After trying out a few adapted Leica/Contax Zeiss lenses a few years ago the slippery slope was well and truly hit and now my entire sub-135mm kit is Leica & Zeiss.

Here's a selection from the archives:

450D + Contax Zeiss 28mm Distagon

Thanx Kenji...of course the timing is 100% luck...but I really like the tonal quality of the palm trees, the fronds and the trunk too...

Great Thread! I hope it keeps going. Have experimented a little with a Chinon 35mm F2.8 M42 mount on my 30D. Here is a shot with natural sunlight coming through a window. Taken in AV mode,1/50 sec, F8 with a little sharpening in PS.

Anyone else out there using adapted M42 screw mount lenses on there Canon bodies? I am thinking of getting a screw mount macro.

You can do some funky stuff with M42 lenses adapted to macro with a little imagination.

These are all taken with a Pentax Takumar 50mm f/1.4 reversed on to the end of a 105mm Pentax Takumar using a macro reversing ring. The 50 is focused on infinity and must be wide open at f/1.4 (otherwise you get vignetting from the aperture blades) and the 105 is used to focus and stop down. Magnification is about 2:1. Camera is 1DMK2 here.

I'm at home, and on dialup, so I can't see the whole thread to see if I'm repeating something. But no matter. This image (of our cat) was made with a:

Carl Zeiss Jena 135mm/3.5

using a $35 unidentified adapter with a focus-confirm chip that I bought off ebay. I think I paid $80 for the lens off ebay a couple of years ago.

I've included the full image and a 100% crop of the eye, though I think the ear might actually be a little closer to the focus plane.

The image was made with a 5D, using Av, and the lens was wide open. Shutter speed was 1/125, at ISO 400, with light from a bank of windows (which you can see reflected in the eye if you look closely--there's even a bit of my outline visible in the eye reflection). White Balance was 5500K, and I notched the exposure up a stop during the RAW conversion (I'd forgotten and left the exposure compensation dial a stop down). The image is cropped on the sides but it's full frame top to bottom.

Here's a picture of the lens, next to its big brother--a medium-format Zeiss Jena 180/2.8.

IMAGE: http://www.rickdenney.com/images/CRW_2834.jpg

My conclusion: It's probably hard to find a really bad 135, but I still put this one in the world-class category. It has the old-school Sonnar design, the creamy-smooth bokeh, and incredible sharpness even wide open. It ranks right up their on my all-time sleeper list.
