CZ Distagon T* 21 ZK

I didn't try it well, actually. But I think it's enough to notice its sharpness and color rendition (I don't usually PP shots taken with it much).

Ah - the holy grail of 21mm lenses. A US$1.5k manual focus lens but supposedly worth every last penny ! The sharpness and quality jumps of the page on your best shots. Have to say the colour shots look better as the B&W are over-processed I'm afraid.

BTW, the images look amazingly sharp when printed at A4 or shown at large screen (≥20"). Those little web images aren't big enough to see it.

So, I'm getting used of this focal length. It should be treated as a normal lens rather than wide angle one. Here's some shots from a walk.

These are great. I especially like the starbursts in the night shots. Sign of a quality lens.
The bokeh looks a little busy to me, however.

BTW. Russia has changed a lot since I last visited there (25 years ago), except for the trains
