On the 5N, Edward, I get neither softness nor colour shift with my ZM 18. On the other hand, I had both on the ZM 25 I tried, which I therefore did not purchase. I bought the phenomenal Elmar 24 instead.

Thank you very much Sebboh and Philippe. It's interesting that the 18 seems to be better than the 25 on the Nex, while it is the opposite on the M9. None of the lenses showed any weaknesses on the GXR though.

That the 18 is problem-free whereas the less-wide 25 is explained by Zeiss' Dr Nasse. The 18 is a quasi-retro focus Distagon, whereas the 25 is a symmetrical Biogon, the architecture that is most problematic, as also demonstrated by the CV wides.

Thank you Philippe. That makes sense in terms of design, but for some reason the 18 produces more color shift on the M9. But good to know nonetheless. The Nex 6 should arrive soon

Great photos everyone!

I have a question though. I have been considering the Nex 6 for a while but unsure about the corner performance with my ZM wides. Would very much appreciate your opinion


Edward,

I've been using the NEX-6 with the ZM 25/2.8, ZM 35/2.8, CV 15/4.5 and CV35/1.2. Both Biogons have a little bit of smearing and faint color shift compared to the GXR. The CV15 has more than I expected, to the point I stopped shooting all of the snowy Michigan scenes with it on the NEX-6, it just remains on the GXR. The CV 35/1.2 is flawless with edge to edge corner sharpness and no color shift.

I had bad luck with cheaper adapters, and went through a few before just spending a bit more for a Fotodiox Pro adapter. Cheap ones either didn't reach infinity or were not entirely parallel to the sensor plane. I think the best one is probably the Voigtlander one because the release tab is so low profile, many of them will dig into your right middle finger. I can't remember, but I don't think I've seen you do much on a tripod. Regardless, the palm grip from Jim Buchanan has really made the camera more comfortable for me to shoot with, especially with heavier lenses mounted. It's got an Arca-Swiss base built into it as well, which I use all the time.

Some good images on this page. Jacob D, I like your rock shot and road shot; plasticmotif, great panos.

Long time no post, but with the flat and monotonous winter receding, I decided to snap some quick ones from the yard with the C3 + Helios 58mm f/2. These are slightly stopped down (2.8 or 4). Wish summer was here already.

Thank you very much Matt for the very important info. I will be getting the Voigtlander adapter since the dealer is just a couple of blocks from where I live. I hope my 35/2 will have less color shift than the 35/2.8 due to the less compact design, but I may be wrong on this one.

Edward, I had a Voigtländer adapter and, while it was definitely very good, I cannot say that it was better than my Novoflex, which I like even a bit better.
Regarding trouble with the ZM 35 f:2.0, it is marginal on the NEX 7, so you should be fine, by my reckoning, on the 6. Have fun!

It's been a while since I posted something, so here's a few comments on the last pages:
Jacob D, lots of great photos. I really like the composition and colors in your last photo (the one with the road).
twelveish, I like the whole airport set. I think the first one is my favourite, with the shadowed man.
sculptormic, great portraits!
Tokigor, I like the clean and fresh feeling in your photo. Lovely colors.
ulrikft2, great composition in that second photo!

I've got a new lens, an aus Jena 135/3.5 manufactured sometime between 1967 and 1970 according to the serial nr. I got it cheap because the focusing was stiff and grinding. Took it apart yesterday, greased it properly and spent ages assembling it again. I've seen instructions for repairing a CZJ 135/3.5 and thought the aus Jena would be similar, but the aus Jena has a preset aperture and a mechanism for opening up the aperture to compensate when focusing closer that took some time to figure out. But miraculously it now works fine, so here's a couple of photos from it. All of them wide open with no hood (waiting on one from ebay).
