The naming designations are not very relevant, just do your homework on the specific lenses you're interested in.

The CV 15 works well on the 5N, but produces the magenta color shift that many of the rangefinder wide angle lenses do. It can be corrected via Lightroom Flat Field plugin or Cornerfix, sometimes less drastic measures can correct the color shift, such as purple channel saturation and hue adjustments.

Also worth noting, some of the lenses come in M or LTM mount. Optically they're the same, but not always physically (obviously I mean aside from the mount). For example, I specifically purchased the LTM version of the 15mm because it's more compact and 39mm filters can be sort of rigged up to fit snugly inside the tiny built in hood.

Other CV lenses, such as the Lanthar 90 (works great on the 5N by the way) never came in M mount.

An image from a personal trainer today. I am doing some work for them on their website and needed some 'stock' type images.

Beautiful shots. Whether the 5N color shifts/vignettes or not seems to be hit-or-miss. Mine and Jacob Ds do, yours appears not to. No idea why some do and some don't. [shrug]

That's some wicked cool lens flare in this one.

Nice. More great information. Thanks again. I'll look in to the Cameraquest site and smarten myself up. To be clear, the cv15 with an adapter will work like a 24mm lens, correct?

15 x 1.5= 22.5mm FOV

The 15 is an excellent lens, I just find it a pain to fix the corners on my NEX-7, so it's not used as much as I want to use it, maybe on my next camera.

Very nice flare Alan! I lusted after the FD 35/2 while in high school.
Great use of light Jim.
Cool abstract Luta.

With the NEX-7 and Voigtlander 21/1.8:

@1.8






and another one just to see how the OOF speculars would go. Sun is just at the edge of the frame and the lens handled it really well:







Speaking of edge color shift, I noticed it changes with this lens as it's stopped down...

@1.8






@5.6

Thanks all - I had dialled down the flare in pp, but now I'm thinking I should call a bug a feature (as we say in software development ;-)) and reveal the crazy flare in all its glory. What do you think of this version?

Thanks to all for your comments on the white horse shot.One thing that i appreciate about the Sony Sensor is the ability to shut down the shadows with out destroying the shot and maintaining detail in the highlights.

sebboh - i like the pine tree shot

alan- m - i think in a shot like above the more flare the better i like the second shot more.

Here is on from Nex 7 / Sigma / Accura 135 f2.8 @ f16
