    Recently I woke up really early to go and shoot in the beach near my place (Carcavelos). I wanted to be there for sunrise and low tide. I have used my recently bought (used) Nikkor wide angle 24mm lens, and also the Leica 90. With some recent off-season rains, the air was crisp and clear, with some clouds providing interest in the sky. Shot with the A7 and the A7II.

    I am liking the Nikkor lens very much, really high quality. The only thing I don't like is the focusing ring, not nearly as buttery smooth as the Zeiss or Leica lenses. But I use hyperfocal anyway.

    regards.

    Great set! And I think 1, 2 & 5 are extraordinary.

    Perhaps the lens just needs a CLA job? When I received my sample it would not focus to infinity, so I sent it for repair and adjustment. I paid 92 EUR for the repair, but the glass was pristine, so it was worth it.

    What problems or defects do you see in your images?

    I don't think there's anything wrong with the lens. The problem lies BEHIND the camera more than anything else.
