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.

Yesterday I received a pre war Carl Zeiss Jena 135mm f4 Sonnar (1937)from e-bay for my Contax iia; adapted it to my Fujifilm XT-2; suspect its not coated, a bit sensitive in bright sun...

Rick,

Sonnar 1.5 wide open at a slow shutter speed?

Considering the weather/light conditions a very good shot.

Bill

I'm fairly certain I took that one with 1/25 at f/2.
I need to go over my Vuescan settings as I've been getting rather flat results after the last update.

Light was better on Day 2
