The 28s are nice, but wondering if it might be too close to the 40. Then again, it would be like a 35/50 combo which isn't entirely bad... but for a two lens combo maybe too close.
Anyone know how a 21 matches up with the M8 viewfinder? The 24mm lines are a bit in so I'd imagine the entire finder to be around 21-22mm. If that is the case then I could definitely swing a 21, otherwise I may need to stick with 24/25 since I don't want to use an external finder.
Will do a little reading on the 28...Show more →
I did not realize you were shooting M8, which is cool
I don't know about the VF lines, in M9 you can't see the 28 lines with glasses.
Those CV 21/4s are easy to find, and really cheap, and super tiny and light. Nothing to carry. The CV 15 could be fantastic on the M8, again some of those are coupled and some not.
The high-performance deal is zm21/2.8, which by all accounts is great lens. 900ish used.
The CV 28/2 or 1.9 Ultron would blend with 40/2 very well I think, and that is a versitile lens, indoors and out. 450ish.
The rare CV 28/3.5 would be fantastic on the M8, I'd expect. It's also tiny but brass or something heavy, so it weighs more than the other skopars but still lighter than 80% of RF lenses. I found it sharper than my 28 cron on the nex-5 in some shots, but corners were showing "digital SA".
There a bunch of sweet 28s: all versions of elmarit--obviously they vary alot, but all are pretty sweet in their own way, M-hex, ZM28, Rokkor 28.
It seems to me 28 would be great FL on the M8, like 35mm on M9.
Are you shooting just B&W?
PS: Great set Katie!
