Glad to see some activity in this thread still! I'm considering this lens after shooting (very briefly) with a friend's a couple of years ago. Have the major proponents of this lens moved on to other pastures? Or are they still shooting with it?



Think I slightly missed the focus here, but still love the result. Not sure if this was a v1 or v2, which brings me to ...

(EDIT: Looking back at my notes -- this was v. 2. I had forgotten.)

Any consensus on v1 or v2? Both good? One better than the other (in IQ or build or anything else)?

I've had one since 2011. There's just no other 35 like it in M-mount.

In my opinion, the V2 wins out on mechanics alone (closer focus, bayonet-style hood). The alleged IQ improvements may be there, but the V1 was already amazing. Sadly, the V2 does not come in chrome!

with an m2 and its ~.7m rf coupling, i actually prefer not having .5m close focus... i still have and love mine, even though my 35mm f2.5 sees more use.

I am owner of v1 of this lens and for me it seems kinda boring optics. Was using a lot of Zeiss optics and I am so disappointed so will sell this one
So if someone want to buy this one in NL please PM me anywhere

I used to have v1 of this lens, which I used primarily with the Epson RD1s. Sold the lens when I sold the body. I've recently picked up a nice copy of v2, and have been using it with a Sony A7R.

I still like it, especially on the Epson. Road side BBQ, Saigon. August 2010. Epson R-D1s - CV 1.2/35.
