You don't have RF focusing as you don't need it due to the great depth of field. Minimum focus distance 0.2m.

Did you use the filter? I do not see any light fall off.

I picked up a developed roll of film I shot using Hologon on M4. Everything looks very sharp using loupe. Can’t wait to scan it. I will post results.

Thank you Erik. I just ordered ten fresh rolls of film for my M3. I will use the Hologon mainly with it from now on.

Thank you Robert.
I am thinking of bringing with me M3 with 16mm Hologon, plus M9 with pre-asph Lux 35/1.4. I may throw also in a tiny E-PL1 with a small 50mm lens as my tele.

I am not sure whether I like the results better with outdated film or with fresh film.

Great shots!!, it's a lens of extreme - in contrast, sharpness, color saturation, even in minimum focusing distance. I love all the results, Raid.

Thank you very much Toreno. I am getting used to this lens on the M3. It can be used like a P&S camera, and the only point to remember is getting very close to the main subject of interest. I am thrilled at the resulting sharpness and colors and overall rendition.

Thanks. The images with film look much sharper than images from my M9.

It costs around $1500 for a very clean lens, plus $500 for DAG to change the mount to M. The lens that I bought looked new to me. It was a demo, I think.
