    C/VHeliar 50mm f/3.5 rangefinder lens

    Does anybody have any experience with this lens on the Nikon (or other) rangefinder cameras? It is highly rated for sharpness by Pop Photo, but do people like the pictures they get with it?
    Thanks,
    LJ

    I've not had experience of that particular lens, but I do own 15mm, 21mm and 28mm CVs that I use on a Leica. I think they are great lenses. I don't think that you would be disappointed. The CV lenses are terrific value for money IMHO.

    Yes, I've tried it on the NHS special edition. Well impressed. My wife Frances Schultz liked it even better.

    Cheers,
