    The missing piece to my CV lens puzzle. I now have the 15/21/28/35/50 all in LTM mount. I got this last Wednesday afternoon, but the weather has been incredibly bland so today is the first chance I've had ot shoot something besides grey. These have absolutely no artistic merit, I'm posting them only to show how much color shift/vignette this lens produces on my 5N.

    The vignette is fairly pronounced, the color shift is less than I expected. For this series I downloaded the shots, converted to DNG, ran CornerFix and then Exifchange. then I processed the CF shot to a reasonable facisimile of a decently exposed shot. I then applied those settings directly to the original DNG file for comparison purposes.

    First shot is original DNG, second is the CornerFix file.
    cv28_test130127_01.
    cv28_test130127_01a.

    Again, the first shot is original DNG, second is the CornerFix file. The magenta color shift is more evident in this shot than in the first one.
    cv28_test130127_02.
    cv28_test130127_02a.

    The corners look pretty good here, obviously more testing required. If I get free later this afternoon I'll try and get out and shoot something worth viewing.

    CS5 has been a little squirelly lately, but I finally got it to actually process a HDR. This is three shots at -1.3/normal/+1 EV. In the full size you can see the ghosts of the weeds. The wind was blowing pretty hard (which is why there are waves).

    Here's the as metered shot.

    And here's the HDR shot.

    Been looking for small wide MF prime for candid work so jumped at chance to get this when a FB friend bought up three. However, since cold and I've been busy have not had chance to use it how I want or very much, but got my Willian Eggleston on and just reacted to urban colors and forms one day. I think I'm going to find it has some character.
