Yes, I like the Steinheil company and their lenses since many years. So I was happy to find a cine lens
labeled QUINON (since I know it is a good ans sharp lens for 35mm format).

Since all of a sudden today the sun came out on a winter day, I grabbed my GH1 and the 25mm Quinon. J
ust one for now, more later...

Vignetting, distortion, sharpness test. Former Witchtower, ca 15m away.
Original shots, just resized.

f1.5:


f2.8:


f5.6:


f11:


f22:


Note some barrel distortion and disappearing vignetting, much increasing sharpness/contrast from f2.8 onwards. Sweet spot around f4-f5.6 IMHO.

Wide open I have to try some portrait shots...(note the "glow")
