So I decided I wanted a 24mm shift lens for my new Leica M and found a mint-ish Olympus OM 24mm shift lens and pulled the pin.
Mounted to a Novoflex adapter on the M, the lens was a huge disappointment. Comparing it to a 21mm Super Elmar, the lens doesn't look 'leica-sharp' at any aperture and chromatic aberation is very pronounced. And this was without any shift on the lens.
The Olympus shift gets very good reviews. Am I expecting too much (I admit I'm pixel peeping the results)?. Do I give up and forget the shift idea, or should I try to find a better copy? This one is going back. No point keeping a lens when I know the Leica SE results are so much better.
Any thoughts appreciated.
