    C/Y Carl Zeiss lenses on NEX 5 via Rayqual adaptor

    Hi all,

    Received 3 lenses from my dad:
    1 Zeiss F1.7 50mm Planar
    2 Zeiss Distagon F2.8 28mm
    3 Zeiss Sonar F3.5 100mm

    Using the excellent Rayqual adaptors for NEX which I ordered from Japan -http://translate.google.com.sg/translate?hl=en&sl=ja&u=http://homepage2.nifty.com/rayqual/&ei=lhiSTLvzFZCWvAPfmeHOAw&sa=X&oi=translate&ct=re sult&resnum=3&ved=0CCoQ7gEwAg&prev=/search%3Fq%3Drayqual%26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1C1GGLS_enS G340SG340

    All 3 lenses focus on infinity when the barrel is at the infinity mark on the lens.

    Some sample random shots. Unfortunately, many were shot behind glass windows of my office room.

    Great images.

    I treasure my C/Y 28 f/2.8 distagon with Leitax mount on my a850. You might be interested in reading this comparison of the lens with other "world class lenses". http://www.16-9.net/lens_tests/28mm_3.html

    Thx! Will read that article - it's a pity I can't use it with a full frame camera - i only have the Nikon d700 and I undersstand it can't focus at or near infinity with the Leitax.

    Cheers
