  • Konica 21mm f4 Hexanon black EE AR
    24mm 2 8 is my full time wide angle I purchased the 21 2 8 a year ago or so in order to compare it to the 21 4 0 I made the comparison a few months ago and decided to sell the worst performer on eBay Life isn t always fair and such was the case in this test of the two Hexanons I used Kodachrome 25 slide film and a tripod mounted FT 1 body I took shots of a busy commercial area with edge to edge and corner to corner detail from a hillside vista at wide open aperture and at F 8 0 I evaluated the finished slides with a 30X magnifier and the results were unmistakable the 21 2 8 Hexanon was noticeably sharper at the center and the 21 4 0 was noticeably sharper at the edges Either lens could be preferable for a given circumstance What to do How to choose Keep both Flip a coin Evaluate needs Build a decision matrix Arrrrrgh In the end nostalgia ruled the day I decided to keep my old 21 4 0 At 30X the center still looks pretty good when you don t make direct comparisons and like I said I don t use it a lot anyway The 21 2 8 will likely be up on eBay soon It is perfectly mint in box with hood caps and case It has been on a camera one time for two pictures Thought those of you who worry about such things would like to know as did I Now you know so go out and take some pictures FM My favourite lens is the 21mm I got it very cheaply with its original lends hood and leather case in perfect condition There s a little loss of sharpness towards the extreme corners but it s a cracking lens Bruce Robbins The Hexanon Hexanon AR 21 mm F4 is of very good optical quality and renders sharp images with high contrast Vignetting is visible with this exteme wide angle lens but is not too disturbing Distortions are corrected very well although there are pincushion distortions detectable with straight lines running parallel to the frame the extreme wide angle effect is always clearly visible however The faster successor model is said to have better sharpness but I have no own experiences with this lens Due to its huge not recessed front element the Hexanon Hexanon AR 21 mm F4 is a bit prone to flare With its huge field of view the sun is frequently lying in or just outside the image Therefore you should use the original lens hood if possible which was delivered with the lens It gives much better protection than a collapsible lens hood that gives almost no shading with the big diameter and the wide image angle The original lens hood covers those parts of the front element that are outside the image area on the film leaving open a rectangular opening The

  • Nikon Micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 AIS Lens Review
    The focal length is a mere 88 mm at the near limit To go beyond 1 2 it s necessary to add the PN 11 extension ring However the CRC system isn t working optimal when the extension is added so Nikon advises the lens be stopped down more to retain flat field correction The lens flares easily and the use of a long lens shade is recommended at all times Best image sharpness occurs at f 5 6 f 8 and the quality deteriorates very rapidly beyond f 16 this decline is common to all Micro Nikkors Bjorn Roslett Naturfotograph com There are two manual focus 105mm Micro Nikkors an f 2 8 and an f 4 0 You should consider both The 105 2 8 AIS Micro makes a good general purpose 105 and macro As for the change in focal length I estimated 92mm for the 105 2 8 Micro but the lenses has CRC and change in focal length seems complex Notice the free working distance of the 105 4 0 v 105 2 8 at 1 2 and 1 1 The 105 4 0 AI or AIS Micro Nikkor is probably the better and certainly the easier lens to use for serious close up and macro photography David H Hartman I did not like the 105mm f4 Micro Nikkors I have tried the 105mm f2 8 s seemed better to me throughout their ranges As for the 105mm MF Micro s CRC if you use the lens at 1 1 on a tube the CRC is nearly optimally set As you approach 1 2 using a tube the CRC approaches the infinity setting but the lens is still good stopped down You might want to check out my SLE MN again Finding a lens that is great from 2x with tubes converter or achromat added to infinity at wide apertures is pretty difficult The Nikkor 105mm f2 8 Micros both MF and AF come close though each has a few compromises If very close to medium distance performance and ease of use is more important to you take the AF version if moderately close to infinity work is more important take the MF version if 6 to infinity is all you require save money and take the 105mm f2 5 BTW I would consider the 105mmm Micro s to be noticeably sharper than the 105mm f2 5 at 4 5 at wide apertures though you may want the slightly reduced sharpness of the f2 5 at that distance for portraits If I have to make an order between my macro and macro purpose lenses I make this very subjective order Olympus OM Macro 50mm f3 5 Nikon Micro Nikkor 105mm f2 8 AIS Macro 1 2 Micro Nikkor 200mm f4 Kiron 105mm f2 8 Macro 1 1 Tamron SP 90mm f2 5 Macro 1 2 Nikon Micro Nikkor 55mm f3 5 Macro 1 1 Vivitar Series 1 90mm f2 5 Macro 1 2 Industar 61
