This is an "open thread" (not personal showcase). If you have this camera/lens combo, please feel free to add your pictures and experience of use. If you don't have it, you can add comments or questions or anything related.

I begin with saying that the G Planar 2/35 is my most recent lens acquisition and I am still getting to know it. I know it will not be as sharp as the 45mm but from the first shots it seems sharp enough and the extra width is useful

I add a few pictures now as a start, and I hope to add more in the future with better scanning quality (here edges are not ideal due to the weak edges of the duplicating lens):

Oh, I think I love this lens. At least as long as you are shooting with it.
These shots have such a classic look to them.
I love still the most the tour boat. The boats moored is also a favorite.
Wonderful as always Orio. It looks like you had a nice time there Smile

I have "rescanned" one of the slides, with much sharper results:

Long live Provia 100 and the Zeiss G Planar 2/35 !!
(and the indispensable Contax G!)
