I'm glad to propose up for the sale great German Carl Zeiss Jena Prakticar/Flektogon MC 2.8/20mm Ultra-Wide Angle lens with Praktica PB mount in excellent working Condition. Will fit digital cameras like Sony/Canon/Nikon etc. I can add Canon EF adapter as a bonus, just let me know if you need It! If you like wide angle lenses you will love the 20mm Flektogon. The 20mm Flektogon has the same advantages as its' little sister the Carl Zeiss Flektogon 35mm (close focusing, sharpness and a good bokeh).
It offers a much wider angle of view with 93° compared to the 62° of a 35mm lens (on full frame cameras). What really sets the 20mm Flektogon apart from other super wide angle lenses is not only the close focusing distance but also that it is a relatively sharp lens at f2.8. This makes it suitable for available light photography in most cases.
Obviously all this goodness comes at a price premium with the 20mm Flektogon being about twice as expensive as the Carl Zeiss Flektogon 35mm. The Flektogon does not only offer outstanding image quality but this lens is also remarkable due to its' extremely short focusing range of only 19cm, which is pretty amazing for such a wide angle lens.This enables you to get really close to your subjects creating almost fish-eye looking images and distorting effects. Obviously this rules out "natural looking" portraiture images if the subject is too close. When you focus to infinity, the distortion is really minimal and you do get authentic looking pictures. The lens offers a massive field of view which is especially handy for landscape and architecture photography. The colours and sharpness are really good, although in my opinion not as good as the Carl Zeiss Flektogon 35mm. Especially in the corners you do get some softness when shot wide open. If you have the opportunity to acquire one of these jewels go for it - you won't regret it!
