Today I was at my mother and I did my first tests with the Sun-Cosmicar 22.5-90mm f/1.5 on my Olympus E-PL5 camera. I was very curious how this lens would perform wide open. F/1.5 for a zoom lens is quite ridiculous, so my expectations were not too high. But I was pleasantly surprised by the results. The lens seems to be a pretty decent performer wide open.

What do you think? All pictures are 100% crops.

Later I will add some more test pictures.

Took some time today to make more pictures. First a vignetting test. Vignetting is most prominent when photographing close subjects at the wide end. Of course things get worse when closing the aperture.


In general, the Sun-Cosmicar produces produces nice contrasty pictures with good colors en a quite pleasant bokeh. Because of the massive front element, one best uses a hood.



A test shot at 22.5mm and f/1.5. I think the performance wide open, especially the contrast, is pretty good.

Fascinating lens! I like the way it renders.

Too bad for me that the image circle is really too small for APSC.... (at least for the price I've seen for this beauty)

For anybody who's interested: check the sales section (lens sales), this lens is for sale now. I'm downsizing so this is not the right lens for me.
