  1. Hello!
    Here there are some of the pictures taken with Flektogon 20mm 2.8 on Canon EOS 50e with a chip adaptor with focus confirmation.Scanned on Noritsu KOKI .The results of the focus confirmation are somehhat mixed , I can't have a strong clear conclusion .I think I have to habituate myself with it.

    Because I am testing this lens , I shot a roll with the lens monted on Minolta X-700 , I'll post the results.
     
  2. Is the Flektogon in M42 mount? Has anyone compared this lens to the 20/3.8 Vivitar Fixed Mount, the Vivitar or Soligor 21/3.8 T4 or the 21/4 Konica Hexanon? From the outside the designs look similar.
     
  3. My sample is a M42 mount. I use it with a focus confirm adapter wich allows me a maximum 7.1 aperture stop down on Canon Eos. If I try to stop down more , the camera doesn't work.

  5. I'm envious of your Flektogon :)
    I have personally had very bad luck with focus-confirmation chips on adapters, and have found it better and safer to simply trust your own eyes.
    Really nice pictures.
     
  6. Hi, JDM !
    Thank you for the feed-back !
    I think you are right . This adapter I used doesn't please me either.It is quite interesting because they say it can be programmed , even for corecting front/back focus problems .In the field ...mmmm I am not totally satisfied , this is why I moved the lens on the X-700 with aM42 to MD adapter, and waiting to see what happens .I shot a roll , didn't sent it to the lab yet.
    Maybe (even if I wear glasses) disabling the AF of the EOS 50e and shooting only on scale could be a better option(I could use f 11 ,f16 with the AF disabled - that adaptor permits programming manual focus ,as if the lens would have a selector MF/AF like the EOS lenses).
    Of course a manual focus screen could be a solution but I don't know how to mount it.
    But here is a sample taken with the same lens on X-700 this spring.
