Iscorama and Contax Zeiss

Recommended Posts

Hi Rudolf,

Sorry to hear you didn't have the same experience with Contax Zeiss lenses.  I do agree with you that the AEG and MMJ versions render colors differently, and you can see the evidence of this in my 3 comparison pictures above (the shot of the bananas and Russian doll on the kitchen counter).  The 28mm f2 lens is an AE, and you can see it has a very slight warmer tone compared to the 50mm f1.4 and 100mm f2 (which are both MM).

 

My Canon FD 50mm f1.4 was the first lens I've owned, so I'm very familiar with its look and was one of my favorite lens for many years.  But in my experience it's not in the same league as my Contax Zeiss lens in terms of sharpness, especially in the corners.

Are macro lenses harder to use with an anamorphic set up? Does the front element rotate? Do have to run it separated on rails? How are the coatings? Does it kill the flares? I'm after exteme sharpness wide open but maintain the flares. I know t* coatings are known to kill flares.

      Hi folks. Been trying to consolidate my gear lately so here's a bunch of stuff for sale. Feel free to message me for more pics/information.
      Up first is the venerable Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 lens (Canon EF mount) also included as an extra is brand new cinemorph anamorphic filter from Vid-Atlantic. Lens is in great shape, comes front and rear caps, hood, protective case and original box. 
      $675



      Nikkor 28mm f2.8 AI-s
      Andy Lee has called this lens one of the greatest wide angles ever made by Nikon, extremely little distortion, and truly impressive almost macro-like close focus. This one has been loved a bit, but glass is clean and scratch free, no fungus or haze. Aperture blades do sho just the tiniest bit of oil, but they're snappy and open and close just fine. 
      $125
       



      Edelkrone QuickRelease One. 

      I bought this after Matthias Burling reviewed it, but it never quite fit into my workflow the way I hoped it would. Cool piece of kit for run and gun though. Comes with original case as well. 
      $40
       


      Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm f/2.4 (RED MC Version)
      This lens is in absolutely PERFECT condition. I just had it completely disassembled by professionals and they cleaned the optics and regreased the focus mechanism so there is not even a speck of dust to be seen. This lens is very well-regarded, and is widely considered to be the very best of the East German Zeiss lenses. Superb close focus, wonderful character. 
      $325
       




      Samsung NX 30mm f/2 
      Great shape, front and rear lens caps, sharpest prime for NX system. 
       



      Samsung NX 50-200mm OIS III
      Third and latest edition of this very nice, compact, convenient kit zoom for the NX system. If you can't afford the 50-150mm and just need the extra reach, this lens is worth it. 
      $150
       



      Sigma 30mm f1.4 Nikon mount (with Canon adapter/aperture lever)
      This lens is in flawless condition. I bought it but ended up never using it, comes with original box, lens caps, warranty information, very clean. 
      $200
