Hi

I had a nice chance to try this lens out.

It is a manual focus lens for Contax 645 camera system - medium format.

The aperture requires the body, otherwise it won't work - it's fully controlled by the camera.

Well, I couldn't mount the lens on 5DMkII properly because I have no adapter.

I had to attach the lens to 5DMkII by hand and hold it - very awkward

impressions - vignetting virtually doesn't exist, colours pleasant, CA and fringing controlled, sharpness great
contrast great - maybe a need an adapter - I had a light leak inside sometimes but that's because I held it by hand

a few samples

tf

1 - POPPY POP OUT


2 - THROUGH GLASS


3 - A BIRD


4 - A LEAF


5 - NO NAME 1


6 - NO NAME 2

Orio - if you get one, I think you won't regret that purchase

Oh, I forgot - the bokeh is amazing

How have you managed to handle the electronical operated lens diagram to stop down on this excellent glass?

Just for the leaves, it is worth getting the lens.

No lens will outperform my S-Planar f:4 100mm. I have an outstanding copy. I know I`m biased. Very Happy
But I want that one badly. Have to look for some money.

One other such lens seems to be the current 2/100 Makro-Planar ZE/ZF.
Amazing specs that do translate into real results.
