Thanks. I bought the body...completely stripped down and refurbed, from Peter Robinson.

I haven't shot a roll yet, but looks great. Highly recommended.

A bit of nostalgia for me. The Contax 139Q was my first SLR.

135/2's not close enough? APO, Carsten!

Actually I agree, I couldn't push those buttons very well. Luckily they're ones you don't need often (well, maybe the backlight).

That lens, by the way, is unbelievable. Even wide open it's too sharp for portraits (even for my girlfriend who's only 22)! I'm going to have to soften in post.


At least it has a top LCD that serves a purpose. The one on the a900 is questionable, at best.

Right, when that is finally out, that is one less reason to go Sony A-mount, IMO.

I don't know. I'm really looking forward to having a stabilized 135/2.

Looking forward to seeing some shots with it, I do like my Super-Tak 85/1.9 a whole lot.

Just got a Contax C/Y 35mm F1.4 Distagon and a Kiron 28mm F2.0 FD mount.

Will be fun to see how they work on the NEX-7
