I'm still not seeing much from / hearing much about the Distagon 2/25. It's a lens that's been on my radar for a while - it's a good FL on APS, especially with the possibility of a SpeedBooster making it also double as a "real 25mm". The specs look great, and it seems to have a really nice up-close rendering. But I've only seen maybe 10 pictures with one so far.
Anyone have any thoughts on it?
I have the 2/25. I bought it to replace an outstanding Canon 24 1.4 II. I figured I would like this lens even better (and I do). Agree with what Mescalamba wrote, the lens is very sharp, has some distortion and heavy vignetting wide open.
One thing about this lens...it is extremely well corrected for CA. I think that is what stands out in the design of the lens, and gives it a somewhat unique IQ. Just as the 21 Distagon is distinguished by its sharpness across the frame wide open.
I also chose this lens because it is a tad bit smaller, lighter and more discreet than my former Canon 24. (On a Canon Rebel you might mistake it for the kit lens). It weighs the same as the D21.
