I picked up the Zeiss 25mm f2.8 Distagon T* lens in M42 mount for use on my Sony A7II digital camera and my Bessaflex TM film camera. After a couple of outings with this lens I am completely enamored with it. The lens is simply brilliant! So, let's look at some photos.
The Kanagawa Prefecture History Museum - a good test for architectural capabilities of the semi-wide angle lens
Likewise the Yokohama Customs House.
As usual Nicky and Nicole are willing to pose for a picture.
Another shot of the Yokohama Customs House.
I'm really enjoying the perspective that the 25mm provides.
Venturing out on the Yokohama International Passengers Terminal.
It's a beautiful day for a photography walk-about.
The Minato-Mirai skyline.
I bought this lens out of curiosity; who knew it would be so much fun to use.
The Royal Wing Dinner Cruise Ship pulling away from the pier.
Shuffling through Yamashita Park.
I call this "View From A Park bench"
An aerial shot of Motomachi
Now we tackle the crowd scene of China Town.
For a manual focus lens this is quite easy and fast to nail the picture.
The white specks in the sidewalk are pieces of broken pottery.
Point, shoot, and keep moving.
Always a crown here in China Town.
Saying goodbye to China Town for now.
There is no escaping the Colonel.
A quick excursion through the Noge district.
It's been said that the 35mm lens is best for street photography... I guess the people saying that have never used a 25mm lens.
Kind of a cliche shot but what the heck.
More open spaces in front of the Yokohama Museum of Art.
The mighty Nippon Maru!
A final shot of the Minato-Mirai district.
Thanks for stopping by!
