How is focusing with contax g lenses? I've read conflicting opinions... are you using a kipon?

It's OK. I'm using a cheap eBay clone of the Kipon. It works fine, but it's a little rough at times. It's rough as a system, because the lens is perfectly smooth when using a screwdriver, and the adapter is pretty smooth without the lens attached, but when attached, it's a little rougher. However, over time it's gotten smoother and smoother, and while not perfect yet, it's not bad any more. Hopefully another week or so and it'll be perfect.

I've thought about the Metabones adapter, which I hear has the best precision and focusing, but it's also very heavy, so I'm sticking with my cheapie until there's a reason not to.

Many thanks tardegardo! Yeah, love Italian film and Fellini of course. It is a bit cinematic perhaps... Anyway, he made excellent espresso!

Fantastic images I really like the look of the Fuji shots.
I've been very tempted to get an X-Pro 1 to replace my canon 5d and primes that I love but just find to big to use regularly.
I've recently acquired a Sony RX1 which is fantastic and with me all the time but I'd love something a little more versatile to go with it and have been looking at the NEX's and Olympus OM-D as well as the Fuji.
The Fuji seems more appealing but the only thing that has stopped me clicking the buy button is the autofocus speed.
Has the new firmware really improved it significantly.
Thanks in advance.

Most will say emphatically, yes. The 35 was probably the slowest focus lens and I saw marked improvement after the latest update. With that said, I had the 18-55 zoom arrive today and to be totally honest - I was thinking there was a problem focusing because it was so quiet and fast! Wow - that thing focuses with absolutely no problem! Makes me hopeful for the other lenses I intend to purchase (the 23 and 55-200 being the first two).

Thanks was thinking primes mainly but now you've got me thinking, what is the image quality like on the 18-55.
