Gary, the first BW one is great!
+1 I like the composition very much.
Andrew, another beautiful set. Love the color. and floating boat is my favorite too. simple and elegant. I will get a 80lux to get a piece of this rendering. Don't want invest anything longer into M system for now.
As for 35cron I have on hand are 35cron R latest and 35cron M first version. They are very different lens. 35cron R is a very modern lens and might be the sharpest lens I had at f2 in center. brilliant color and beautiful out of focus rendering. a extremely lovely DSLR lens IMO for the size, build and optics. However, FC is pretty extreme as well as coma, corner never really tight up, make it less ideal for picky landscape shooter. (I think it is just fine though.)
35cron V1 has very different.Rendering start from low contrast at f2. (I think it also not as sharp as 35cron R, though different platform) and can get top quality cross frame once stop down.(about the performance you expect from modern lens: say 35biogon) it is very sharp. I think I have posted several 100% crop from this lens over the time here. build is one of the best, very small. It got great reputation in Asia, especially in Japan for its cost no object design at the time. (the rumor said next version is reduce cost version, and never as good once stop down, which is true judge from MTF) But I have to say it is over rated and over priced that it doesn't have beautiful out of focus rendering as 35R or other better 35mm. Beauty is in eyes of beholder. I bet it will perform wonderful on film or MM. It will flare crazy if not careful for its original coating.
I don't want post picture since they are not at same platform and those expression are mostly got from the tons of images at all condition.
one from 35cron with M3
