Ok ... humor me here. I did some testing and came to some conclusions - and also have some questions.
First, I switched to shooting jpeg. Images are way sharper. Bummer. I'll be shooting jpeg until something better happens with LR4. (no, I'm not interesting in trying out anything else for now)
Second, I tested some other lenses with the M adapter. Since I bought it pre-owned (from the forum) I thought it might have been the adapter. Nope, don't think so. I slapped the CV Ultron 28 1.9 on there and wide open, it had some smearing; but by 5.6 it was virtually gone. Good to know. When it did occur though, it was heavily favored on the right hand side. Weird. Next, I put my old industar 61LD (basically a 50mm) on there and it didn't smear AT ALL. Weirder. So - it seems that wide open shooting with side angles will get me smeared - but shooting in jpeg will help some, as the image is overall sharper. BUT, haven't tested this back out with the 21mm lens yet. Will do that this afternoon. (21mm - jpeg - min app 5.6)
Now, the questions.
JPEG - do you have any favorite custom settings for this? I read somewhere that some people do -2 on noise correction and +2 on sharpen ... anything with DR or highlight stuff or anything?
Adapted lenses (MOSTLY AIMED AT BRODY) I am interested in the CV 15mm, and am wondering if you have had the smearing issue with this lens. I would like it to use on both the XP1 and my film body. Also, it's way cheaper than the upcoming 14mm (although testing on that lens looks pretty spectacular).
Thanks for humoring me on this! I will be using the XP1 and 35mm on a few shoots, so hopefully I'll have something decent to post soon!
