Default Carl Zeiss Jena 35mm f/2.4 Flektogon

A very sharp little lens. I need more time to fully explore this one.

That is another sharp lens! That first one is especially nice, though they looked a little underexposed to me. Was that a choice on your part? The color is very, very nice, I can see where the lenses get their reputation.

I've got to get my monitor set Harriet. They look good on my monitor but everyone says they are under exposed when I post them. I need to spend money on calibration software and not lenses for a while?! They are sharp lenses. The 50mm f 1.8 Pancolar next! LOL

And so do I. Manual focusing is not a problem if the trade off is better IQ.

I calibrate my monitor before I edit my photos using this page :

http://www.photofriday.com/calibrate.php

It works well

I also wonder how this 35mm f/2.4 lens compares to Pentax DA 35mm f/2.4 lens ?
