Trying out the Voigtländer Color Skopar 21mm

I was out today playing with this nice little lens on my X-E2. The ability to now have red or blue focus peaking makes focusing a breeze.  This 21mm F4 pancake is apparently good for Landscape stuff and on the X-E2 it’s coming close to a classic 35mm field of view.  Even at F4 (this was shot wide open) the background blur is quite pleasant.

I guess with practice focusing will be a bit quicker.  This will be appreciated by anybody who happens to be walking with me (my 3 year old daughter for example).

I’m just waiting for an adapter to arrive that will allow me to try out a Minolta 55mm F1,7 that I found at a fair price on ebay.  In the meantime I’ll just keep practising with this little Voigtländer which by the way, I think it looks really great on the camera 🙂

    That’s one of my favorite lenses on Sony NEX 5N. It also performs beautifully on its original platform, which is Leica CL in my case.

    Great shot by the way!
