    nex 7 and which lens in my wardrobe

    I have:

    1. Leica 35/2.8 Sumaron with goggles. Can I unscrew the goggles and use it on the nex?

    2. Contax G. 45/2 Planar.

    3. Contax/Yashica 45/2.8 Tessar T pancake & 50/1.7 Planar T.

    With these lenses in the wardrobe, if you were to get only one adaptor for your new nex 7, what would be your choice and why?

    I would use the Contax G 45mm f2 because it is near perfect.
    Sharp from f2 on, no magenta corners nor corner smearing, has a short minimum focus distance and is relatively small.

    Other wise you could invest in the smaller Minolta Rokkor M 40mm f2 for Leica M Mount but it is not as sharp as the 45mm wide open and has less contrast (this has good and bad sides but overall I like good contrast).

    The Rokkor goes for about 300 and a Leica M adapter can be found cheap on ebay.

    Looks like this on a 5-n



    Greets,

    1. not sure about the goggles - I think I saw the 135 with goggs on a nex.

    2. stellar lens, wonky adapter.

    3. inexpensive c/y adapters work fine.

    No question, if you plunk down some cash to find a good adapter (I like the Kipon), I can not highly enough recommend the G45.

    Small, light, fast and most of all SHARP as Hell...
