Shoot first Contax G-series Planar T* 2/45 shots today. This lens is definitely very sharp, even wide open. But bokeh can be too edgy on wide apertures and even at f/11 on some circumstances. Rendering style is quite "Zeiss"-like, I think I'll like this lens when I get to know better. I took few landscapes, but visibility wasn't that great, but it seems this lens is very capable on larger distances as well.
Lens is also ridiculously small (I'm used to Zeiss ZE-series lenses on 5DmkII). It's focused via adapter, and mine works mostly OK but sometimes adapter struggles little (it does same without lens). If I really fell in love to these Contax G-lenses, then maybe Metabones adapter is needed (I now have Kiwi-branded, not cheapest but Metabones looks much better). It's hilarious how people struggle installing Contax G lens to adapter (did see some Youtube videos people complaining about it), it's very easy, at least with Kiwi branded adapters.
