Pentax Q7, Fujinon 9mm 1.4

This was my very first lens on Q system. I've bought the Q7 "body only".
I have several c mount, but none of them under 25mm.
I was in need of a standard lens and as I love c mount Fujinon, my aim was to get this 9mm f1.4 .
I was not sure if it was ok on Q7, but I got it for "cheap".

The first try was a hudge disappointment... the rear screen of Q series is so bad, that manuel focus only offers a range from more blur, to less blur, but blur
I thought I got a lemon.
Then, I saw the pictures on the PC...
Sharpness everywhere! (unless I missed).
Actually, manual focusing is working for close focus shots.
For infinity or so, you have to guess, with the help of an enormous DOF nonetheless.
Heavy distorsion : It's difficult to keep any line straight.

No more words, pictures:
=> minimum pp, zero sharpening on 100% crops.
