A rumor?
Or some news somewhere?
I too would love to have such, as this would enable us to use our beloved focus via wire lens.
However, I have read two posts in FM Alt, that Metabones was not considering such...

If it's a rumour, maybe I just started it.

I sent them an email early this week to ask if they have any plans for this. I'll post a dedicated thread if they answer anything like or even close to 'yes'.

I suspect the only reason that they wouldn't is if Fujifilm won't "play ball". Metabones seems to have Canon and Sony locked up, just fine.

I emailed them about a month ago asking about OM-XF adapters, and never got a response.

Metabones sent me this in November, I asked about both XF and E mounts:

Yes! OM adapter and speed booster will launch around end of month.

Thank you!

Obviously it was delayed but I would still expect to see it soon.

I came home with a Yashica 21 f/3.5 and a C/Y mount Zeiss 85 f/1.4 today, now I just have to wait for my adapter to arrive.

A Oly 24/2.8 and a Zeiss 28/2.8 are challenging for the title of the WA in my 2-lens-kit. No time for real testing, but I have a feeling the Zeiss is going to win this one ( for me, I am a little sold to the Zeiss lenses if I have a choice )

The Zeiss 28/2.8 is better than the Oly 24/2.8. I've owned two of each. OTOH, they are different focal lengths; a bit.

Got a new lens. The Konica UC Hexanon 28mm F1.8 was a steal, I could not resist.
Next to it is a Konica Hexanon 57mm F1.2, which is also back at home since a short time.
I had it in the past, sold it, and always wanted it back.

Yes, great lens, but... not the same. The Contax 35/1.4 and 100/2 are both different enough that I would love to try them. In general I prefer to have a matched set of lenses, but one day, I will buy those two.


Yes the 100/2 is next on my list, or perhaps 135/2.

Is there a Contax 135/2 or do you mean the ZF?

There is a Contax 135/2.0 (I've had 2 of them over the years, still have one).

Interesting. I haven't heard of this lens before. Has anyone here tried it? How does it compare to the Contax 100/2 and the ZF 135/2?

Very sharp wide open at distance but less sharp wide open at close range.

Some Lateral CA/colour fringing wide open, goes away when stopped down a little, but only visible on high contrast subjects.

Very soft/smooth bokeh is arguably this lenses forte.

Thanks. How far is "distance"? Does it have similar rendering to the ZF 85 @ f/2?

The lens has a mixture of lateral and longitudinal CA. The lateral part does of course not go away as the lens is stopped down, only the longitudinal part.

Sharpness is subjective. The lens is no match for the ZF 2/135.
