For A7 you could try ZA135/1.8, my favorite zeiss 135.

on a whim, I pulled the trigger on a Minolta 24/2.8 to fill a gap between 14 & 35 in time for christmas.

it's my second time owning this lens, but this time I opted for the RS version. it's a nice, small and light but it ain't gonna win any IQ awards, and I wish it was faster for available light portraits.

No worries. They'll get really cheap after the X Pro-2 comes out.

As I have already mentioned, I have my new in like new Condition Contax (C/Y) 21mm f2.8 Distagon MMJ in hand. Unfortunately my Novoflex Contax to NEX adapter has yet to show up on USPS Tracking since December 17 and is the only one of 3 packages shipped from the seller that day that has not shown on tracking; it could be lost and at this point and I can't mount the lens onto my A7r. We can't start a trace until January 5; I should have just gotten this from B&H.

On a happier note, my Leica R 28mm f2.8 Elmarit V2 has made it through Customs in NYC; hopefully I will have the lens on either Thursday or Friday.

Bought a Vivitar (Komine made) 28/2 Close Focus, it's ugly as pond slime but boy, crazy IQ ! This is just the very first shot I pulled with it, amazed by the background blurring ability AND sharpness of this baby. I've nicknamed it "ugly Betty", lol...

Picked up a Fuji 23/1.4 today. I had reviewed it earlier this year and it was the second ~35mm FOV lens I'd used recently that I really liked. I'd never been a huge fan if the 35mm AOV, but I'm liking it a lot more now and so I'm excited to put it to real use.

Panasonic 8/3.5 fisheye - used from the local pro shop. Was able to test it out and it appeared to be excellent optically (i.e., sharp and well centered).

Building a m43 kit for times when my D800 + FX glass is too big and heavy and I can take the IQ hit.

Obtained a Zuiko 35-70/3.5-4.5.
Ability to close-focus (peaking in 70mm) is pleasing.

Looks very nice. Can you compare it with an Oly 21/3.5 ?

Thanks - it is a gorgeous little lens, my favorite OM so far. I don't personally have a 21/3.5 but based on what I've seen posted the f/2 is at least as good at f/4 and obviously much better at f/2 and f/2.8...

For a moment I thought this thread was entitled "What is your most recent lens purse?"

A present, not a purchase, but my newest lens. I look forward to having some time and good light to try it out properly:

Helios 40-2 Nikon mount (85mm f/1.5):

For me, it is Leica Wide Angle Tri-Elmar (16-21). I need some more time with it, but I think it will be a keeper. For some reason, I find the Canon 17L T/S big on the A7r so I suspect that will be going up for sale....

It's better than the 21/3.5 at all apertures, basically. (jcolwell, you have had these, I seem to recall?) I had both for a while, the 21/3.5 wins on size but otherwise the f/2 is the better lens, I think.

the 21/2 is a gem, no doubt. But for most gorgeous OM lens I think I would have to nominate the OM 24/shift. One could drown in that beautiful front element...

My most recent alt purchase was a Super Angulon 47mm XL.
