Getting there. Everything handheld.

Version II at f/11, focus at 1m. Touch shot purposely against the sun.

Version I at ..f/22, focus at 1m. A bit of unfair comparison, need to pay more attention next time. But gives you an idea. Watch the flare..

Corner crop of a larger shot. Version II. F/11, focus at 0.3m.

Version I. F/11, focus at 0.3m. Not as clear as above.

By the way, I just started a new Flickr group for the new version here

Fuji XE-2, Canon FD 300 4L, Fuji 55-200, Fuji 56 1.2, Fuji 27 2.8, Fuji 23 1.4, Fuji 14 2.8, Rokinon II 8 2.8


Impressively better with better flare control but more significantly, better microcontrast in the version II samples.

Thank you.
