Thanks to the high generosity of Andy (f16sunshine) I am trying out the CV 21/4 Color Skopar and the CV 25/4 Snapshot Skopar. Both are real jewels, and I am surprised at the compact size and excellent workmanship. Both have the same characteristic of smoothness of focus and tactility of the aperture clicks. I am also enamored with the VERY nice little focus "handles" on these lenses.

The viewfinder I'm using is the 25, and it is obviously well-coated and bright as a silver dollar.

I plan to take these, along with my own 90/3.5, to the rainforest and wilderness beaches soon. I'll give a full report of real-world use.

I'm looking forward to using these fine lenses. Thanks again to Andy. Cool

Excellent, Andy!

We are all living in he same neighborhood in this internet age.
Thank to the USPS for making it so easy to "stretch" our doorsteps closer together cup of sugar style. Wink
For less money than gasoline to get across town we can have such exchanges.
I'm really looking forward to your shots Larry.
I think the 21 and 25 are perfect for your shoots.
Surely both of these gems will never be in such fine company as they are while you use them Very Happy
