Wide-angle lens for street photos
Wide-angle lens is a mountain. My goal is to find my path, not to reach the top. The 21mm lens is the widest lens I have ever used. Since it gives fewer distortions, I can photograph humans on thestreet without making them look disproportionate. It also offers a significant depth of field that enables I to shoot fast-moving objects without much focusing. With the f/4 aperture it will make taking street photos feel effortless.
Change Distance, and Change Style
Wide angle lenses can create visual and psychological effects depending on how they are used. In wide angle lens photography, the subject becomes further away. A wide lens is great for creating distance from a subject, a 21mm lens can be great in close proximity for closing up photos. Change your distance and change your photography style.
Schneider Super Angulon
Leica 21mm f/4 Super Angulon was designed and manufactured by Schneider, and uses the Classic SUPER-ANGULON symmetrical design which is usually for the 4×5 format. Lenses with this design are roughly symmetric, have large negative outer elements and smaller inner elements. Leica Super Angulon 21/f4 rear element comes very close to touching the film and the distance to the corners and center is very different served to darken and saturate the sky. This vignetting is a fact of life on large format lenses of similar design. It has excellent contrast and very saturated color.
