i've always been tempted by that lens, but for the ridiculous price i'd rather get a 28 cron.
with regard to 50 lux pre-asph, how do you guys feel about it stopped down to f/5.6 or smaller and landscape use?
i've been using brad's on my NEX-7 and think it's a beautiful portrait lens at large aperture but rather weak in any other capacity (nice color though). was wondering if the same was true on leica's less troublesome sensors? the 35 lux pre-asph on the other hand is a pretty all round awesome lens btw and cheaper than the michael's v1 cron...Show more →
Derek, Just pick one with goggle. Which should be more reasonable and just remove goggle for NEX and future FF MILC.
As for 50lux pre-ASPH, from its MTF, there is a huge dip (40lp/mm down to ground) in 15mm zone at f5.6. So, I am not surprised to hear stop down performance. Though I don't know if it is just FC or not sharp. My 50lux R at f4 behave about the same as pre-ASPH M at f5.6 (huge dip at 15mm zone), but I found it is great at f8. I'd love to know if pre-ASPH clean it up at f8. However, if MTF is right, it should be very sharp WO, more than 50lux R, which I feel it is very good.
As for 35lux pre-asph, its slow down performance shouldn't be as good as 35cron V1. but it is compatible to 35cron IV, pretty good. All above information are judged from MTF from leica pocket book
35cron V1 WO
