Nikon Planar II 85mm?
Apr 12, 2013

"those particular lenses (Nikon planar-II) are about the highest performing lenses which will work with the Metabones Speedbooster to adapt to the NEX e-mount system. For example, if you were to choose the 85mm model, that would give you an approximately 65mm 35-equivalence of the most totally superior quality imaginable...far far better than a 24mm Zeiss or a 10-18. Mind you, very expensive."

Could someone give me the specific name of this lens and how good is it really? From a Nex discussion of FF, an argument for the mentioned setup agains RX1. Only found one Nikon 85mm 1.4, $1500, but lost the name. And if I should get, let's say a 30mm of the same quality, what would that cost?

OT maybe, but how good is the Nikon Coolpix lens compared to the mentioned lens? If Nikon made a B with 50 or 75mm, interesting. But no EVF and no stabilization.
