I've always wanted a really wide angle lens. I would have bought one for my old Contax G, but as you might recall, the 16 F8 was hugely expensive, and also vignetted like crazy. Times have changed. The pix taken with this lens on Flickr convinced me it would be something special. Looking forward to receiving the machine in a week or so,
Hallo, ein Linsenforum habe ich nicht gefunden, daher erlaube ich mir die Frage hier zu stellen: Hat einer von umgebaute Contax G Linsen für seine M-Leica? Mich würden persönlöich Erfahrungen sehr interssieren. Evtl. hat sogar eine vn Euch selbst Hand die Linsen gelegt? Wer jetzt mit meiner Frage gar nichts anzufangen weiß, dem lege ich folgendne link ans Herz: Contax G to Leica M Lens Conversions der führte mich zum Hersteller: Converted Contax G lens for Leica M Packages | japan exposures Die Idee finde ich sehr interessant, einen Konatktaufnahme habe ich allerdings noch nicht erreichen können. gute Zeit Thomas
And I can't wait for an upgraded M so I can get a camera with decent lenses... I've been thinking about the Olympus E-P1 for a month or two now, and really, really liked it - that is, until I saw the lens tests. There is a line from a reviewer about the movie, "2010"... Let me see if I can remember it. "How can a spacecraft (referring to the Russian spacecraft Alexi Leonov) from ten years in the future (of the movie 2001) look like it is twenty years older?" Something like that anyway... The E-P1 reminds me a lot of my Contax G1 and G2 - sans finder of course. However, the zoom lens that comes with it, although of the same approximate range and F-stop as the Contax zoom Contax G System , has tons more distortion. The pancake does nothing for me. How is it that twenty years ago (or so) Contax could make a lens system for a new type of RF (made of titanium!) that didn't need correction in software, didn't have loads of CA, and with all the modern tech we have now, Oly can't? It's as if Apple had decided to make a new, tiny iPod for 2009 that had a black and white display and 10GB of memory and sold for $800. Why can't manufacturers these days make a small camera with a zoom, a great set of primes, reliable and tough, with fast focus and a full frame sensor? If Contax could do it all those years ago, with by our standards primitive processors and electronics, why the frell can't it be done now? This is exceedingly discouraging. Sincerely, Dana Kincaid
