    Merry Christmas, Carl. Thanks for your "likes". Not many of us around enjoying the output of Zeiss/Contax lenses.

    Hi Roy. Maybe your recent images will help to put some new life in this thread for 2013. Happy Holidays and New Year to all!

    I had forgotten about these Alternate Forum threads until I saw Steen's posts on the Nikkor lens thread.

    Here are a couple images taken with my Hasselblad Zeiss 80mm CFE lens on a Nikon D700, shortly after I got the camera. I'm afraid I haven't taken any more images with the Hasselblad lenses on my Nikon DSLRs since then. Time to give it another try, perhaps on the D800E.

    By the way....does anyone know if there is a commonly recognized designation for the Hasselblad Zeiss V system lenses, similar to ZF, ZE etc designations?

    Gary

    Zeiss/Contax CY 100-300/4.5 Vario-Sonnar on EOS adapter...this lens is a real handful...especially at 300mm..no tripod collar.

    Zeiss/Contax 135/2.8 Sonnar w/EOS adapter...very underrated, but quite sharp and easy to handle...becomes a 180 on the 40D.

    @Michiel and Roy: that C/Y 100/2 Planar looks excellent, indeed! I've been pondering the ZF.2/ZE Makro-Planar 100/2 for a good while now, and I just looked around for prices of the C/Y 100/2. It seems the C/Y is fetching almost USD 1'000, and from there it's not that far to the price of the Makro-Planar (if you can get a good deal). Have any of you shot with both? If so, how do they compare?

    Ron: 100 Makro-Planar ZF focuses, obviously, closer than the 100/2 Planar CY...sharpness is about the same, however....superlative. ZF Makro-Planar (new) goes for around $1800 last time I looked...nearly double the cost and convenience of the 100/2 Planar CY which has to be manually stopped down.
    Both are wonderful lenses.

    BTW: I hate to bring this up...but...the 100/3.5 and 135/2.8 CYs would also provide a pleasurable experience...and very inexpensive.

    Are any of you using the C/Y Sonnar 2.8/135 or the 2.8/85 with the D800/E? If so, I'd be very curious to hear how they're holding up.

    TIA,

    Ron

    A snap of my wife with the ZF.2 18...



    Another of Times Square in NYC.



    Kind of the perfect subject for the Zeiss rendering style...

    +1. I would be interested in reports on performance of Contax C/Y lenses on either the D800e or Leica M. I tried using a Contax 28mm f/2.8 C/Y on a Leica M-E, but of course no RF coupling so I had to scale focus (with some assistance from my iPhone Rangefinder). Sample image below shot on the Leica M-E with Contax 28mm f/2.8 @ f/8.

    Re: Zeiss Lens Photos and Discussion

    Carl, I have managed to find a nice copy of the Sonnar 2.8/85 C/Y MM since my previous post. I've done the Leitax conversion and based on my limited shooting so far, the lens performs very well on the D800E. Contrast is very good, and image detail at f/5.6 is outstanding in the center and only marginally less so in the corners.

    HTH,

    Ron
