  • Well, that's why I suggested Kamlan in the first place. It is relatively inexpensive and IMO better than let's say Komine or Kiron 28/2 on the crop. If we talk about other vintage lenses mentioned ...
  • I have completely different impression. If closed down a bit, it is very sharp. So, yours is probably a lemon. If not Kamlan, I would recommend Voigtländer Ultron 28mm f/2.0: https://phillipreeve.n ...
  • For Fuji I would suggest modern MF lens Kamlan 28mm f1.4. It's a great lens for little money, sharp wrom wide open. I have may be 50 vintage lenses in this FL, but if I shoot crop (Fuji) I ...

  • AFAIK Vaio laptops are produced by some HongKong based company. If you search in the internet you can find the name  which I currently do not remember. So, in fact they are generic ODM product ...
  • Konica AR 35/2 is quite a rare lens and therefore expensive and not easy to find. It is excellent though, at least my copy is one of the sharpest fast 35s that I had, though it is quite beaten up.
