Wonderful Sonnar bokeh + fantastic sharp lens, all shot @f2.8 wide open on Lumix GH1 (using the Metabones adaptor) - it's a ZEISS.

Amazing! What kind of adapter do you have ?


PostPosted: Mon Nov 29, 2010 11:39 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

The Metabones Contax-G to m4/3 adaptor, which has focusing built in. Expensive, but the best of all existing ones. See ebay Click here to see on Ebay

Cool lens congrats.

Btw i don't see the CA which are usually there for this lens at f2.8.
Have you reduced them in the software?

nope, all directly from the cam, just resized.

Yep, that was an issue I had discussed with them. I got one where Lasjas had promised to have it tested working and my lock pin actually does lock teh lens in place. The focusing ring at first was a bit hard to use, but got better after some time.

Yes, but for a tele lens, full frame is not as important as for a wide.
And I have to say, that the image quality of these pictures is impressive. I have the Sonnar G, but I've never been able to make pictures so impressive with film, as Klaus did with this camera. I'm happy that I am broke at the moment, otherwise the temptation to get this camera and the adapter would be irresistible - and Klaus would have another bank account's death on his conscience!

And what would that have to do with my Contax G thread???? Is that a "kindergarden" here or what...

my comment is a reply to point that the m4:3 is not the only way to use Contax G lenses
the link I give show what can be done with Contax G lenses and more lenses on the Nex-5

It is about Arri lenses used on a Nex5. "Very related" to that thread here.

My intention was to show the performance of that 90mm Contax G lens on a Lumix GH1. It was not meant as an open invitation to talk about how to use lens x on body y, right?

About time for me to take a break I guess...

Taking a break is refreshing Smile
I feel lot better also after the break now.

The G lenses are nice .. i have to show some early samples from my G 2,8/28 Biogon i got from the mail yesturday.

Btw. What's with the 'cine lenses' subforum ?
I was wondering too where to put my samples .. in NEX section?

Yes, in fact this thread should not be in cine lenses (as the Sonnar G is not).
I will move it to a more appropriate forum.

EDIT: moved to Sony-NEX forum.

Yes, please move it. That is correct, a Contax G lens is no cine lens. Thanks.

Moved to Autofocus Corner.

nice images, really beautiful colour rendition

i just recently acquired the 90mm 2.8 and a Lumix DMC-GH2 almost in the same week, both 'previously loved'

whatever, both are un-familiar still, both are in learning-curve-space

i'm leaving them firmly attached to each other till further notice
