    WOW that thing is tiny!! It gives a nice image though, very sharp looking at that size. What is it like at 100% Crop??

    it isn't very sharp at wide-open but full of charme. due to hard vignetting, I crop the wide c-mount lenses in the square format and a bit of Clarity/Sharpness in LR. I have also a Schneider and Kreuznach 16mm c-mount, maybe sharper, but the kern switar is one of my favourite lenses.

    Beautiful look! The colors in #2 really show why vintage glass is worth the extra effort.
