Not a lens, but I'm going to confess it here anyway. My offer on a GXR + A12 M + EVF-2 was just accepted. My curiosity hit a happy intersection with the dramatically falling prices.

Thanks, when I seen that sebboh had been able to do it, I really, really wanted that setup.
I've also been wondering if the 45 will fit in the MC 50/3.5 macro body, I'll have to investigate when I get the 45, if it fits, the 1.7 will be for the future G28 I plan on getting soon.

The surface and inside of this one looks good from the photo. Hopefully you won't have any issues or problems.

Looks ok to me too.

What didn't I buy last night...
Contax RF to NEX adapter
Industar 61 Contax RF mount
Helios 103 Contax RF mount
2 Leica helicoids & mounts(LTM)90mm &135mm, I'm thinking that the Contax G 90 may fit in one of them preferably the 90.

500/8 is a nice lens for a mirror.It was also produced for Leica R once upon the time.

Got the lens. A small undescribed problem is the rubber focus ring is loose.

The glass is dusty but immaculate. I think it's a keeper!

I assume the rubber is loose on the focus ring, Is it stretched or just not glued to it?
Cleaning the glass should be easy, just use caution when putting tools near the glass.
Oh, and congrats.

It's just stretched. I may try putting it in boiling water to shrink it a bit.

Konica Hexanon AR 100/2.8 - on the way.

I found Hexanons to be sharp with much lower than average CAs and very neutral colour rendition on the NEX5N/7.

Hexanon AR 24/2.8AE is soft and dreamy wo but at f5.6 is sharp in the centre and reasonably sharp in the corners.It has very low level of CAs compared to other 24-25mm lenses that I've got ,save Distagon 25/2.8 ZF.

Hexanon 35/2.8 EE is sharp in the center wo and soft in corners,but stopped to f4 it gets sharp across the frame and has also very low level of CAs.

Hexanons 50/1.7 and 50/3.5 are sharp wo and very sharp at f5.6 with negligible CAs.

I expect 100/2.8 Hex to behave the same.I'm considering purchase of 40/1.8,135/2.5 and older 28/3.5EE.They seem to be very good performers as well.

The Hexanon 57 1.4 and 1.2 are pretty great too.

Thanks. .57/1.2 prices are so high that I would not buy one without trying it out myself.The same refers to 85/1.8.But 57/1.4 seems to be pretty cheap so I can take a risk.

Thank you plasticmotif.I spot this thread by our FM earlier this day.Good to know the lens does pretty well with demanding NEX7 sensor.I look around to find some nice 57/1,4 or 50/1.4.

Meanwhile I bought Hexanon 28/3.5 EE,the older,black,full metal version,with 7/7 optical construction,giving up it's newer 5/5 incarnation.

From my experience with old alt lenses without special (i.e. asph,ED,ect) glass, it is quite clear,that more complex optical construction has usually better overall IQ compared with newer,simplified design.
