After testing the water with CV 21/4 (great little lens!) for a year or so, I finally decided and joined the club. I went with 21/4 instead of 3.4 that seems to be more popular here. I liked the smaller size (tho heavy!), 39mm filter size and LTM compatibility so I can put it on my IF. And I must say the lens looks gorgeous though I paid for something you'd pay for "UG" condition.

I really liked the CV 21/4 but it was quite contrasty. I wanted to get something a little more classic looking rendering for B/W and to align with my other lenses.

Just came back from a quick walk to get a coffee and developed the test roll. Nothing special to show, but I am liking the result so far.











1969 M4 BP, 1960 SA 21/4, Tri-X in Diafine.

I love those oldies Helen, they helped push me into getting one. I'm looking forward to what you do with it this time around.

Beautiful work giganova, it might just be me, but it appears you are really growing as a photographer, each post gets stronger and stronger.

I'm on the hunt for one of these myself. It's been on my radar for the past few years and I've been building my film kit around specific lenses based on their rendering rather than raw performance. This will round out my setup to give me 21/35/50 and I think that will be perfect.

I've loved following this thread over the years and I hope to join soon!

I seem to be going against the grain in planning passing mine on... While I love the lens and it's rendering/handling/etc, I just don't go so well with more than one lens in my arsenal - not sure how many lenses are required to make an arsenal, 2?

Michael -- I only use two lenses, the 21mm SA and a 50mm "rigid". They are permanently mounted on my two M4s. Don't need any other lens!

I hear you, and I love your work with them, especially your Coal Town project.

I mostly use the 35mm pre-asph summilux, and I don't think I want or need more than that... So I think I'll have a one lens arsenal soon, I am a simple person.

Well, I just alleviated Michael of his "too many lenses" problem.
I'm the new care-taker of his 21SA. Looking forward to participating!

I like the close up shot of the cat!

May I ask how did you rate the Tri-X in those?

Thank you, Gabor.

I shoot Tri-X about ISO 1000 - 1250 ish. I shoot without meter 90% of time (basically by gut feeling), but when I do use L-208 or light meter app, I set it to right in between ISO 800 and 1600. My brain is calibrated to ISO 1600 shooting so I mentally dial back a tad bit from there. Then I just develop in Diafine using the chronograph on my wrist watch, often some wine in my system.

I love this tread! Reading last week's posts alone it seems that several SAs are on their way to new owners. I got another one myself a couple of days ago: a 21/4 + IKWOO. It's on my M4-P now, but I'm planning it for use on the IIIf. Love the fact that it's convertible.

Nice work with the flash giganova!
Can I ask what flash you use? And I assume you hand hold it or are you shooting finderless? Or a double accessory shoe?

Thanks, Michael! I use a Metz 32 MZ-3 in "auto" mode with a long sync cord, hold the M4 in one hand (zone focus) and the flash in the other.

Wow. 21mm + flash + slow shutter! Very interesting. I should try this sometime.

The technique is a bit tricky because you want to blend the flash with the ambient light. Here is what works for me:

I set the flash to "auto" mode at f/8. Then I read from the exposure meter the corresponding exposure time at f/8 (in that case 1/4 sec). Next, I set the camera to 1/4 sec but the f/stop to 11 instead of 8. That means that I am underexposing both the flash and the ambient light by 1 stop, but the sum of both makes a great exposure.

I have extremely basic flash only so I need to tweak the method a bit, but will try. Thanks for the tips!

a lens that has been a favourite at times, then not used for a little while. I always come back to it though - here's a few from the last couple of months:
