Gorgeous !

I also use Contax lenses on a S (006 and now 007).

The Zeiss 140mm is one of my favorite with the 120mm Makro Planar.

It is a wonderful combination and a joy to use.

I also have some Leica S lenses but I probably prefer the old Zeiss for Contax 645. They are a lot cheaper, more compact and light and they have a lot of character.

Hi Glaudus,
Thanks for the feedback. We seem to share a similar platform. Among the Contax/Zeiss 645 lenses, the 55mm and the 80mm F2 stand out in my experience, with the latter sometimes exhibiting a "wild side" which can be rather surprising. The 140 appears smooth and controllable by contrast.
Greetings into the weekend,
