Yes indeed. That storm came through here last night and left us with 13 inches of snow this morning, but just to our south in Binghamton, NY they had 42 inches.Enjoying the craziness of 2020 where we are having a nor'easter and having accumulation of snow that we have not seen in several years! Happy holidays to everyone and looking forward to turning the page into a new year!
Godfrey,I have to get off my duff and finish the left hand grip I've been working on, very slowly.
If I had any faith that a full 56x56 format back which would work well with the Biogon 38mm f/4.5 T* lens would be available at some time soon and at a price that I could afford, I'd not have sold my SWC. Sigh; I don't. I used the money from selling the SWC to help fund the 907x and XCD 21mm lens, and I'm happy with that combination.
I had a 45P, which I returned 3 weeks later. The output is great, but autofocus takes forever to lock focus, and at f/4 it is too slow for me.Congrats . Hopefully your 907x is flawless . But you can only check that , when you use an XCD lens , due to the contacts (if functional)
With third party lenses the CFV II 50c behaves like it would be attached to a V-SYSTEM camera . And there the CFV works fine .
Good, enjoy it. I'll look at your test exposures a little later. (I may replicate your tests with a Summilux-R 50, Summicron-R 50, and Summicron-M 50, just to see how they differ. )So this bad boy arrived just in time for Christmas. I've used the Contax CY 50mm f1.4 on my GFX system before but I think it is much more compatible with the 907X (looks-wise).
Center sharpness is acceptable wide-open, provided you can nail it. Sharpens up really well at f4/f5.6. I've never been concerned with corner sharpness in 16 years of my photography journey so I didn't check that.
Vignetting is acceptable and correctable at close distance. Near infinity, you will have to toggle the vignetting slider to +2.0 or +3.0 (C1P) or crop 4:5 to be clean. Overall not an issue for the things I shoot.
Raw files of simple sharpness test (f/1.4 & f/5.6) and vignetting (MFD & infinity) here, free for everyone to evaluate: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1yGv0xDTKDuNNSHMS2-U-PDEWkYUcBVrD?usp=sharing

I finally managed to get my hands on a Minolta MD to X1D adaptor, pending shipping. Can't wait to adapt my 55mm f/1.7, 45mm f/2 and 100mm f/2.5.
