Six excellent lenses are missing IMHO:

- Nikkor-N.C 2.8/24
- Vivitar 2.0/28
- Olympus Zuiko 3.5/28
- Nikkor-O 2.0/35
- MIR-1B 2.8/37
- Ashai Takumar 3.5/35

And isn't the "Olympus OM 24mm f2" listed twice?

Does anyone have any experience of any of the "Russian" twenties - MIR 47N (2.5/20), MIR 73N (Arsat 2.8/20) and MIR 20M (3.5/20) ?

Maybe Tamron SP AD2 3.5/17, Arsat 3.5/30?

Now, the "Nikon Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 AIS" is listed twice. Sorry. Wink

@LucisPictor,

ironically i have the pentax 35/3.5 and the mir-1b 37/2.8

due to your post i decided to try them out (and discovered that the pentax won't focus at infinity.. but i managed to fix it in about half an hour)

the funny thing is the mir.. i've had it for ages and never used it, but surprisingly i like its rendition more than the pentax super-takumar and it's also better than my pentax 16-45/4 ED AL which is a middle-class AF zoom.

the mir is tremendously vulnerable to flare, however.. i put a pentax hood on the front and it looks surprisingly good! almost like a small Canon 17-40/4L


Very Happy

That's true. The MIR-1B is a great lens if used with a hood. Very Happy

Ive got only 3 wide angle lenses:

CZ Distagon 2.8/28 MM Japan
CZ Distagon 4/18 MM Japan
CZ Distagon 4/18 Germany - I don't know if this is MM or AE - with 'Pruf Zertifikat' and warranty (out of date, of course:) and box...

Good taste ...

Grad to see you picked "CZ Planar T* 35/2" for G-series cameras, people may not rate this lens highly but I like it a lot. Yes it is a bit soft at wide open with lovely grow (some hate it), however after f4 it becomes very sharp and has a punch more than G-Planar 45/2. Also this is my personal taste that this lens is a rare wide angle Planar! See a grow with G1 at f2 (ie. wide open, I remember this is the first shot for this lens wit Fuji Reala)



(I used to live in this neighbourhood, now in a down-town condo. mmm)
