Re: Zeiss Contax-G Sonnar 2.8/90

Goodto know thanks. I have a Metabones, my gripe with that style is they had to make it big for the 21, so it’s oversized for the smaller lenses, adds too much bulk and weight.

Thanks, I think they had a good size clearing, though they also stayed surprisingly low at first...

Yea, the R2 is about the best combo. The newer bodies don’t play nice with the TA-GA3 still...

I like these Contax G threads! Liking the rendering of the river in your shots.

Nice balloon shot. I would be concerned to get punctured by one of those cacti. Looks like the A7RII behaves very nicely with the 2/45 and 2.8/90.

I only use manual adapters with my C-G lenses.

I use the Fotodiox with both, the 45mm and 90 mm lenses. It is quite smooth after having been used for a few years. I looked at the TAs and was not impressed with the focus speed so decided to stay manual.
