Shot using the 24-megapixel Sony A7 using the Novoflex lens adapter with ASTAT tripod collar.

The 25/2.8 Distagon is a favorite of your author over years of use. The only real criticisms are a rearward field curvature to the corners (though that is preferable to wave-type or forward curvature), and some lateral chromatic aberration (easily corrected if desired, but usually not necessary).
