Flektogon is in a fixed position as a wide angle of an old monofocal lens. As 35 mm quasi wide angle is affordable and well-known, it gets a lot of fun, so I want to take another step and I tried challenging the wide angle of 20mm Flektogon though it’s a little expensive as an old lens.

Lens and manufacturer introduction

Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 20mm / F 4.0

The famous wide-angle Flektogon of Carl Zeiss Jena in the east of Carl Zeiss, which was divided into east and west in the world match.
Although the east and west are integrated and the wide angle lens seems to have become only Distagon of the west side, Flektogon also appears well enough and I think that it is a very valuable lens as a wide angle that properly reflects the texture of the old while looking properly.

Today’s New Year’s New

· How stable a wide angle can be shown by 20mm of Flektogon? I want you to take a good price because it was a good price (urgent)
· Keep a record of Shibuya station full of construction

Bokeh taste, depiction of the periphery of the frame, depiction of the line, coloration

I think that it is not a lens to enjoy blur taste, so I would like to write about the characteristics of blur, sharpness, lens in the time series talking a little bit this time as I always change the flow of talking.

Perth is very beautiful impression.
I think that the distortion which is problematic in wide angle is suppressed by the good neighborhood.

But what is it, this lens, it is difficult to focus on opening up!
I intended to pin the pin in my basket, but it’s not at all.

Well, it is a wide angle that is wide and far away, so it will be hard for you to pin the pin away, but this far.

If these pictures are in focus about the focus position, there is no problem, but it is a bit reckless to take something small and distance away with release.

It was an image that the children are playing at the boundary between the sky and the ground, but it is far away!
People can not see small!
I am confused by the depiction of 20mm honestly a bit.

Person who controls wide angle, restrict camera
I have heard of it being like, but the town taking 20mm is certainly difficult.

I tried close – up shooting with plums that caught my eyes while holding astray.
Since the shortest shooting distance is quite close, plum at the side.

I feel Flektogon 20mm for what purpose.
Although it thinks that it is slightly 2 line blur with a good shot for reference of blur taste, it is good feeling without feeling noisy.

I tried towards backlight,
Is not it as strong as 35 mm Fretagon? I am slightly blurred

Oh If you can take this much, it’s like having a meaning of wide angle.
It is a little satisfying.
Incorporating various elements, it seems that the feeling of space in the sky and the flowers of the trees that are showing the face can be well balanced.

I got lost again when I was feeling well.
I wanted to have the colorful dress inside the store as the theme, but I gave up this composition with a thoughtful reflection.
But, if you look at PC development, it’s a good feeling. . .
If you notice it on the spot and you can not brush more, it will not work as a photographer. . .

With light open short distance.
I do not feel that composition and texture are bad.

Although it was overexposure, with a feeling that it is possible to be established at the foot atmosphere and stairs.
I felt I got along well with Flektogon 20mm a little from this neighborhood.

Although it may be a bit far away, it is something that squeezes around the light intensity in the vicinity, because it is somehow established in red in uniformity.

Oh! You see the color.
It looks like Flektogon 35 mm way of coloring and white jumping. Good vibes.

“Ah, I see, sunlight is strong today,” I noticed in this neighborhood.
I feel that the characteristics of this lens are well understood by the light of the shoulder which diffused by the reflection of the building and the flower hit by the sun lightly.

Old film-like texture, not strong in sunlight like the modern lens, the strong color and contrast of Flektogon waiting in the two are beautifully mixed.
I thought that the lens should be taken based on that neighborhood.

Although it seems that it can be said to any old lens, this Flektogon has a lot of joy when I was able to take a good picture, as the difference in normal times is fierce when I am hooked.

If this sense of stability is taken at wide angle, it may be usable for business use.
If you try out the interior, if the breakdown around the frame is not noticeable, it seems to be active in the case of taking a picture in the shop lightly.

Currently it is indoor shooting, Canon EF 16mm – 35mm are renting.
Zoom is effective The ease of handling is perfect for work.
That’s ok, I have never been better than Old Lens, but if you use it only occasionally, management is troublesome as well.

Actually today, I walked here to one goal.
It would be only here if taking a town with wide angle.

On the weekend more people were filled with more people, maybe more chaotic feeling could have been taken, but on the contrary it seemed disgusted by chaos and it seemed disgusting, so we post a peaceful feeling on weekdays .
The image of the TSUTAYA building is also not bad at a good timing feeling.

A group of Marykaes that had become a topic a bit passed, but this distance is impossible in this wide angle.
I wonder if Mario and Peach Princess in front of the right bus barely understand.

Wonder if it is a picture unique to wide angle.
With the letters of the sign on the upper right you can say that it is enough depiction power.
Since the white balance was auto, I was biased towards the blue side, but it fits the atmosphere, so I put it as it is.

I wanted to leave Shibuya station full of construction, so here.
I wonder if it became a good shot mixed with old and new.

The other buildings can not be taken well, but what mixed the people and took the city’s speedy things off with liberation came out.

While feeling a little relieved, the image that said it was a feeling of depression of Shibuya around 15 o’clock on weekdays.

The bus terminal in Shibuya has become completely developed town.

I took a bus and moved to Roppongi Hills

I see a color, is not it ~
Since there is no influence such as the picture style of the camera in Raw shooting, it is the color of shooting as it is.
Of course, because I am not adjusting saturation and contrast etc., it is really raw Raw.

I came pretty close to trying to hold stamens. Since the minimum shooting distance is 10 cm, this also makes it possible to come, so if you come to this neighborhood, the blur also appears to be nice.

Purchase route, repair and versatility, reference at purchase

It will be between 30,000 yen and 50,000 yen depending on the state, although it is fewer than Flektogon 35 mm, it seems that it is on the market as it is.

So this time, it is a Yahoo auction purchase after a long absence accompanied by the number of product photos, the details of product description, security sense and ease.

Although the shipping destination was Germany, there was no problem at all in Japanese explanation / correspondence.
I purchased the top class for purchasing an old lens except Leica, but I got a fairly good chassis.

Genuine front and rear cap, with genuine original box.
In this way, even if you do not need a box you can not throw it away.

When purchasing

Even so, there is also 50 mm F 4.0.
Flektogon list of eBay
I am also interested in 25mm.

I’d like to try Mir-1 20mmtoo, but if it’s M42 mount, none is a cheap price.

About Mount

I use a mount similar to this.


Canon is 35mm Flektogon and it interferes with the mirror, but this 20mm seems to be OK.

Looking back and analyzing the pictures that I thought was able to be successful

Although Akabe has been blown off, I thought that this would be okay.
You can take a look at the atmosphere and the shoes that become the subject have a bright sense of old feeling. Because it is established.

It was a bit of a memorial memorial that I thought it would be okay not to throw away the ISO, although the ISO did not match at all.

Comparison of aperture and shutter speed

Aperture F 2.0, shutter speed 1/1000

With a picture like a wide angle.
The way of appearance of the contrast may be good feeling that opening with a peripheral light amount falls good, but it may be good to tinker down with Photoshop etc.
Even if it is better to squeeze the protruding branches around the upper right.

Aperture F 8.0, shutter speed 1/400

Directing direction of shooting, as a portrait lens

Although it seems to be able to make full use even in town shooting, if you distort this, you may also get a portrait.
It may be possible to produce unexpected and interesting effects.
I have a chance to take a picture of people soon so I would like to try it for a while.

Around where I walked

I wandered around the south exit of Shibuya station like a maze.
I think that it is interesting to take a picture of how the state of the city near the big terminal station changes.

shooting information

camera

BL6A1471
The camera is 5 D mark III, the image quality is raw uncompressed shooting, the picture style at shooting is the standard and it is used only for 5D monitor check.
Jpg will be thrown away when importing to PC.

Since development is currently in Photoshop CC 2017 and we want to leave the characteristics of the lens in the photograph, we only adjust the extent to make the brightness uniform by the exposure dose.
For comparative photographs etc., white balance may be the same.

Aperture

Although I often took it with Open F4.0 this time, as usual I still shoot it compared with F 8.0.

Shutter speed

There were good weather and it was pretty good eyes.
I wonder if it was about 1/1000 ~ 1/2000.

ISO

Because the lens of this time is also an old lens, the exposure measurement of the camera was considerably blurred according to the lens and the diaphragm and only roughly matched, so it was a feeling to match while taking.
± 0 of the exposure meter when squeezing and opening is not very reliable.

White balance

It was almost auto all the time.
Wide angle as compared to the photos on the side I feel that such a white balance is not bothered.

Afeter words

Flektogon 20mm and an article with a film camera was also added

Ultra wide angle of eye-catching big lens …

I have taken a bit of portrait
