If you're really interested in the ZF lenses, then look into a Nikon D700. That addresses the aperture, but of course the lenses are still manual focus.

When it comes to 50mm and wider, plus Contax RTS manual lenses and the Canon 5D - take nothing for granted. It's about a 50/50 split of people saying X will work or won't work on their Canon 5D. Sin ...

Bo-ming is correct. The Contax 50mm F1.7 AE & MM and Contax 50mm F1.4 AE & MM are a mixed bag on the Canon 5D. Many variables - adapter thickness, lens is proper adjustment and Canon 5D mirr ...

I'm sure the new ZF is a fine lens optically; however, I prefer C/Y ergonomics - it's smaller and its aperture ring design is superior. They are two different lenses - the ZF being a macro and the C/ ...

I'd recommend the C/Y 100/2 Planar over the new Zeiss 100/2 ZF. I'd also put the 100/2 ahead of the 85/1.4N.

Thanks. Slight edits made to the articles. Nothing new, I'm editing them all the time. I'm the typo-king! Smile

John-

Thanks for the great reviews.

One thing that the linked PhotoZone review failed to mention was that the Contax 85/1.4 is not merely a reincarnation of the former CY 84/1.4, but a whole new ...

I decided to shoot just medium format for awhile and purchased a P25 back a couple months ago. All the Canon gear is being sold to help pay for back, so the 85N and 100N are among the items. You can ...
