Contax 50mm f/1.7 - anyone?
Jan 11, 2010

I'm really liking the output from my Nikon 50mm f/1.8 and 55mm f/3.5 but it is also making my more curious about other legacy glass on M43.

Has anyone here used the Contax 50mm f/1.7?

While my first impulse was for the Contax G 45mm f/2.0 I was worried about the fiddily focus issues with that adapter.

This is kind of an odd question I know, but I'm very much searching for a great glass in the 80-135mm focal length equivalent. For DOF and low light purposes I'm searching only in the f/2.0 and quicker aperture range.

Samples and discussion very much welcome!
