These are taken at f/16 and 3m click setting and ISO 320 RAW on a G1. Giving me 1.5m to INF in focus, according to the website www.DOFmaster.com

A little vignetting in the corners, and almost really sharp. (see 100% crops for sharpness). But plenty sharp for non-professional use.
This lens on a film RF with ISO 100 film is even better. I will post a sample at a future date... soon. Admittedly, at a lower ISO the finer edge detail will be a little better defined... But I wanted to see how it did at a higher ISO that many of will tempted to use on an f/4 lens. I think it does quite well at ISO 320 too.

More at 125 ISO

These were taken at the 3m click and f/16, except the "Bokeh" image at f/4 and 1m.

A couple of shots for this lens sadly on a very dull overcast day.

This shot was deliberately under exposed by 1 stop to increase speed and freeze the bus that was in motion.

Not brilliant conditions to show off this lens, but at least an addition to the thread, maybe more if we get any sun soon.

Note these shots have not been cropped, vignetting adjustment applied to both shots.

I recently bought this lens and wasn't expecting great things from most of the image examples i had seen, however after a few test shots i can honestly say that I'm blown away by this little jem!! It's SO sharp and the colour/contrast is superb!!

Here are just a few test shots and a pic of the lens on my Olympus E-PL2

1: Test shot at f/8

2: Skywards. Nice sharp branches.

Much better light conditions today to show what this lovely little lens is capable of.

Panasonic GF1 with Voigtlander 25mm, f/4 Snapshot Skopar.

This is an uncropped image converted from raw with a preset vignetting correction applied, although in truth there is only a small amount of vignetting with this lens.

This is a great performer on M4/3 cameras - here's one from earlier this week ...
