Hi, you all know that I had a problem with an exakta mount flektogon. You also know that i came to overcome the problem so, now, i'll be displaying some pictures concerning the lens performance.

I'm doing this because:

1st - i know you folks like to have actual proof of a lens performance
2nd - because i might be having problems with sharpness in landscape shots.

This first shot was at f/5.6 (more will come in the folllowing days).

This shot did not suffer anykind of editing except resizing and the Canon PS.

After some research and realized that old wide angle lens, tend to produce soft corners. Sadly i started to learn this by experience.

However they do present excellent macro properties. Due to the superb center sharpeness, you can produce vivid images. Here's an example of the flektogon. This image is an 100% crop to the center. No editing done.
