Cosina posted a gallery from the 21/1.8 a while ago, not sure if it's been mentioned here before: http://www.cosina.co.jp/gallery/iida-vm21/index.html

But IMO, it's difficult to really glean anything from these images at web-rez and considering most were shot at f/8... I guess it does confirm the lens forms an image.

Thanks Michiel - I now remember you posted a few images and it did seem reasonable. I'm also curious how it will compare on the GXR.

Looking at the specs on the Cosina site again, it would seem the new 21 is about the same weight and length as the CV35/1.2 II with the hood mounted. The actual body of the 21 though appears to be somewhat shorter, so perhaps the center of gravity will be closer to the camera.

Gary: As a long-time Hamiltonian I'm touched by your choice of avatar! Someday you'll have to make a pilgrimage to the original store on Ottawa Street North, which by the way, is only a few doors down from the camera shop I worked at in the 90s...

some samples here shot on film but the distortion seems pretty minimal. Can't wait for Ron's report

And more here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rapidwinder/

Hmm, looks not bad. I guess I can cancel the order for the lens now?

From what I recall from Michiel's Photokina test images, the distortion seemed to be regular barrel distortion and should be pretty easy to correct without a custom profile. The 21 Lux has fairly strong mustache distortion and pretty high CA, but is well corrected by LR's profile.

I'll be curious to see how much the 21/1.8 purple fringes, as the 21 Lux is extremely susceptible to this, but again, the new fringe correction in LR usually resolves this very effectively.

Edit: after browsing through Tom Abrahamsson's images on Flickr, distortion does seem to be quite well controlled. Since these are film scans I assume he hasn't done additional corrections to them.

Looking forward to getting the lens on Monday/Tuesday.

I thought you might like the Avatar Ron. I should have checked out that store when I was in the area a few weeks ago. I may end up heading back there in early February so might have to check it out...

Thanks for the comments guys.

Gary, many great photos from your hike. Looks like a fun place to visit.
airfrogusmc, I like the abstract photos on p 613.
BA-photos, the second one is well done.
Joe, great b&w's. The one with the man in the subway station (?) is my favourite, I like the composition a lot.
Michael, I like your last from the beach.

Thanks for the remarks to my photos. Also thanks all for the many inspiring photos shared here.

Interesting posts on various 21mm lenses. I have the zm 21/2.8 but don't use much. The need of external VF kind of hindering me.

I am lucky with the two architecture photos shown. Many of my photos taken in the sunny afternoon with contrasting light got blown highlights. Still new to M9. May have to underexpose a bit under that condition.

Few shots of a street performer that I enjoy watching in that afternoon. Tried very hard to recover the highlights in PP.

The first one does it for me. Sparkling, good light with a alienating background streetscene.
Nice!

This is a fantastic shot! I love the looks on both the guy and gal (whose looking over her shoulder). I would definitely crop out the guy on the far right, further emphasizing the other two.

I must be slow as I didn't catch this initially

Joakim, nice car and very nice shots! I like the composition on #2 shot with the sunburst, excellent!
wstam, excellent set! I actually like your B&W pp, looks good with lots of rich midtones.
Edward, excellent set! Nice angles on #1. I see a lot of smiles on that last shot
Allen, another excellent set from you. #3 is my favorite.

Had some "warm" weather (32F) this morning and took a walk with our older son & the 28Cron before I send in for repairs. Mostly f/2.8 and f/4 with a ND filter. I really think this lens has some magic dust inside. I'm looking forward to shooting this lens and other wider glass with the EVF on Type 240 and maybe say goodbye to VF blockage?
















100% crop
