Thank you ..!

Looks a bit like an oil painting - I assume the quality of the 85mm F1.4 is quite a bit better when mounted on a native C/Y camera body?

Yes it was much sharper on my Contaxs? bit like the plural of Lexus or Lexi?

I pondered an Nex5 and adaptor for quite some time, but I can't bring myself to hold a camera at arms length to focus.

It is possible to buy an adaptor without the optics but I suspect maximum focus will be short of a metre.

It does sharpen up after F2.8, but then I might as well use any other lens.
