This week I’m using the G1 with the Carl Zeiss Biogon 21mm f/2.8 lens.  I’ve used this lens off and on since I purchased the Rayqual adaptor in Osaka about a month ago.  The image’s resolution off center is not quite as good as I would expect, given the excellent performance of this lens on my Leica M8.    Also, focusing at infinity in the viewfinder is slightly off in that the image is not in perfect focus in the viewfinder.  Again this is in contrast to the M8’s ability to focus at infinity.

Check out my previous posting where I discuss (and link) the off-center resolution issue that the G1 has with some wide-angle lenses.
