yabokkie: don't know the camera but it got a 24.2mm diagonal sensor (slightly larger than 4/3") and a lens factor of about 1.85x. so a 50/0.7 will do the job as 93/1.3.
so for the lens part, a 85/1.2L on 5D should be able to beat it.
what an idiot ...an F stop is an F stop al the bull about it will be F1.2 shows what an idiot the poster isand Zeiss T* coating was exellent then and still is NOWthese lenses were built to the top spec that money could buy not some modern production lens
Karroly: Is the quality of the ZEISS Makro-Planar T* 2/50 ZF.2 really mandatory to record 1024x512 pixel pictures or is the University of Jena just rich ?
Are Zeiss stil located in Jena ? I thought they re located to Oberkochen after the war ?
deleted_081301: If you want a cheap fun lens i recommend the Holga 25mm micro four thirds its only £9.99 compared to the price of this 15mm thing in the UK £60 ........ robbery only a retard would buy one at UK prices thats about $90 US
I have one allready also I have the 60 mm version with an adapter that one has the "baffle thingy" removed
The 15mm would be Ok but for the UK price which is criminal

Mahmoud Mousef: Well, Carl still gets confused for office products:http://www.carl-officeproducts.com/
...but this is progress.Lucky we don't have a Lucy Leica company.
http://corporate.zeiss.com/about/en_au/about-carl-zeiss.htmlZeiss seems to be stuck in the black&white era if those photos are anything to go by.
Carl Zeiss are still advertising the "Zeiss ikon" 35mm rangefinder camera (Re badged Cosina) on the web site as we type http://lenses.zeiss.com/camera-lenses/en_gb/camera_lenses/zeiss-ikon/zeiss_ikon_camera.htmlyour are of course correct about Kyocera
Zeiss Ikon were useing that name on the "Rebadged" Cosina/Voightlander film rangefinders up until quite recent the cameras were made for "Carl Zeiss" and had a range of Cosina made Carl Zeiss lenses with M mounts http://www.kenrockwell.com/zeiss/ikon.htm a similar Cosina was also badged as a "Rollie"
the reason "Carl Zeiss" didnt badge it as a "Contax" is due to contractual reasons with Yashica
"Zeiss Ikon" is a trade mark of "Carl Zeiss" or maybe just "Zeiss" ;-)
yabokkie: whatever the name, Zeiss means good products, made by a Japanese/Asian company, which got no good brand of it's own.
Voightlander A Living Brand .... dont make me laughthey died out at the end of the sixty's ... the "Name " was passed around for another 15 years of badge Engineering then eventually licensed to "Cosina" .....
they will be dropping the Zeiss next and calling themselves "Cosina" .....
Now people can put an overpriced Japanese lens with a "Zeiss" badge ON to their Japanese "SONY" camera with a " Hassleblad " Badge on it
then they can pretend to have a Swedish camera with a German lens on itjust like top photographers had back in the days of film.
felix from the suburbs: So sad. Many many years ago, before digital, buying a Hasselblad was a dream for me - and I suspect many others. Now, it seems that my dream company's latest offering essentially entails decorating a Sony camera. So sad.
No they dont they just rebadge Fuji medium format camera/lenses
macjonny1: I went out on my back patio, laid on the ground, and took a photo of my kid's bigwheel. Put a bleach bypass filter effect using ColoEfex pro, and looks just like this. Even took it in front of my neighbor's rancher for effect. Granted the bigwheel is plastic but looks the same to me!
With a Moustache .... ????
The photo is rubbish .. BUT thats not the point .. IF you buy something as a LIMITED edition from a run of 20
THEN Twenty should be the MAXIMUM number of prints made and a second run of "UN limited" prints IS wrong.when my friend used to do "Limited" editions from photos taken with his "5 x 4" camera he used to cut the negative up (A ten off would cut the neg into ten) and attach a part of the neg with each limited print
It wont be long before some one on E-Bay is selling a" Hasselblad kit" to clad your sony NEX-7 so it looks and feels like a "Lunar" at about 1/6 of the cost
deleted_081301: "Swedish camera manufacturer Hasselblad is finally shipping the 'Lunar'."
Hasselblad LONG AGO ceased to Manufacture Cameras... and long ago ceased to be SWEDISH .....Most of thier Cameras are made in Japan by Fuji as are the lenses for them
Now they are rebadging SONY's with a wood Veneer
I think Hasselblad has some part of its digital imaging in Denmark They bought a digital back company i believe ? (Or their owners did) and merged it into part of Hassleblad The web site says they still service Balds in sweden but that may just be the Real Blads not the re-badged Fuji's
What R&D do you need when putting your badge on other peoples products ?The H digital Blads are (or were) marketed in Japan as Fuji's
"Swedish camera manufacturer Hasselblad is finally shipping the 'Lunar'."
mpgxsvcd: I have a feeling that Hasselblad will still sell enough of these to make a minimal profit. There are a lot of people out there that still have enough money to just throw some away.
Not hard to make a profit is it ? £750 sony Nex7 and a bit of wood wrapped round it .. then sell it for £5280
mpgxsvcd: Not only did they have the Gaul to create the camera but they even "forcefully defended" the camera. Now they are actually making the camera. It is almost like they are trying to spite every potential customer they could ever have.
They could have just never come out with it and everyone would have forgotten about it.
The Vikings sold Hasselblad years ago mainly rebadged FUJI's in the H Blad and now rebadged Sony's
Shurato: Now here's the thing: First off, I myself personally would not be aspiring in saving and acquiring this camera, primarily because of budget reasons. Even if I had the budget and it was easy to get to it, I would get something else since I'm rather the type of 'form follows function', i.e. function (and features) first, then form, design, coolness, etc.And yet, I find this Sony/Hasselblad partnership very interesting with the following alleged ulterior motive: _IF_ this means Hasselblad is also going to build their E-mount lenses in their super-top-notch tack-sharp quality, which will be also usable on Sony NEX cams then this is a BIG YES! My NEX-C3 with a native Hasselblad E-mount lens would portray much more stylishness than a Hasselblad Lunar with a 'Sony' kit lens ;-)
"_IF_ this means Hasselblad is also going to build their E-mount lenses in their super-top-notch tack-sharp quality"
Hassleblad dont make Lenses (or Cameras) Zeiss used to make Lenses for Hassleblad back in the days when they made Cameras . NOW FUJI make hassleblad Cameras and Fuji make Hassleblad lenses too
rb59020: $900.00!?! For that price it should be an f1.0! I could git the Sony lens and 9 K-1000 bodies on ebay! Or three new tires for my pickup truck!
"Quite cheap for Zeiss lens."BUt very expensive for a COSINA lens
Benarm: Leica should take notes from Zeiss on how to survive in a digital age :)
Leica should take a leaf out of Zeiss book and maybe start to put the Leica name on COSINA lenses then sell them for stupid amounts of money ;-)Zeiss have gone the way of Hassleblad and are just a name on lenses made by other people (A modern day Vivitar)
