Do the same comments also apply to the lens's wider sibling? I'm fascinated by that one and was aiming to try it out one day. Right now, I'm content with the CV 15mm screw-mount

Yep. These were the camera first few shots to deliberately test the lens against the sun. Both were shot at f22 and the sun ray came out beautifully

Jaap is certainly right. It wasn't meant to be anything near scientific. The test shots were more to make sure that there aren't any obvious problem with the new camera. I just thought to add...

I hadn't thought about the filter. You are absolutely right, only the CV28mm has UV/IR filter on. The other 2 lenses do not have that.

I'm still looking for UV/IR in 43mm and 58mm sizes, by the...

Is US$650 too much for a GA645i ?

Saw one on offer at this price. The shutter count is pretty low, approximately 600. I had imagined it to be a bit cheaper, so I thought I'd check in with the experts :o

I'm a 135 format RF user...
