My "Only" Trinity of lenses
In reply to bparanoid, Mar 6, 2013

These are my only Trinity of lenses.

1. Sony CZ 24mm f1.8

This lens is pure quality. Sharp from wide open. Build quality is good and the focus ring is well dampened. It would be perfect if we could adjust the sensitivity of the focus ring turn. I think the highest achievable IQ in a mirrorless system is with this lens + a Nex 7.

2. Cosina Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f1.1

This lens, unlike the 24mm, is NOT sharp from wide open. But you don't use this lens for sharpness. You use it to shoot wide open or pretty close.

3. Pentax Takumar 55mm f1.8 M42

I have a soft spot for Pentax. Their primes are quality, especially the FA limited series. But this is what I have left of Pentax.
