Bought the ZM 35/2.8 C-Biogon two weeks ago, moments before my camera left to Solms for rangefinder adjustments.
Never would thought I would miss that camera so much....

Carstenw, that was the first thing I tried. Who could resist a 1600mm f/22? But... the protruding element sadly and expectedly of the 2x hit the filter before it could connect with the lens. The Mutar I would work, but I donīt have the suitable pieces to puzzle it together. The lens "fastening ring" is a Nikon. So I use it with a Nikon to EOS adapter. Now if I could find a Contax "fastening ring" to use with the Mutar. Who could resist a 1600/22?


I wonder what would happen to the focusing range if you put a very thin macro ring in between?

Tamron SP 35-80/2.8-3.8

Not sure why I need it, but it was too good a deal to pass up.

not ars gratia artis, but rather alt gratia altis. A poor attempt at a pun and a facetious and ungrammatical Latin "alt for alt's sake". I guess it didn't come off as intented.

Contax 70 - 300 N. Unfortunately it's on the way to Japan to get a new AF motor installed so I won't be using it for quite some time.

Hello to all, I'm new to this section of FM. I just dipped a toe in the 'alt water' with a Minolta Rokkor 58 1.4 and I love it! I'd like to go wider with another fast prime (converted to EOS). Any suggestions? Thanks!

Samyang 14/2.8, Tamron SP17/3.5, Oly 21/2, 21/3.5, 24/2, 24/2.8, 28/3.5, Zeiss ZF/ZE 21/2.8, 25/2.8, 35/2, Contax 21/2.8, 28/2.8,35/1.4, Nikon AiS 28/2, 35/1.4, CV 20/3.5, 40/2 ......

I don't want to hijack the original intent of the thread but...
I shoot Canon crop frame right now with a (remote) possibility of going FF in the next year or so. I'd like to explore 24-50mm somewhere in the f/1.2 - f/2.0 range. Are all of the lenses you mention adaptable to EOS? I picked up a Fotodiox FD-EOS adapter because I've seen some good local deals on FD glass. Should I be concentrating on modified glass (ala the Jim Buchanan conversions)?

As for $$, I have no oil well in my backyard so budget is always a consideration.

Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask these questions (!!) but thanks for the suggestions...
