May I ask why your looking specifically for the 90 AA? Are u aware the 90AA has 55e filters and the others use 46e?
The 90 elmarit-m and 90 summarit use 46e filters as well.
I also have a question about long lenses:
I'm orientating myself for a longer lens after using a canon 85mm I borrowed. My longest lens till now is the 50 cron.
There are so many choices to pick from I kinda lost sight.
What I find important, I have both crons 28 and 35. I love the 28 because of its rendering and vignetting. The 35 is...Show more →
Robert, I had 90 Elmarit-M, the lens is very modern and share 46mm common filter. F2.8 is about right that I can consistently focus it. However, I sold it for three reason:
1. For normal portrait, I can simply move my feet to get exact shot by 50mm without worry too much about focus error.
2. For long shot, I have found the frame accuracy is not good for my need, for 21, we might get 2% error over the frame, for 35, maybe 5%, for 50, maybe 10%, but 90, I got almost 20% error that changing with distance, it is too compromised for me. Since I have no plan to add M240 in near future. I decide part with it.
3. Rendering, I feel the lens is very modern, sharp and high contrast. It is almost a baby 90AA. It is a good tool, but is not the way I preferred now. Also, f2.8 is kind of slow. So this lens goes to the group that I donít really like it for no obvious reason.
For the time being, I decide to limit my RF lens to 50mm and shorter, If you let me chose, I will pick one from 90 pre-AA, 75 ELmarit, 75lux or 75corn. And I will get 75cron (sell your 35cron) if price right and if I am into longer focal length again. I know Luka didnít like it, however, I feel the lens almost a twin to 50lux, and a good match for 28cron: sharp and gentle with nice bokeh. I have seen many good portrait from that lens and I know it can do landscape from its MTF. I have recently find I start like 50lux more and more especially after it went to repair.
