Voigtlander 25mm Color Skopar Lens - Fun, fun, fun!

The little lens that could! The Voigtlander 25mm f4 Color Skopar Pancake lens is tiny in comparison to today's digital SLR lenses but it has the heart of a lion. I put this tiny tot on my Sony A7II and went for a walk; good things happened.

I started out in Yokohama's Rinko Park. If you're looking for a place to go to enjoy a box lunch and some hot green tea, this is the place.

Being a 25mm lens it's kind of in-between being a wide and an ultra-wide angle lens.

Since it's a manual focus old school lens hyperfocal distance focusing is a piece of cake.

Man! It is a beautiful day!

One of these days I'm going to ride the wheel.

Sharp, sharp, sharp... this lens is good!

 You want gaudy, we got gaudy

Get me to the church on time!

This must be the church

I do!

Wahoo! Looks like they're happy

Back to the 25mm pankake lens

f8 and be there. You've heard it before and this is what it's all about.

I want to ride my bicycle

Play ball! or walk the dog. It's all good.

It is so nice to be out and about on such a nice day.

Welcome to the underground. A person can walk several city blocks down here in the corridors of the subway station.

But, who wants to be underground when there is so much to see above ground.

25mm is the way to go - we call this the wide and tight look.

A lot of people out on bicycles today.

Last shot of the day... Walk don't Run, unless you're caught out in the middle of the intersection when the light turns green

Thanks for stopping by!
