I had a very quick, semi-rough sortie with this lens last week (we just received our demo).
I shot it against a Schneider 60mm/5.6 APO Digitar XL (a great, very sharp lens).
To my eye, the Actar 60mm did not match it, but it came close enough to impress. Considering the price difference, this lens may prove to be a worthy addition to the Actar line.
That lens will be shown at PhotoPlus in New York City this week (booth # 358). If you're around, Capture Integration will be at booth # 249, swing by and say hi.
This is likely a silly question. 25% of what I do is stitched panoramas using my A7rII + Nodal Ninja 3 and Loxia 21 or 50mm. Would I be able to use the Actus or Actus mini with my A7rII + Loxia setup? So Sony rear mount and Lens board. Had all on the Canon TSEs adapted to A7rII and never liked it. Love the look of the Actus and really miss movements. Also have the GM 24-70 which I use for my LE work and would love movements on that as well. I shoot mainly at ground level and a little rise and fall or shift is always beneficial.
What didn't you like about the TSE lenses?
Have you considered using a medium format lens with a larger image circle instead, or perhaps the Actar 24?

If anyone from Cambo is reading, I'd be really grateful to know how well the Actus works with the Leica M240 or M246? There is obviously an M mount. Which lenses in the 50mm focal length area work flawlessly at infinity with this set up? For example the 60mm Actar? How much back rise / fall would this give (my interest is architecture) and/or left-right stitching? Anything that I need to consider - like color cast etc? THANK YOU if you can help answer!
M39 enlarger lenses 60 and above should work no problem.
And of course, the Actar 60 would give you infinity focus and around 15-17mm of shift depending on your orientation.
As to not clog up the Sony thread with Leica, please feel free to email or PM me any further questions about this setup.
