    Contax CZ 28-85 on Nikon D800? Good enough?

    Hi

    I wonder if anybody has tried the Contax Carl Zeiss 28-85 (with leitax adapter) on a Nikon D800?

    Is this lens going to be sharp enough for the d800? I have heard alot of good things about the sharpness on this lens and I can get it quite cheap too.

    So please give me your thoughts on the matter..

    I know its step down metering and all that but for cheap sharp glass I think it is worth it

    thanks for your help!

    Yes 28 f/2.8 and 50 f/1.4..

    The 28 f/2.8 is superb ...

    100 % crop, f/5.6



    The 50 f/1.4 is stopped down a good lens ...

    100% center crop f/5.6

    Looks like good sharpness on these 2! How do you think they are to work with on a D800?

    This is taken with a D800 - if you is ok with the 100% manual and stopped down. No problem with manual focus. (blackouts around f/8).
