This is probably my all-time favourite lens for small-format cameras. It's tiny, robust, and plays damn well on both LTM and mirrorless. Here it is on an A7R:






It about matches the resolution of Sony's 36MP sensor in the center and has nice character on the corners.

I just got one of these, not bad for what I paid for it. I couldn't shoot smaller than f4 for my first test roll though so the edge sharpness is pretty poor. I can't really find much on here/flickr taken with the black/chrome version of this lens (the one I've bought).

When adapted on my mirrorless (Olympus E-M5 Mk1) the Mk1 I have is pretty sharp looking in the middle and just soft (almost focus distorted) at the edges up until about f/5.6 (still not as good as the center). Even with the 2.0x crop factor the edge falls off in resolution. I still need to get a roll thru it on my Canon 7.

For example this when I look at the center and edges (closest focusing distance though).



2.8 vs 8





It is nice though when it's a 'portrait' range on a cropped camera (E-M5 cropped shots)

8 second exposure, ISO 200, f/2.8


15 second exposure, ISO 200, f/2.8


30 second exposure, ISO 200, f/2.8


Mounted onto the Canon 7 :

Are you putting the extension tube on the LTM side, or on the x-mount side?

Nice. I have a 3-set of micro-4/3rd extension tubes coming mainly because it was much cheaper to get that than to find an LTM tube of sort. (plus I can always use those with my other adapted lens).

Mine has some fungus damage, but works well in low contrast scenes. Very strange curvature of field on even the A7s where the corners bend in toward the plane of focus. All-in-all, very small, sharp-enough lens.

Received one of these today. Remarkably sharp lens on an M typ 240 in indoor testing; need to actually try it on a Canon RF.

How bad flare are people getting pointing this at point light sources?

Thanks!

Mine performs better than my 35/1.8 does, but the 1.8 has some front element scratches that aren't helping.

Here are some examples: I know they aren't so much point light source, but you can see some of the general veiling flare that can show up on high contrast edges especially in the first one.

Pan F in HC110 stand, un-edited flatbed scans, mostly overcast day.

I had one and loved the results... as long as I was either stopped down a bit or close up enough that the corners were all bokeh. I eventually sold it as the corner softness was getting in the way too often when shooting on overcast days. And that year, Seattle was particularly grey.

It's a shame as the early silver version wa me fantastically compact and a great performer in better lighting.

This lens renders photos as nice as the Nikkor 3.5cm f2.5 lens does.

The Canon 35mm f2.8 wide open is very sharp in the center, and quickly goes un- sharp away from the center. I have both the Serenar chrome version and the Canon black & chrome version. Both have this quality. It gets better as you stop down. At 5.6 it is sharp over most of the frame and just a little soft in the outer corners. I think this is the sweet spot where you still get some blur in the background and edges but the center in focus is sharp.

Personally, I'd keep both. They both have 'character' and there's enough difference in their characters that both are worthwhile.

I have a J12 and I like the lens quite a lot. It's soft wide open, sharpens up as you stop down, but not til f/8 does clarity move towards the edges, so unless I'm looking for a particularly soft look I tend to use it around f/8 or f/11. There's some color cast which makes it more suitable for b/w than color work. Ergonomics are a bit awkward with the aperture buried deep in the front recess, and that glorious Biogon rear element makes it incompatible with some cameras- you may have trouble with a Canon P, and definitely can't use it with a m4/3 digital.

All things considered, I think the Canon 35/2.8 wins out, but the Jupiter-12 is interesting enough (and inexpensive enough) to make it worthwhile keeping. And you have a Fed-3, for which the Jupiter is a natural fit. I'd keep both.

That's my opinion, which matters not a whit unless you agree with it

I have the 35mm f2.8 and the f2.0 and usually gravitate towards the 2.8 because the controls are more user friendly and the lens has a more solid feel. But for landscapes the 2.0 is superb at f16-22. Both suffer from a close focus of 3.5 feet which was standard for the period they were built.
