Zeiss Contax Forum for the classic Zeiss Contax I, II, III, IIa, IIIa , G series, and if you want to push it, the nice Contax point and shoots. Some spill over from the Kievs, the Soviet copy of the Contax II/III can also be expected. Plus the ONLY production camera ever made in classic Zeiss Contax Rangefinder mount WITH TTL metering ... the Voigtlander Bessa R2C.

Thanks. The three photos were taken this summer in Camogli, Italy. It is located close to Portofino and to Genova. I expected the special light and colors there, so I took along the Sonnar.

I use the 5cm 1.5 mainly for portraits, but it is also great for contrasty scenes that require a lower contrast lens to manage handling it all.

I just picked up a contax I with broken shutter for cheap, that has a 1934 Jena Sonnar 50 1.5 on it. I can't wait to put it on my M2 with the Amedeo adaptor. I love uncoated lenses. Curious how it will perform against my Cron Rigid and Collapsible Cron. Maybe I will do a real world comparison test.

Nikon S2, Sonnar 50mm f/1.5 uncoated nickel, 400-2TMY.

My copy is extremely sharp, but vignettes horribly.

Erik.
