In praise of the Russar 20 mm

The Russar 20 mm is a charming, old-fashioned lens that works very good even in the corners.
The formfactor is fantastic and allows me an unobtrusive style. I use Voigtlander 21 mm viewfinder.
I have a 18mm coding (WATE), but 21 mm (Elmarit) gives less purple fringe on a color camera.

Please post your own Russar pictures and enter my magic circle

The Russar lens does not have a rangefinder coupling.
So I use a hyperfocal distance setting. Because the distance ring is so 'slow', this is easy.
At F8 I have 5 m with a sharp focus to 2.5 m
At F11 I have 4 m & it goes to 2 m

The 'circle picture' was taken with F9 and 3 m.

I use the Russar only on my MM; For color I have an Elmarit 21mm
