Pros: Small, easy to handle, no distortion, beautiful colors, Zeiss T * contrast. Great on Sony A7 24mpff

Cons: Resolution not very high, but more than enough for prints 30/45 or monitor 2560x1440px

Bought used, but in good condition, for a fraction of what costs the current 18. Used a lot for indoor architecture photos. Always traveling with me. Hard to find. Who has it if he holds it! Small, easy to handle, no distortion, beautiful colors, Zeiss T * contrast. Excellent on Sony A7 24mpff, not very high resolution, but more than enough for prints 30/45 cm or monitor 2560x1440 px

Pros: Size and weight, typical Zeiss building, colors, great correzine distortion

Cons: weak microcontrast

He had for years of analog Contax, very interesting on the negative, already paid on the slide little micro-contrast, with acceptable images at very small apertures. We are talking about a very thorough with wide-angle focal scheme designed in the late 60's, it has vast physical limits to beat. impressive achievement by then technically and fundamentally usable plan. The virtual absence of distortion is still interesting. color rendering of all respect. If one has it, well for him. If one wants to buy, it is right to know that the weakness of the micro-contrast, current sensors, will be very obvious, and from this point of view even a 17-40 canon is superior VERY. If not for collectors use, it is preferable grandchild currently in the catalog.

Pros: Distortion entirely absent, excellent color rendering, high-contrast images with excellent overall balance.

Cons: Vignetting up to F5.6 microcontrast not great, lightweight AC up to 5.6 F

Hundred degrees always open to dsposizione in a compact, lightweight lens. great in interior shooting, architecture and situations where it is essential to embrace a wider angle. The design is not very modern, but I realized that using the field offers a lot of satisfaction that I did not expect seeing the test published by various riviste.rnrnCome wrote the main flaw is a certain weakness in the micro-contrast, but with an angle of field so wide the defect is related, in any case, the great macrocontrasto makes very brilliant images and excellent color rendering does the resto.rnrnAdattabile with some difficulty to the body Canon (I had to shave all linkages lens referral , the ring protruding beyond the rear lens and eventually I had to shave lightly the mirror of my Canon 5D, but a couple of hours of work are nothing compared to the satisfaction of using I lost shots quest'ottica.rnrnQuante times (all 'interior of palaces, museums-provided you have the autorizzazione- archaeological excavations) because the 78 degrees I had available were too few .... rnrnL'ottimo overall contrast also helps in perspective corrections, when due to inability to move away from wanting sogggetto resume in full you are forced to accept the falling lines, is a goal so pleasant to use that finsico ePR hold them on my Canon throughout the giorno.rnrnNon is faultless, but the advantages far outweigh any limitazione..rnrnReperibile on the second hand market on the 400 Euro I thoroughly recommend it ..... RNPs I recently got to try for a few hours the new Distagon 18mm F3.5, more nitiezza, more micro-contrast, color rendering belissima, but an unbearable distortion that forces ARCHITECTURE fOR EVERY TRIP OR INTERIOR to corrections PP, rnrnrnrnrnrn
