's website Cameraquest.com has had the announcement up for awhile now. And he's taking deposits now I believe.

yeah, I tested it also at photokina, definitely one of the coming purchases ! I doubt i won`t give my 21mm:4 away, because it is just so sweet and small. Regards Jukka W

The pics are convincing, 21mm and F/1,8. What now: Leica, Zeiss, C.V. That F/4,0-21mm was already a nice lens but after my Photokina ........

I for one am really excited about this lens, ordered mine on the day it was announced and can't wait to get shooting with it.

I'm sure it will be another quality VC offering.

Cheers

Jason

I can assure you, it is not soft. Even at 1.8 it is remarkably sharp. Look at the license plate on the red MGB (that is at f1.8 -f2.0). I havent had a chance yet to shoot comparisons with Biogon 21f2.8 and f4.5 and the VC 21f4 - but weather permitting - I will try some technical Pan and various 21's - including the Summilux 21f1.4.
