Had been keeping an eye out for one of those for a while. This copy is practically mint.
The rear shroud prevents mounting on the 5D with an adapter. Luckily this shroud can simply be (reversibly) removed after removing 3 small screws. Now it mounts just fine.

Please post some pics from it, I've always liked the feel that this lens produces.

Will do, but might be a while still. Hopefully I get a chance on the weekend to go for a walk. Spring is 4 weeks early here in south-west Germany this year (compared to being 7 weeks late last year) so with a bit of luck there'll be good light rather than grey-in-grey.

Nearing the end of the Fuji rebates I picked up the XF 14mm 2.8.

Leica 24mm f/3.8 Elmar-M ASPH. This thing is crazy-sharp.

Canon FD 35mm f2 SSC Version I (concave front element).
A bit on the heavy side, but very impressive IQ.

Finally found a Canon FD 35/2.8 TS at a good price. Also picked up an FD 35-70/2.8-3.5 SSC. Short of an FD 200/1.8L falling into my lap for an unheard of price, that should cap off my Canon purchases.

Nice!
I'd like to hear your opinion on the zoom once you have used it some, I already know you'll like the T/S.

I add my views to those of LightShow, the FD TS 35/2.8 is a wonderful thing

Went to a camera fair today, hoping to sell off a few things.

Well, as is predictable, the small number of dealers there were more about selling, or buying at trade prices, so I bought a couple of lenses instead...

My first Minolta lens, an MC Rokkor PF 58/1.4

and

a Tomioka (Auto Chinon) 55/1.2. I found my 20-30 yr old M42 - PK adapter, added a cheapie PK-E-mount adapter, so now it's sitting on my A7R waiting to be tried in a few seconds... I have no idea if this lens is a dog or not, we'll see.

It should be interesting, but I wouldn't expect razor sharp anything till stopped down past 5.6 if at all, but you never know till you try it.

Oh, yeah, the T/S is an old friend (though my first copy had been EF-converted). I'm excited about the zoom, which feels odd to type because I am much more a prime guy. But the 20-35 and 80-200L's have been so useful, I'm curious to see if this can stack up well between those two. It just arrived. I'll post samples when I get something worth sharing.

Contax Makro-Sonnar T* 100mm f/2.8 N-EOS

A brick of a lens, with rendering and sharpness. I love it.

Nice!
Did you have a review unit beforehand?
I will be interested in your findings, and especially photos shared.
Debating seriously whether to order this now, or wait for sales.
I did pickup the XF55-200 on the recent sale.
