Jaap, Thanks so much, great demonstration of the capabilities of this lens. Looks like a must have.
You know I used to have it in the film days and remember making some 24"prints. I remember they look good. Just that digital have different demands.
But as I see here it behaves very good, provably the little soft in the edges is due to focus curvature as all wide angle this wide usually have, meaning that if the wall was a bit curved toward the camera, you provably get a thoroughly sharp image.
Thanks again.

Antonio,

You are welcome, it was kind of fun to do a little testing of my own.
I really love these classic lenses, and there are some beauties out there. I have f-mount converted C/Y Sonnars 135mm and 85mm and a Leica R Summicron f2 35mm and a few chipped AIS Nikkors.
One thing I forgot to mention is that the AIS Nikkors are automatic lenses, so you have wide open metering and f stop setting from camera, C/Y Zeiss and Leica R lenses will only allow metering stopped down.
