Hi

Since the Contax Planar 50mm F1.7 is also a popular lens which people seek out as a possible better nifty 50 I am posting some samples which were taking via a manual adapter on my Canon XSI. All manual focus.

Bumping this thread, in the hopes that there are folks out there that have this lens. Or even it's bigger brother in 1.4. This lens has caught my attention in the 5D classic thread, so I'm trying to find more examples of this lens on EOS cameras. Let's see what you (hopefully) got!

The MF adapted lens thread has a few photos shot with the 50mm 1.7, if you feel like scanning through 50 some pages. There´s a group on flickr dedicated to the 1.7, http://www.flickr.com/groups/812852@N22/, with 575 photos at the moment. SLRlensreview.com has reviewed both the 1.7 and the 1.4, among many others:

My own little contribution, shot with the 1.7 and a Rebel XTi (clickable):

Since it's not really a Canon lens, people use the MF Lens thread...

http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=644277

Or else there'll be so many more threads for every single MF lens out there...
