Contarex 85/2
3

I recently got this lens after ordering a Contax 85/2. Today, the Contarex-Leica M adapter arrived. I have never seen a lens that is as smooth and linear in the focusing or so solidly delicate. Obviously, we use lenses to take beautiful pictures. But it’s the first lens I have for which I can’t stand it’s beauty. I did a few test shots but did not have had any time for to adecuately test it really. It’s incredibly easy to focus and sharp it explodes the EVF with Yellow with Mid Peaking.

Here are some phone pics of it that don’t make this thing justice. I think it will be a problem lens, beachside it’s too beautifull to even USE. It’s so ironic that this was the last body by Ikon. Just holding this lens feel a bit feel too lusty.

Has anybody used this lens before?
