Sample pictures: You may click
on the sample image (except closest focus) for full resolution. The
full resolution image opens in a new window, so you can keep it open
for comparison. Focus is on the
dish to the right of the big solar panel near the center of the photo.
F 2. ISO 100.
Closest focus is 85cm from
edge of the lens, F 8. Focus on
the program wheel of the camera.
This is a very sought after and often quite expensive lens for Paxette
cameras, it has a 15 blades iris and it's
luminous. Wide open it's (too)
soft, at F 4 it's fine in the center, but it stays softer towards the
edges. At F 16 it
only gets a bit blurred due to diffraction, but better
than other lenses. This is a problem of the APS-C sensor size, not the
lens (see comparison page). The
close focussing capablities. It is very small and extremely
lightweight, particularly for a F 2 lens. A lens which offers 1 stop
more than standard. It would be a good portrait lens on the A6000.
The M39 Paxette Mount is
the same thread as ordinary M39 (Leica), but
a different flange focal distance. Please refer to the Paxette
