I got a 58mm Biotar. I'm thinking of sending the 3 exterior pieces out for black anodizing.






It took a long time to get this back together, but it will be a fun lens.






Wow that looks really sweet! From the body alone, it looks like a Cosina-made lens.

Nice...I converted mine over to EOS with the EdMika kit, and it is awesome.

Have fun with it!

Hm, I got myself the Contax G90 again, this time with the Metabones adapter. It still is a great lens IF you nail focus with those adapters. Waiting for the AF adapter - would have loved if Metabones would have made one.

I loved the optics of my G90. I sold it for far too cheap a few months back. I've decided to replace it's spot with a Bokina (tokina at-x 90/2.5)

My G28 plays wonderfully with it's adapter. The 45 is a bit rougher. My G90 hated the fotodiox adapter I had.

You bought a Zeiss 50/1.4 and a right-way-mirror?

Please say who makes an AF adapter for the G90, and what fit (Sony E?)

thanks,
David

That CZ 50/1.4 lens works beautifully on my 5D Mk III.

Too bad the Canon FL 55/1.2 is usable only at small ranges or in live view, I also like that lens...it was my 2nd alt

Awesome! Although for your work I wonder if a 6x7 camera wouldn't work better?

I'm excited!

I have a Pentax 6x7 with the 105 (that I LOVE). And for that matter, I also already have a Rollei 2.8F (that I also love).

So we'll see if the Hassy sticks around! I've always wanted one.

Hehe, nice one.

Lens, camera and KatzEye focusing screen. Actually my first own "worth something" alt lens. And probably not last (infectious bug that Zeiss one).

Yea saw few pics from other FFs too and I think Im kinda wasting it on S5. Quite a bit more resolution than S5 can do..

Hehe, so now you will be out there, focusing on 3D-looking things 2-5m away with an interesting background, at f/1.4-f/2 Try a stitch as well.
