    Vintage lens on D800

    Hello

    I'll try with a humble contribution to these excellent pages with a little test a few vintage lenses.

    My D800 is in backorder, so it's only thanks to Steen from this forum, I have had the opportunity to test and play around with the D800 - thanks to Steen for his generous approach to a colleague in need.

    All images are shot RAW, opened in Camera Raw 6.7, lens correction, standard camera, RAW presharpen - no other PP.


    First The Zeiss Contax 28mm 2.8 at f/5.6



    and at 100% crop of same picture

    all 50mm are handheld, 28 mm is MUP delay and tripot.

    The Contax Zeiss glass looks pretty good but the old Nikon is just giving plain weird results!

    Thanks for sharing mate... I just fitted a Leitax to my 50mm summicron R and am looking forward to giving it a proper workout soon...
