Guys, somehow my M240 got knocked out of alignment. And after fighting with them over my 50APO that doesn't seem like it'll ever come back.. I dare not send my M240 in for realignment.
The two lenses that are greatly effected are the 50 Noctilux 0.95 and the 75 APO. The other lenses are unaffected, which is I guess normal for f/2 and f/3.4 medium and wide angles, but oddly enough the 50Lux-asph is acting better from 1.4 onwards, focusing is spot ON... sigh, so I don't know what's going on (well I do, but I have no idea how it fell out of alignment, as I've only had the Noctilux on since the 50APO left for Germany a month ago, and I store the lens in a constant state of minimum focus which is the easiest on the mechanism).
And yes, I did testing using a tripod and live view and optical focusing and live view testing and back and forth until my eyes burned.. I used a pin with a ball on the end of it (actually the test images are pretty cool).
Anyway, kinda bummed out since I'm leaving for Japan in a weeks time, and I have no 50APO and now my camera is acting wonky (first world problems, I know, but still.)
The A7 n 55 1.8 ZA are looking pretty good right now.. Kinda wishing Sony had designed the thing a little nicer, cosmetically that is.
Anyway, been a bit busy with work, but will get to some older images from a few months back when I have the time.
BTW Jawad - I bought the Noctilux for the same reason, but found that I actually use it during the day a lot more then I thought I would use it. And I can usually get away with shooting @ 0.95 iso 200 and under 4000th of a second on most days here without an ND filter, since it's usually very overcast these days in Singapore..
