Congrats on the lens for such a good price. Too bad the seller did not know the difference. I hope that you enjoy it and it performs for you. It is a great performer. I am really enjoying mine.
Thanks! I was able to shoot properly today (tripod and randomly had some light as well). I concentrated to most critical usage of mine; mid distance boke shots. And Elmarit-R 28mm v2 performs really well; subject stands out clearly separated from background, boke is smooth (of course it's possible to lure out some bad boke as well) and everything in focus plane seem to be drawn really well already at f/2.8. Only bad thing seems that A7r (I have masked the adapter, but even that didn't help) was very picky light sources just outside the frame, and needed to shade the lens with hat/hand/whatever even sun would not even shine directly to lens.
Usually I'm more after lenses with interesting character, but this lens makes me want to shoot with it just because it's performance. I have been trying to figure out which 28mm to shoot this shooting season, and I'm pretty sure I have solved that question now. Usually I'm shooting with Zeiss and I have both C/Y and ZE Distagons, but I'm not 100% happy to either of them. Seems that I need to mix brands when shooting, hopefully colors are not very different compared to my Zeiss lenses.
Few test shots wiht Leica Elmarit-R 28mm f/2.8 v2 @ f/2.8 & ISO 100 & B+W Circular Polarizer 55mm
