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.

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.

-Jason


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!

Got my C/Y to EOS chipped adapter from Rudolf at HappyPageHK and it works great on my 1ds3.
I am getting infininity focus now as the adapter is slimmer (about .1mm) than the photodiox one that came with the lens when I bought it. It also fits tight and has no play. Also having the lens info in the exif along with better exposures, less need for exposure compensation than without the chip as usually is the case.
The mirror doesn't hang either on my 1ds3.

Nice one teh_rebel.

Here are some street shots taken with my C/Y version:
Most are shot wide open.
The Bistro sign is for Lotus and Edward.

Indeed, wonderful set Wayne. If you'd correct the CA on #1 and #3 they would look even sharper. Especially the hanging sign shows it clearly on the letters (red/cyan fringes).

Couple of shots taken last week. While it's a pleasure to use wide open, this lens isn't bad either stopped down.
CY MM-J

#1 - wide open (carousel horse)


#2 - wide open (Aluminum plate)


#3 - f/5.6 (building in Paris)

Nice shots guys! I'm seeing the 35/1.4 as one of the better FL's and character's for a lot of candid and street scenes.

Ahhh! Missed one last night on Ebay - excellent condition that sold for $903.00 usd with only two bidders - somebody got a good deal. I knew I should have bid higher - cheapest one since this thread started.

Thanks Paul,Philippe,mMontag,AhamB,Andreas, and Charles!
I'll take a look at removing the CA in the 1st and 3rd one, thanks for pointing it out.

Alex, like the 2nd shot the best too.

Getting the right thickness adapter really made a huge sharpness difference for shots over 15 ft. away.
