Zeiss Contax Forum for the classic Zeiss Contax I, II, III, IIa, IIIa , G series, and if you want to push it, the nice Contax point and shoots. Some spill over from the Kievs, the Soviet copy of the Contax II/III can also be expected. Plus the ONLY production camera ever made in classic Zeiss Contax Rangefinder mount WITH TTL metering ... the Voigtlander Bessa R2C.

Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar 2 5cm Contax rf

Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar 2 5cm, Contax RF. Fuji X-E2s. Adjusted in LR, Contrast and Clarity, and black level. I wanted to show what this lens can do when contrast and clarity are boosted.

Some very interesting effects from this lens. The out-of-focus highlights in the picture of Toadflax and the rainbow flare in the penultimate image of the dead heads.

I'll have to dig my Fuji M and Amadeo adaptors out and try my black and nickel Sonnar out again on the X-Pro1. It certainly needs a lens hood to help with flare and increase contrast. I need to compare it to the chrome collapsible version I also own, and my 2.8cm f6.3 Leitz Hector.
