I use a no name for my Rollei. I get infinity and no hang.
For the CY I use a 2 year old HappypageHK. I get infinity.
The Gifts Hunter adapter I got was slightly too thin so the mod I did to the CY is not enough with this adapter. It hangs the mirror on my 5DII.

Thanks Paul and Andreas for the adapter info.
I just ordered a new C/Y-EOS chipped adapter from HappyPageHK.
Hopefully I will get infinity focus with no play in the adapter-camera-lens connection.

I think I got the same adapter and asked before I bought it to ensure that it would be thin enough for infinity focus. When I first received it, I didn't even get close to infinity focus, more like 30-50 ft. But, I adjusted the screws on the barrel under the rubber grip and managed to get infinity focus ever so close to mirror hang on my 5D. But, I have infinity focus and no mirror hang.

Hey guys! Ive been watching this thread and cant help to love this lens. I am searching for one to buy on ebay.

I have a question for Anden...can you please share your PP work on your portraits? Do you use any special sharpening methods? I just love the natural look of all of your photos!

I shoot raw. Adjust a little when converting to JPG. No special magic sorry.

Andreas has a great eye for framing and subject positioning. The 35/1.4 takes care of the rest...

Few from this evening...


Wide open @ 1.4 with the 35. Love the way it renders OOF areas.



More of just a test frame to see how the lens does approaching infinity focus. Stopped down to 5.6. Going to have to mod the rear element guard eventually so that my copy will focus to infinity on my 5D. I may try to find a 5Dii that it goes to infinity on first and buy that instead. Talk about convoluted thinking... buying another body to aviod harming a lens you adore...

Andreas, I have a question for you. What exactly did you do to your C/Y to get it to not hang at infinity? Did you just mod the rear element guard tab, as I think that is where is it is hitting? I don't want to grind that tab down, but I am thinking about it if it will help the lens to work at infinity. Thanks.

Andreas,

Wow, how close did you get to that bird, ~10 inches? Nice detail!
Like the sharpness, 3-d ness of the dart player, but not digging the background sunlit tree bokeh.

Thank you Andi!

Wayne. The bird is the full frame. No cropping. f/1.4.

I agree about the background of the last frame. You canīt get everything :-) I donīt remember the f-stop. Probably 2.8 or 4.

The guard tab canīt be taken of without opening the lens. That is not recommended due to the floating element design. I focussed the lens at MFD in order to get the rear element out of the way. I then filled the hole with lens cleaning tissues and taped everyting with tape that does not leave residue. Tape really well since you do not want the metal sand in the lens...
I filed the tap at an angle about 0.5 mm or so. I tested the lens on the camera and voilá! It works.
Make sure that you have a vaccum cleaner available as well as a blower. Vaccum the tape before removing it from the lens.
I donīt regret it. It still works as before on my Contax cameras.

Good luck!
