First shots with a new Sony A6600 and an old Contax N 24-85 f/3.5-4.5 Vario-Sonnar using the Fringer CN-SE AF adapter. I also have the Contax N 70-200, 50/1.4 Planar, and 100 Makro Sonnar that all perform quite well with the Fringer adapter on Sony cameras.

Another shot of the orchids using the Contax N 50/1.4 Planar on the A6600.

Two shots with the A6600 Fringer CN-SE adapter and Contax N 70-200 F/3.5-4.5 Vario-Sonnar. Both at about 200 mm and imported via DXO PureRAW to Lightroom. Click for full size.

Hi Carl, seems very crisp shots, especially the first. Have you compared with the version without DXO PureRAW and see how much improvement it gives? Does DXO PureRAW have profiles for these older Contax lenses? I'd be interested in your experience with this program. I have been thinking to download the 30 day trial but haven't found the time yet. Downloading is not the problem, it's the evaluation that follows that probably eats more time than I have available at the moment.

Hi Pietr,

The improvement in these two images is subtle and mainly less grain in the oof background and slightly sharper overall. No old Contax lens profiles so I just ran these without a profile. You have the option of substituting profile from similar lens or just running without lens profile corrections. I like the app and the results. Also, I particularly am impressed with the simple and smooth workflow involving import, processing, and export of final image to main processing app (lightroom for me, but I think that Capture one and others are also supported).
