Testing out my 35/2.8 PCS Arsat lens...

Took three shots, camera oriented horizontally, shifted +5, 0, -5 vertically, then stitched in panorama factory afterwards.

Stitching seems to have gone really well, at least as far as I can tell

Image after stitching was about 3000x3000.

Now I just have to figure out how to duct-tape the aperture ring to f/11 so that it doesn't move while I shift up/down...

Hi,
how is the performance and quality of the lens? I was looking at it a few days ago too, and was quite tempted.

Best regards,
Wenyao

The performance is pretty good. It is a little bit of a pain to set aperture (actually, it is more of a pain to make sure it doesn't change...)

It is very sturdy though, and the lack of AF doesn't matter too much for landscape shots (which is why I bought it). Focus so the focusing scale says infinty is fine and snap away...

And the price wasn't all that bad for a lens that has shift control...

I have this lens and also the Canon 45mm F/2.8 TSE lens. Let me tell you... for the price the Arsat 35mm f/2.8 PCS is a steal. Very fun to play with and provides fantastic photo's for the price. Funny, I was playing with both lenses today....
