Been thinking about the DA 21... then I realized I had not used the Tokina 24 2.8 in my K-3 yet, to see how it handles that sensor.

Holy moley. It takes that sensor for a spin and handles it with ease. Pixel sharp.

In the first picture, its link should allow one to pixel peep. You can see the pine needles. I don't think I've seen DA 21 pictures being this sharp (sharpening in camera set to -4, the lowest value meaning no sharpening at all, and no sharpening in RawTherapee!). I had to clean up a bit of noise in the sky, because I took it in ISO 800 by mistake... and I applied a film profile (Ektachrome 100 Generic, in RawTherapee). That was it.



This one is wide open at f/2.8... I can see a lot of detail when pixel peeping, but I didn't upload the full resolution. Long story but the sites that upload full res for free, post the landscape images in either full or small size on the web...

Eyemik 28mm f2.8 on Sony A7ii (full-frame mode).

I have an oddball lens called an Eyemik 28mm f2.8. Some Eyemik's are labelled Eyemik Quantaray (including a multi-coated 28mm f2.8 with same filter size). One website states that it was manufactured by Mitake. I think the Eyemik brand is only M42 mount and the later Eyemik-Quantaray was released in several bayonet mounts (PK, OM).

With 58mm diameter front and glass right to the front, it is not a scenery lens but seems to do OK with closeups (colours are a bit flat and need some tweaking). I have a shot here showing it side by side with two superstar 28mm lenses, the Pentax M 28mm f3.5 and the Olympus OM 28mm f3.5, taken with an Industar 50-2.
Here are a few shots taken on the Sony A7ii fullframe, just to show how it does OK when the sun is well away from the front element.
