    Leica Apo Telyt 280 F4 image circle

    Hi, did anyone test the rare Leica R 280 Apo Telyt F4 on a Alpa FPS or Hartblei Camera with a IQ 180 or similar? Does it fill the full frame or are there dark corners?

    Thanks for your help

    I tested a Mamiya RZ350f5.6 Apo via a RZ67 - EF adapter on the Alpa FPS. For such long focal lengths, the (small) EF mount vignettes. A Leica R 180f2.8 Apo is no problem, the lens has sufficient image circle and corner sharpness for a IQ180, the EF mount does not cut the corners. I would expect that the EF mount would also cut the edges of the R 280f4 Apo.
