Pensacola Farmers Market and Zeiss Hologon 16/8 plus M9

I was at the Farmer's Market about an hour ago.
I set the M9 to ISO 1000. Illumination was tricky due to the large trees with shadows and bright sunlight mixing together. I really like using this lens now. It takes some time to get over the challenges of color smearing and vignetting, but once you get over those, the rest is just wonderful.
I used Perfect Effects 9 to convert jpg files to B&W rendering.
This lens is always at F8 without the capability to be changed. I set the distance to 1.5 metres. This covers almost any setting for me.


In the last image: this gentleman makes the best scones. Dana picked some out for herself and for Lina.

Some of these images looks like normal lens taken, not crazy UWA 16. And none of them with UWA too much effect which turned GW off from using 21mm RF lens.
But perhaps we was mentioning vignetting. This lens seems to be SA character free, which is at the pro side for me.

I'm going to load our EOS 300, slap our daughter 16-35 zoom and take one tree photos at 16mm. I was trying different normal focal lengths for this particular tree, but never feel close and wide enough.

The Hologon is distortion free, and this was the main reason why I got this lens. The images from this lens look normal, but this is a 16mm lens in the end.
