I like the three first pictures, the third is really nice.

I love that lens too. I don't know what makes you write it has no character, though. I find it has as much character as the Minolta 24mm f2.8 (although slightly different colours).


After your recommendation and sample shots, I researched the lens quite a bit through google searches and I got the impression that it was rather neutral in colour rendition. It is seems well-renowned for it's sharpness but not for character. These opinions are always subjective, so tried exploring the lens' capabilities to see for myself. Still seems pretty sharp at f/2.8, but does it have a distinctive character? Up to the viewer I suppose!

I don't have any experience of the Minolta 24mm so can't compare.

Glad you like a few of the shots
