Re: Sony FE 100-400/4.5-5.6 GM vs Contax 100-300/4.5-5.6


Very interesting topic. I am in the process of moving from Sony A7R2 to Leica SL and suspect many old SLR lenses like Contax will fare better on the Leica platform. Interestingly, Novoflex, whose products I admire greatly, seems to have gone banco on adapters for the SL so have presumably had some sort of assurance from Leica on long term plans for this platform.

More pertinent to this thread, I am quite interested in 180-200mm options for this camera. Probably, I should initiate another topic but it seems to segue from this one. I am planning to use an old Minolta 200/2.8 but there are other possibilities, including options from Contax, Voigtlander (180/4) and Leica (R80-200/4, R180/2.8).

Any observations welcome and hope this is not hijacking the thread.
