I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I have recently bought an X-T1 and as I would like to get more into street photography, I am looking for a suitable 35mm equivalent lens.
I already have the Lens Turbo Mk.II focal reducer, so one of the options I am considering is the Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm 2.4. From what I can read online it's supposed to be a great old lens, but I am having second thoughts, as it can get relatively expensive for an older manual lens, so much so that it is possible to get a used XF 27mm for almost the same money.
I was wondering if anyone had any experience with using the Flektogon on a lens turbo adapter? My worry is that the distance / f-stop scale on the lens will not be the right one anymore, as is usually the case with a focal reducer. As I plan to use this lens mostly for street photography and zone focus, which might be much harder if this is the case, so perhaps a pre-focused XF 27 might actually be easier to use, plus its small size and portability is definitely a big plus? On the other hand, it would be a bit narrower, but I am not sure if that would be noticable at all (40mm vs approx 38mm).
I'd be glad to hear any experiences with a similar choice or with those specific lenses, or any other advice in regards to their usefulness to help with my decision.
Thanks in advance!
