Picked up a new lens the other day, a Voigtlander 35mm f/2.5 rangefinder lens (hereafter referred to as the CV35). The wind is blowing like 20 mph at the moment, but I wanted to see how this lens works on my M mount helicoil focusing adapter.

The normal minimum focus distance for this lens is .7 meters (just under 28 in). With the helicoil it comes down to .3 meters (12 in) give or take. I didn't measure it, it may be a tad less. Focus was on the spider.

Anyway, wind blowing & hand held @ f/2.5 I managed this shot. I'll go out with the tripod when the weather settles down and try again, but for now I'm pretty pleased that this lens is going to be a winner.

Exif data is incorrect for aperture. I forgot to change it when I ran it through ExifChanger, it's f/2.5 not f/8.
