Contax g 28mm F2.8 Distagon or Biogon
Mar 27, 2013

I read a post here recently that said the distagon was sharper than the Biogon version.

I checked on ebay and 2 come up as Contax g 28mm  distagon F2.8. They are selling for a bit more than the Biogon.

But the photos show Biogon clearly on the front of the lens and it looks identical to the Biogon versions.

Is there in fact a separate Distagon model and if so does it have any identifying marks so you can tell?

Greg.
