Never thought I would be able to post in this thread, but with adapters for Exakta mount, I can. Took out an old friend of a lens on the Fuji XE1... Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 2/58, a lens I don't think I have seen used in this thread.

It renders colors so very well, only played with this a little in LR. I always forget to change the lens in the the camera data.

Very nice, I love the way that lens renders. Even though I own the ZF.2 100/2 and 35/1.4, I suspect I will end up with the Contax versions anyway...


So the Contax 100 F2 Planar renders better than 100 MP ZF2 ?
This version don't work on Nikon with adapter.. right?

Nice images. Must be an interesting looking combo. Uh, reminds me how it will probably look on a Sony A7

which contax tele would you recommend? 135/2.8, 180/2.8, 200/3.5, or the 300/4? all seem to be at the same price range - which is the one to get?

The 100-300 is meant to be very good. I have tried it only once, and it is very sharp. The 135/2.8 is not that sharp, nice lens though. I don't know the others. The best one is probably the 400/4 but that is an N lens

@ken.vs.ryu: As far as I know none of them are really strong performers (all suffering from various forms of fringing). The Vario-Sonnars 80-200/4 and 100-300/4.5-5.6 are excellent though (especially the 100-300).

I've seen people here who said they like the 135/2.8, 180/2.8 and 300/4 for their drawing style though, so they must have some of the Zeiss character.

The 100-300 is superb at 100mm, but performance degrades the closer you get to 300mm, where it's just bad. Purple fringing everywhere. I wouldn't recommend it other then as a very large and slow (although superb) 100mm lens, with a bonus feature that it can be zoomed to 300 in emergency situations.

Well, I have the 80-200/4 and quite like it, although it is not excellent in any way, really. But it has all-round decent performance and a nice rendering style. Stopped down it is quite sharp, but what isn't?

Contax n 70-200 is excellent, sharper than the 80-200 and 100-300.

I have owned the C/Y Zeiss 100-300/4.5-5.6 for few months. Love it. Many of my pictures were taken @ 300mm, and wide open (f4.5). It's on my Fujifilm X-E1, with the crop sensor, it's an 150-450mm lens. I am going to finally convert it to Nikon F mount, I think it will be even a better performer on my Nikon full frame cameras. But many of them have zoom creep problem. It happens to almost all push-pull telephoto zoom lenses.

Pictures straight from camera, JPG, w/o any posting process.

In C/Y mount, the Aposonnar 200/2 or Tele-Apotessar 300/2.8 are my recommendations. Don't look at prices on a full stomach.

The C/Y Zeiss VS T* 70-210 f3.5 Macro is a famous lens, too. It's in more traditional Zeiss category, more rich, deep... But it's heavy. I haven't had chance to use it, but have seen my friend's.
