50mm cron on x-pro1.

i have been waiting days to get out with the 1968 cron i bought from denmark. but as usual, the weather has been dull & grey. the cron is fitted to my xp1, so i want to see what the pairing does while i wait for my 35mm fuji lens to arrive. i would think that it will be a fight off between these two lenses for a semi permanent position on the xp1.

i will do some comparisons when the 35mm arrives, even though they are different focal length.

because there isnt that much to shoot at this time of year around here, i may do a 3 lens 50mm shoot out, just to keep me off the streets and getting into trouble.

so coming up in the not too distant future, the great shoot off between the jupiter 8, the takumar 55mm f1.8 and the 50mm cron. cost £18, £25 & £220.

this is all i have been able to snatch with the cron on the xp1 while we were in town yesterday with all the other christmas shoppers, but the best thing i found with using the cron yesterday was the chance to try real manual focusing again, thank god for focus peaking.

these are all jpegs with a touch of sharpenning and some cropping.
