Report XENOMAX 3.5/50
I borrowed a prototype model of Ms-optics’ new lens, XENOMAX
XENOR 50mm / F3.5, so I attached the lens to X1DII and went around Kamakura in late spring. (2022.4.21: Name changed to XENOMAX)
Most of the shots were taken at the maximum aperture of f/3.5. I occasionally stopped down the aperture, but the shooting results were not different enough to make a clear difference.
The lens has sufficient sharpness and resolution from the widest aperture, and the light falloff at the four corners is slight, which is sufficient to cover the 44 x 33 mm medium-format digital sensor.

Comments and Photos
This photo trip will take me from Fujisawa Station to Kamakura.
I like to take the Enoden from Fujisawa Station because it is crowded when riding from Kamakura.
Stopover at Koshigoe Station and visit Manpukuji Temple.
Lingering cherry blossoms and early summer flowers were in bloom.
There used to be a cat here, but not this time.
Leaving Manpukuji Temple, I walk to Kamakura High School Station with the sea at my side.
Get off at Hase Station and walk to Kotokuji Temple, home of the Great Buddha of Kamakura.
The admission fee to Kotokuji was unchanged at 300 yen.
The Great Buddha of Kamakura is very impressive sitting under the sky without a shrine.
From Kotokuji Temple, move on foot to Haseji Temple.
The entrance fee here is 400 yen.
The main statue, Hase Kannon, is said to be 1,300 years old, which reminds us of the transience of human life.
From Hase Station, take the Enoden to Kamakura Station.
The train started running with many people on board.
