More 7-Arting

…this time, in colour.

Strangely, the lens is not coincident at infinity on any of my film bodies, but there doesn’t seem to be a problem, even at f/1.4 (#7 is a bit out, but I chalk it up to motion…) Perhaps I am not shooting it far enough away;

In any case, I have performed zero adjustments from factory spec.  Also–I cannot seem to get it to flare.  It seems to “veil” slightly on occasion, but no fancy rings or patterns.

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.
