Congrats you two. (Taylor & sebboh)
I may have found my SSC 85/1.2 Asph. I'm just waiting to hear back.

I think my next lens will be the Contax 28/2(Hollywood), and I'm thinking of pairing it with the 35-70, it's either the zoom or two more primes, opinions?
Also, which versions? I was thinking AEG MM.... But I'm not totally versed in the Contax line.
Other options are welcome.
Thanks.

Finally found a nice 90mm

Tried it for a couple of days and its very sharp and focuses pretty easy on the M9.
Also very compact and light weight for a 90, especially compared to the 90 cron APO.

I can cross the SSC 85/1.2 Aspherical off my list.
A nice clean copy is on it's way to me.

Just bought:
Minolta Chiyoda Kogaku Super Rokkor 5cm f/1.8 LTM (looks like they swapped Chiyoda and Chiyoko at some point, didn't know that).
Minolta Chiyoko Kogaku Super Rokkor 8.5cm f/2.8 LTM

AE and MM are mutually exclusive. It's the G (Germany) and J (Japan) that you'll see matched with them, and most often its AEG and MMJ but I know there are AEJs. I don't know if there are MMGs. There's some sort of difference in the mount, I assume in the aperture control, since adapters for Canon and E-mount work on either AE or MM.

Hollywood's okay, but it's a little overpriced at the going rate. You can save some cash and get a, in my opinion, better lens going with the ZF 28/2.

Congrats on the 85! I would love to see samples if you have time and the inclination.

Thanks for the feedback, unfortunately I just blew my disposable cash on the 85/1.2 and two Super Rokkor's above, so it may be a while till I can buy anything else.
I've been missing my 85/1.2LII for a while now, well since I stopped using AF it hardly got used, so I'm looking forward to it.

There are MMG's, in fact I have two of them. As far as I know, they are identical to any other made in Japan MM lens, however they were made in West Germany.

I also bought the nFD 20/2.8, and it arrived here in Grand Canyon a few days ago. It's amazingly sharp for landscape stuff, but it does suffer from coma wide open (for star shots).

Sadly most canon FD lenses seem to suffer from coma, I need to test all the lenses I've bought in the last year to see which are corrected enough to use.
My OM 21/3.5 was my best corrected wide angle lens.

Cool. Thanks, Mat. Hey, do you know if they ever made the S-Planar 60 Macro in MM or was it just the C-Planar?

No prob!

To answer your question, I believe that when they went to the MM mount, it changed to the 1:2 C-Planar. I could be wrong though.

AFAIK S-Makro Planar 60/2.8 and Makro Planar 100/2.8 C/Y were only AE.

Would that be a Helios 58/2 or is there a 55 that I don't know about?
