Re: Any 28mm f/2 lens recommendation?


I tried the Olympus 28/2 but probably was a bad piece.

So went to try the FD 28/2 and also probably got a bad piece off ebay, too.

Then managed to attain the MD 28/2 which I loved very much. I still really do,

but the Ultron 28/1.9 (the true, expensive, aspherical, heavy metal in glass type, not the modern 28/2) did it for me.

The pictures wide open are a bit contrastier and sharper then the Rokkor, so I am now selling the Rokkor.

I think that compared to some possible pigs, you can get with the really old and overpriced legacy glass, the Ultron was the best choice...

I paid 200 EUR for the Rokkor, which wasn't bad, but the Ultron for 300 is IMO better, so I am keeping that one.

Sincerely, I love the real, old legacy glass, but with some very much wanted pieces, like the Zuiko 28/2, canon 35/2, the supply is very limited, prices are bad, and the quality even worse, because, the really good ones are kept, and the bad ones are traded...

So it is always a matter of trying and having luck.
