My, there's certainly some good stuff going on in this thread.

One with the a7r and Hassy Planar 80 on bellows somewhere between 1:2 and 1:1. The raspberry bloom's about 19mm in diameter.

There are times that this lens drive me nuts with its lack of edge and corner sharpness, but sometimes it's just perfect. Only changes were WB and a crop.

D'oh! The Contax G Biogon. I copied the bbcode from my last post and wasn't paying much attention. :P

The G Biogon certainly is. I've never had the Distagon, though I've read that it does. The Biogon isn't perfect in the corners at f/8, but good enough for me at f/5.6 or f/8 for the landscapes I do.

that was my view as well. corners are pretty sharp on the 16mp nex sensor at f/11.

i don't think the distagon's field curvature will show up much on aps-c.

Season of Touit - Picture 8
Week 36, Saturday - The Landscape mode
"Ultra wide-angle lenses are often considered to be special lenses for special purposes, especially a lens as wide as the Touit 2.8/12. Having used the lens for couple of weeks now, I've really grown to like the focal length it offers (but not mastered though) and I think the special label is somewhat misleading. There are at least two simple ways of using it in any photography. Firstly, one can use the wide angle to cover as much as possible of the entire view seen by the eye. In my mind this is the 'landscape mode' and the Touit 2.8/12, of course, works great here. [...]"

Season of Touit - Picture 9
Week 37, Wednesday - Poor little daisy
"While I've been sharing my experiences with the Touit 2.8/12 & Touit 2.8/50M for couple of weeks now, I have avoided the most obvious topic: the image quality. Image quality in itself is of course a complex subject and I am not an optical engineer neither I have the technical know-how to evaluate the most microscopic qualities of the optical performance – therefore I will mostly speak about my experience. But this is not the reason of my avoidance regarding this topic. The truth is that I find the topic of 'image quality' to be very exaggerated and sometimes even distorted in photography related forums and therefore that it is challenging to write about it without being interpreted by this exaggerated hype.
