    Hi, I bought this lens a few days ago from a local seller, but through EBay.
    This is a VERY RARE lens, made in Germany by the successor of the former Kilfitt company.

    You can see the lens mounted on the GH2 here :

    Pretty nice. How's the chromatic aberrations and purple fringing?

    As you can see in the pics, there is some !
    Hurts the eye when the lens is used fully open, but gets better with stopping down.
    CA is inherent in this kind of lenses, and does not disturb much.
    I could also correct it in LR, but I did not do so for these pics.

    Thanks. It's quite obvious in #4, but that's a fairly challenging scenario. I find that going with a warmer white-balance helps to tone down the purple fringing.

    I'm slowly getting used to this lens.
    One needs to stop down to f11 or even f16 to have optimum image quality.

    Here's yet a few samples :

    More to come, for sure !
