thanks, the 58mm shots are both at f/2, the 200mm shot is wide open all on the NEX-7.

here is a few shots from the 17/4 brad was kind enough to let me borrow. on portra 160 film:







i'm afraid i'm not much of a wide angle guy, so shooting it was a bit awkward for me.

Nice work people. This gets me excited over the 58/1.2 once again.

Phillip, how did/do you go about when it comes to infinity? I've been on my way to grind my retainer ring for many months now. Finally last week when I meant to screw it off to grind the ring in safe distance from the lens. But found it seem like a full section of rear glass group will be screwed off. So I stopped as I am very novice at lens surgery. Now I am leaning towards dremel it on the lens with a lot of tape instead.

I grinded down the retainer ring myself, and it is rather easy if you unscrew the rear lens group like you did. I then placed a sanding paper flat down on a table and with the lens group held at an angle to keep the rear lens from touching the sanding paper, it was easy to sand down the retainer ring without harming the rear element. Still canīt focus to infinity though, but I think my 5DMkII has less clearance than average.

It is common knowledge (or was, anyway - somehow it seems to be forgotten) that the vast majority of 5Dc and 5DII mirrors will still collide with the Rokkor, even after the rear element retaining ring has been reduced. A FEW of these cameras have a large enough tolerance that a FEW people have reported that reducing the Rokkor RERR was enough.

The mirror mod is far easier than people think it is, and it enables the camera to accept much more than a modded Rokkor...

What is the best way? I'm toying with the idea of shaving my 5D2 mirror for my Contax 35 1.4

What does it entail specifically? A high-speed grinder? mirror removal? Write out the steps or link it us up to a tute that's sane.
