Old lens designs,
In reply to mistermejia, 6 months ago

Coatings less good, etc. I've got several old lenses and none of them are tack sharp wide open the way new lenses like the 35 or 23 are.

For most purposes I find them sharp enough wide open, and stopped down they just get better. Since there is no alternative to lenses such as my 100 f2 then I have no choice to use them if I want to use a Fuji camera

Old lenses can also have qualities that can't be replicated, I happen to like that for some shots, but of course YMMV.

It has nothing to do with adapters
