ECX Lens VS TLX Lens

Discussion in 'Minox' started by kingson__|1, Nov 20, 1999.

  1. Dear Friends:
    Is the ECX Lens better and more advanced than the TLX Lens?
     
  2. Kingson, The ECX Minar 15mm/f3.5 lens is newer than the Minox 15mm/3.5 lens on TLX.
    However, the ECX is fixed focus at 2M; hence only for object at 2M ( 6 feet) one may be able to see the difference for 25x (8x10") or higher enlargement. <p> There is rumor that Minox has put the Minar lens also on TLX.
     
  3. As far as I know, the lenses are quit different
    and cannot be compared directly, because

    <p>

    -the TLX-lens is a f15mm/3.5 lens with variable focus
    -the ECX-lens is a fixfocus f15mm/5.6

    <p>

    Thus, if you focus correctly, the TLX lens will be sharper
    in many situations. But if you do not have the time to focus,
    the ECX will have a greater chance for a suitable sharpness.
