    19 Elmarit R vs. 21 Elmarit M Asph - distortion

    I have started a comparison test between the 19 Elmarit R and 21 Elmarit M Asph lenses. My first round was marred by focus problems, but one thing that was clear is that the 19 R has a lot more barrel distortion than the 21 M.

    I'm very curious how these lenses would compare in a full-frame capture, but, alas, I'm not going to shoot a few rolls of flim to find out.

    Which version of the 19mm Elmarit-R is this?

    I have the latest version of the 19 R. It had a tune-up in Solms earlier this year.

    Thatís interesting but sounds a little odd to me the 19 Elmarit-R (second version) isnít a lens that Iíd particularly associate with overly noticeable barrel distortion even when used close up. At least not when used as recommended on an R camera.
