A7, Vivitar 20mm f3.8

Picked this up off of eBay the other day, in great shape cosmetically and mechanically.  Pretty fun lens due to the super close focusing distance.  Not the sharpest (so far anyway, haven't been able to test under ideal circumstances), but pleasant enough to the eye in my opinion.  I probably overpaid, but not by so much that I regret the purchase.  Kind of a unique fun lens that opens up some creative options.

Huge front element.

No editing, you can get a sense of the distortion and what not.

Can get a little 3D pop under the right circumstances

No shade, you can tell where the sun is coming from, still kind of cool looking.
