View Full Version : focus difference between G2 bodies
hi all , bought another G2 the other day , scuffed but seems sweet , has a 35mm lens which i did not have and it was only $200.00 New Zealand dollars all up so I had to get it......anyhow , there is a difference (slight ) between the focus distance the bodies give me , one body might say its 1.98 m , the other might say 1.94 m , have not finished roll in new body yet but wondering if any other owner of 2 G2 bodies has the same thing happening ?
Same here... I have one that gives 1.47m and another showing 1.54m for the same object distance. Pretty minor difference, and yours is even less. I have not seen any focus problems in the film, and if you don't either, I'd consider it irrelevant. Enjoy your "new" G2! :)
I think the AF in the Contax G is not totaly steppless. It may well be that it measures 1.96m and sets the first to 1.98 and the other measures 1.95m sets 1.94 as the distance.
IMHO short of a viewcamera and a 10x loupe nothing focuses more exact than 1% of the distance.
thanks guys for getting back to me on that , glad it is not just my 2 bodies .
And yes , View Cams are proper...havn't used one since i stopped assisting...I need better clients who like my work and have bigger budgets for me.....
Then I will buy one. Very little ad work gets shot on View Cams in N.Z now , most high end work is being shot digital which I think is a great shame , though I do like charging for digital processing...
