Pros: Lively yield, low distortion.

Cons: I can't find any.

Opinion: Never loved the 28 mm as a focal length. This lens made me change my mind. I use it on the Leica R4/R6 and I find it really exciting: contrasted and with very reasonable distortion for the focal length. Vivid and natural colors. Excellent construction. I can not make too technical considerations, I have not had the opportunity to do even too many tests, I have only taken photographs for the pleasure of making them and it came naturally to me to use both this lens and with other equivalents of other brands it has never happened to me and in some cases I have replaced with a 20 or a 35 mm.

Pros: shade in general and in particular embodied, build quality, value hold, lightness

Cons: Can be used on Nikon bodies only in stop down; diameter filters, but it can become an advantage.

Opinion: Original lens modified, reversibly, with F graft; in these cases you work in stop down, which is a constraint for the street but does not create problems for landscapes, main field of use; between 5.6 and 8 give the maximum and it is easy to shoot in hyperfocal; Pleasant vignette but still easy to eliminate at maximum opening. 48mm filters, which require the use of a step up and the ability to use 52 filters (of which the old nikonista usually has ample availability; especially those to shoot directly in black). Often used, with satisfaction, on the D850 as an alternative to Sigma art 35, the latter sharper but with less pleasant and real shades for my taste. Also tried on Z6, with FTZ, as an alternative to the 24/79 f4 zoom, where for my taste, the corresponding focal is preferred. That's why I decided to sell it and switch to the Leica M model, even lighter and usable on the Z more easily. Recommended for those who are looking for unique shades and, for me now more and more important, want to reduce weights or carry more equipment for the same weight overall.

Pros: Aesthetically pleasing lens with its conical-shaped hood, Leica mechanic, excellent optical quality but all to be studied, particularly pictorial and creative effects

Cons: Vignette visible to open diaphragms, focal aberration "spherical"

Opinion: It is a definitely dated lens (mine is from the early seventies of last century) but it can give you great satisfaction. I've been able to mount it on Nikon with the adapter ring that allows for endless focus (I tried both the Fotodiox and the Leitax, both valid but with a run end that goes beyond infinity, but that's not a problem Essential) and of course you have to focus manually. The yield is exceptional for the quality of the colors the environmental sensation it makes. The open diaphragms are noticeable for vignetting (post-production eliminable) that is not only visible from f8 onwards. Another problem is the focal aberration that the low diaphragms blur the parts not in the center of the image as if the lens was to focus not a plan but a curved bottom. It is not particularly noticeable, but it is a defect that the full frame is noticeable, however, that it can be used in its favor if, at the sides of the frame,39 there are some of the closest parts that remain astonishingly in focus (see the photograph of the gate below). It is therefore a lens with merits and defects, which can be greatly appreciated if you learn to know it. I'm glad I bought it (350 euros plus 50 or 100 euros the adapter ring).
