Zeiss Lenses for X-Pro 1
Apr 4, 2012

How about this combo? Contax Distagon 18/4.0 and X-Pro 1. I am getting the KIPON Contax adapter next week and probaly the lens as a used one. Just want
to ask if somebody is using this combination already.

Thanks

I was pondering the same thing until I read this article:

For wide angle lenses @ wide open the edge smearing is quite severe. As the author pointed out there could be a number of reason for this to happen. I think I'll wait for the official M-mount and other reviews to make my decision.
