Will it Blend, Take 2 – 28mm

I don’t normally consider myself a “wide” guy…but I’ve long felt I’ve been missing out on 28mm.

Previous (brief) attempts at 21 and 25mm have yielded mixed results, and I just haven’t bonded with the lenses in question.

When the 7Artisans 28mm was announced, I tried long and hard to resist (😂) arguing that it really wasn’t that much different than 35mm; but you know me…I eventually gave in.

I have to say–so far I am certainly glad I did!  This lens (the now-discontinued “flare” version) was purchased from Hamish Gill over at 35mmc.com–I highly recommend him for his shipping and contact.

These were shot on Kodak BW400CN at ISO 400, and developed in C-41 chemistry.  They are all taken between f/1.4 and f/2.

      Congratulations also on your recent “Leica Takeover” on Instagram…inspiring images!

      Best regards,

      Yeah, I certainly wouldn’t call it discreet—about as big as the 75 Summicron or Summarit. That being said, the viewfinder blockage is not nearly as bad as I had imagined.

    Ughhhhhh, I sooo want this lens for no other reason than the second to last as an example. Seems like a perfect lens for environmental portraits. All the examples I’ve seen seem like a winner, nothing different here either!

    Like everyone else, I like them all…but those first two (esp #1) of the girls are just fabulous.
