A7, Olympus OM Zuiko 21mm 1:3.5 @ f/8
Coast near Carmel
Those are nice. I considered getting this lens or the Pen F 20mm, because I do like MF lenses. However, I'm leaning toward the SEL20F28, due to the small profile, and for those times when a faster focus is required.
On APS-C, it does not make much sense when there're SEL20 and Sigma 19mm. But on FF, not lot of other choices. This lens is wide and small.
Nice shots, great colors!
I see some serious vignetting though and quite a distortion is photo #2, or is just my idea?
You are right. They are there and I didn't correct it.
All wide open, I think there are no obvious vignetting now. I also applied Nikon 20/2.8D profile in C1. Yes I know the only 21mm lens profile in C1 is Zeiss 21mm, however the Nikon 20/2.8 profile seems to do the job better.
Great scenes from downtown NY and the Westside.
Fantastic results from the Zuiko. It lives up to it's reputation, and pricey cost.
The colors are rich and contrast is strong. Great resolution.
I also wanted a 20/21mm class manual, and settled for a more affordable Tokina made vintage 21mm f/3.8 T4. A bit hefty in size, but image quality is satisfactory if not stellar. Doesn't have the contrast and pop of the Olympus.

Can't tell if it's field curvature at close focusing distance or just soft on the edges... I suspect the former. Anyway, sharp in the middle. One of these days, I'll actually take my new camera outside

It might just be that DoF is much shallower when you close focus.
It's possible... her ears are pretty big

Headed down to the river for some sunset action. Wasn't nearly as good as I had envisioned it in my head before I left the house, but a little LR got it close.

It does closeups too. Wide open...

Experimenting with a 10 stop ND. Had to crop it down a little since I used a 49mm -> 55mm step-up ring. Perhaps not the best solution for this lens

Ah Portland! Very nice results. Wonderful light.
