Ok, Deadbear's old pic-a-day thread was getting rather long, so I decided to start a season-specific version. Y'all jump in. Well, my CV12 finally got here. The USPS sent it from California to Washington state via New jersey (where it sat for nearly 2 days). No wonder they're going broke! Anyway, it's finally here. It's small. It's fairly heavy (like all the CV lenses). It's the older thread mount version like dbmiller has. It displays purple/magenta color cast and vignetting (no big surprise) on my 5N, so I need to work up a CornerFix profile for it. And then I have to find something to go shoot with it. I played with this test shot in PS6 to reduce the color shift/vignette & it didn't turn out too bad. Seems to be sharp in the corners, or at least it doesn't smear the corners anyway.
