    Today I've got a new example of a Walimex 135mm/2.0 (Nikon mount) and could shoot first test pictures in a sunny moment.
    Until now I'm very pleased. With open aperture it is very sharp and seems to have less CA than comparable Zeiss lenses with a focal length of 135mm.


    Only highlights and shadows were changed in LR

    Never heard of this lens, but the results are nice.

    Walimex, Samyang, Rokinon, Opteka all the same.

    There is a E-mount(full frame/APS-C) 135mm f2 that was released not too long ago. If the rendering is as nice as this I will probably buy. Looks like it renders images beautifully.

    Samyang/Walimex offer 10 different mounts for this lens if I remember correctly and no AF. I bought the Nikon version, because it uses the longest distance and could adapted to a Nikon DSL/V1, a Fuji or the Sony.

    It is no lightweight with 11 elements and 880g. So it is noticeable.

    Besides you can use lens turbo with it that way. I am going to purchase it some time. Probably in Pentax mount just for that purpose.

    Today I got a few moments to take pictures at a local funfair at build.
    All are made at f/2 and direct jpg uploads without external processing.
