I thought this came out alright.

This lens draws different from any other lens I have--I'm not sure what it is. Everything has a tendency to look kind of 'hyper-real'--something to do with the contrast. Not really sure how to articulate it.

Anyway, I still really like using it.



This is new Portra 400, and I've cropped it very slightly to tighten the composition. Representative FOV is probably about 23mm after the crop.

I expecting a CV 21/4 in S mount in the mail. Is it true that it does not do well on the Leica M9 (for M or LTM versions)?

Just received mine a few weeks ago after selling my 20mm Nikkor. Been having a blast, but struggling a bit with the RF/VF dance with kids running around... it gets easier when they slow down, as they did below!



Great little lens. I won't leave home without it!

Newport, OR. Highway 101 bridge over Yaquina Bay at near sunset.

Newport-1 by hollenbj, on Flickr

Shot this on FP4 developed in Rodinal, so grain is obvious. But, I'm happy with how this lens flares. The sun is behind the nearest bridge support. Almost gives a ghost/double look to the concrete work. Some might not like this but I do. Beats the blowout I'd get with lesser lenses.

More fun with the 21. A really nice focal length for scenes with a lot going on.

In seriousness, they are whacking a pinata, which is a cardboard box stuffed with candy and little prizes. It's a Central American tradition, but quite popular in the US as well.

For the size and money this lens is highly capable, however if you want technical perfection in a compact 21 you need the C Biogon (which is what I eventually traded up to).

I rarely use anything wider than 35mm, with 24 being the absolute widest I'd ever shoot and it's very rare I like my shots that wide. In fact, whenever I think of why anyone would want a <21mm I don't understand it. This thread proves me wrong and makes me re-appreciate the wide shots. Great stuff everybody.

Voigtlander Color Skopar 21mm f4.0 in S-mount on a Nikon SP. Mercedes Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. Taken the day after it opened in 2006. This is the famous "racetrack" - each car was illuminated with a spot light and the sound of its engine was played - LOUD over the speaker system. The grand final was all cars lit up and a full symphony of engines. Evidently it was bit too loud and later the volume was turned down. TriX and D76 and @ f4.0

Wah-ha-ha-hooow! Fantastic shots!

I too have never shot anything so wide (28mm was my go-to glass on my University-days' Nikon F, currently 35 and 50mm on my RFs), and have never even considered anything so wide. But now I have to re-think my focal length strategies.

Great stuff

Do you use this lens in hyperfocal too? I am wondering how wide the depht of field will be if a stop the lens down to f/11 at least.

Thanks

I'd keep it to f8 myself, that gives you from 0.9m to infinity, hyperfocal.

Do you think at f/11 diffraction will come into play?

Hi Bob, I could not help but notice the aspect ratio of the photo above and those in your web site! it's a 0,80 ratio the same of MF (6x7) and LF while 24x36 has a 0,66 ratio.

So I assume you always crop when printing?

Do you do that to change the viewer perception of the wide angle?

Thanks

I simply crop all of my images to where they look best. If an image works better as an 8x10 aspect ratio rather than a 2x3, I just crop to that. If it works better uncropped, I leave it that way. A few work out better as squares, so they end up that way. You can even find some 6x6 negs cropped to 8x10 prints which others are square.

Nothing fixed, nothing sophisticated, nothing involved, just cropping photos so that they can look the best they can. I do use custom cut mats for my exhibition prints rather than letting the factory defined sizes drive my decision.
