Yes, I will try to add a picture of the lens this week.

The lens is a pancake lens and I believe one of the smallest it's kind. Shame is that the adapter is as thick as the lens.
So I estimate a total of 5 cm (adapter + lens). Which is still very small and lightweight.

(PS : I want to add that I used some filmpresets. So it could be that some noise is grain)

Could you share the type/name of the film preset used? I really like the look. Great pictures!

The first two and the last one came straight like that out of the camera.
On the other ones I did minor manual adjustments. The output of the X-E1 is really filmisch by itself. No need to do much.
On the internet though you can find lots of free presets. Just google 'Lightroom Presets'...

I just paid for one of those lenses; hopefully I have it in the mail in a couple of days.

I will use it on an Olympus Epl1.

I'll see you have a lot of good legacy already, so it won't give you a wow effect. Anyway, this lens is really good and sharp, especially stopped down.
It works perfectly on E-PL1. I come from E-P1(which I still have) and used a lot of contax/yashica glass with it.

Stunning clarity on each shoots! Congrats!

It was sold in a package with a macro bellows witch was what I really wanted. But it was a good price and here in Sweden.
I am looking forward to small and good colours.

The lens is rather rare. I think you are lucky to have found one for a good price Smile

The tiny ZEISS Tessar 2,8/45mm is a 67,5mm lens on FUJI X-pro1 or XE-1 cameras. The Tessar type 4/3 elements optical design is world wide the most copyied lens for various cameras. It should be working fine also on all FUJI X cameras. Very Happy

Here two pics of this combo.

Interesting to know : if you align the green f8 with the green arrow, all between 2 and 10 meters is in focus !(see pics)
Nice for streetshooting:)

It is indeed a lovely lens. I hope to have mine out in the next couple of days, although I use it on an NEX.

Camera and pictures looks stunning. It's a little hint of pastel colors in your pictures, I like it Wink

This made me want to test out the x-e1. How do you like the Camera? Surprised

I really want one of those. A friend of mine modified one to fit his A900 and now it sits on his A99.



Guess I'll settle for my Rokkor-x 45mm f/2.

Is this lens an East German lens?

I think all Contax/Yashica Zeiss lenses are made in West Germany or Japan.

The ziess looks a treat on the Fuji. They really really are attractive dam little cameras aren't they.

Well I come from m43(Olympus PEN E-PL5).
The Fuji has superior image quality. Legacy lenses produce more (micro)contrast on the Fuji.
Colors on the E-PL5 look rather dull with legacy glass. Ofcourse this could be altered in post.
The Olympus has in body Image stabilisation and calculates automatic values better then the Fuji in my Opinion.
You have to think more wit the Fuji , especially in low light.

Nice combo ! The lens looks very interesting.

"You have to think more wit the Fuji , especially in low light." I totally agree on that, even coming from a Nex-5N. The Fuji colors are not a myth, the rendition is special and totally worth the slightly bigger effort and thinking involved in taking pictures with it with legacy lenses.
A bit of a warning also, some lenses will not perform at their best with the X-Trans sensor, especially some Rangefinder ones, and you will get smearing in corners. My Olympus Zuiko 38mm f/1.8 is nearly useless on the Fuji, only one third of the picture in the center area looks OK, it's sad because it was my favorite lens on the Nex, same problem with my Jupiter-3.

I got my copy yesterday and snapped a few pictures. Today the wife announced that it was hers

It performs as expected. It is clearly a Carl Zeiss lens.
