    Another of the incredibly tiny CV lenses, this the 35mm f/2.5. 5N/CV35, some shot with the helicoid adapter extended to allow closer focus, because like generally all rangefinder lenses, the CVs don't focus very close compared to slr lenses in the same focal range.

    Vow, another Voigtlander and good samples:) I think the pattern of the tactile cones in the snow is the best.

    How is is performing on nex, any corner issues? I tried one with m43 and the corners weren't the best so I returned. Maybe I should have kept it as it is very small lens and the prices were lower compared to now.

    No corner issues that I've noted so far, but we are just beginning our journeys. This may be my favorite focal length on the 5N for general use. But, I did just pick up a 28 that I still need to put through its paces so we'll have to see. ;)

    The CV 35 seldom comes off my NEX. It's a great size and weight, I like the focal length, and I love the way it renders. I've taken hundreds of shots with it and never noticed any corner issues myself.

    Hmmm... the 35 seems to have been somewhat neglected the second half of this year. Going to have to fix that next year. ;)

    This is a great series. Usually I don't care for flower pics at all but this is more than passable (think I saw it before here). The last two are my faves.

    Thanks Ad, most of these are reposts, just gathering them into one place to make it easier for people to do lens searches.

    I wish. I had this lens for my E-M5 back in 2012. Wouldn't mind having another copy.

    I bought it to use it with 12MP m43 along with the nex camera I had and send the lens back after seeing the smeared the corners with m43 camera... M43 has even thicker sensor topping then Sony cameras... That might be one of the reasons that you might not see dust with them.

    Well first day with this lens and a Kolari thin filter modded A7.

    Q6cmsSJh.

    and at f2.8 (I think)

    N4RDsZLh.

    The Kolari mod certainly fixes up the corners on the FF sensor. There are color shifts so I applied the LR camera profile and then WB tweaks. My sensor is filthy I found out :(

    You can zone focus this lens and walk around and shoot.
