    I got this lens in the mail this morning while at work. Good thing I got to it first, my coworker was gona hide it from me. I hope to have pics by it in the next day or two. Looks really nice on my Canon P, will be a good complement to my Jupiter-3 35mm f/2.8 and Canon 50mm f/1.8.

    Great little lens, isn't it?

    I bought one a year or so ago, and a Bessa-L to attach it to. And then a 39mm Heliopan IR695 filter, and a few rolls of Rollei IR film - a wonderful combination.

    The "Pipes" picture in my Gallery was shot with the 21mm, but on Efke KB25. :smile:

    We're right across the street from wolfgangs (next to Eastown Antiques).

    Not sure exactly what you'd be looking for, in terms of good locations.

    Oh here's some color shots from yesterday. Don't expect anything too serious from me until maybe after the holidays.

    One of the 'new' Portras I got from kodak during the free promotion (Portra 400NC), shot on my Canon P. For the sake of boredom, I'll title some of them. One of the things I like about this lens is how close I can get to something and still take a good coverage. Also how I can 'manipulate' the size of object by tilting the horizon of the perspective (like I did minorly in the 'looking' mirror photo).

    Again nothing too special I just wanted to share.

    While still standing in the window, I took a shot of the store thru the opening

    Sometimes I'd rather be...(this one is in my Apug Gallery)

    Karl,

    This is a damned great lens you got!

    I have a couple of CV's (including a 28 but not a 24) in S-mount. I use them with both my R2S and Nikon S2 and SP.

    The "...Rather Be...." shot really says it all.

    Thanks and enjoy.
