Just received the Loxia 21 today from Jim "Grenache" from his listing here on FM B&S. The lens is in top condition, and as I mentioned in the Loxia thread, it is possibly the best lens I've ever owned in the 35mm format. I'm really impressed and happy with the purchase. Special thanks also to Bob Israel, who bird-dogged this item for me and vouched for what a great seller Jim is. Thanks guys!

Please forgive my torrent of images, but in my initial test shots today I was simply blown away by how nice this lens captures the types of subjects and scene I like.

I use LRCC to do my "normal" PP, which does involve a lot of small adjustments. BUT, I wanted to draw attention to the fact that I did nothing to use lens profile to correct distortion or relieve vignetting, wanting to see how the lens handled these factors. I did correct for exposure, sharpness, and CA (if there was any -- don't know yet!), straightening and cropping as desired. Just wanted to see how this fits in with my normal approach to subject and PP.

I can hardly wait to get this lens into the woods and water areas in Washington!

Here are some of my first shots with a note or two on each. Please don't expect prize winners here -- these are all just fast grab shots to satisfy my intense curiosity!





First image taken with new lens, wide open at f/2.8

2nd subject, focus on tower, f/5.6

  ILCE-7RM2    E 21mm F2.8 lens    21mm    f/5.6    1/640s    100 ISO    0.0 EV  







Focus on building, note flag is sharp too (slight forward field curvature?).

  ILCE-7RM2    E 21mm F2.8 lens    21mm    f/5.6    1/640s    100 ISO    0.0 EV  







Extreme contrast, pretty extensive adjustments on shadows and highlights -- lens holds up well!

  ILCE-7RM2    E 21mm F2.8 lens    21mm    f/5.6    1/400s    100 ISO    0.0 EV  







I'm sure I can make some money with this lens for architecture and cityscapes! :)

Here are some more, from a little later in the jaunt. The weather here today has been blustery, dusty, hot Santa Ana winds, and these little scenes put me in a mind of some sort of a hot and windy Moroccan village.

^^^ It's a great lens!
Even if tempted, please keep 'Clarity' setting at zero for this and most modern Zeiss lenses as the software generated micro contrast may 'overlap/blur' actual lens micro contrast. I am heading out now and my explanation may sound vague, but search FM for Denoir's post related to this topic. Enjoy your new toy!
