    Please accept my apology that I submitted the same sale threads twice. It was my first time posting for sale and I got an error message upon the 1st submit and hence the 2nd thread. I have marked one of the threads completed.

    Thanks,

    Contax G Carl Zeiss Sonnar 90mm f/2.8 SOLD

    Thank you for the comment. I may have a long way to go on this selling thread. The Contax G 90mm f/2.8 is sold this morning. Both lenses are very appealing in their small Rangefinder form size. Both have a 46mm filter size, the size of the 90mm is really tiny for a 90mm.

    The 45mm with the TechArt adapter is a small setup that is like the size of the FE 35mm f/2.8, it is gorgeously looking. The AF from the TechArt is slow and clumsy but I can use the DMF to fine tune the focus.

    The metabones offer the best in MF experience and my copy has matching color. The caveat lies in difficult mounting and bulky adapter

    I am open to reasonable offers.

    Cheers,
    Hin

    It is a shame that I only take pictures when I have to sell the lens. It just shows how much a problem I have with LBA. All were shot with A7, mostly in f/2.0 and some in f/2.8 with TechArt AF adapter

    The TechArt is a thin adapter, hence smaller Contax with adapter when placed next to Takumar mounted on M42 to E adapter

    Wasn't a fan of the TechArt adapter but I *love* my Contax G lenses. That's a great price for a 45mm!

    Thanks for your input. I like both the Contax 45 and 90 very much but I find all the adapters disappointing and not matching up to the fine Contax Zeiss lenses. The TechArt is actually the best one in terms of build and small form factor but the version 2 AF is not desirable and prone to mis-focus and lots of frustration to use with MF on the tiny wheel on the TechArt adapter. The metabones provides the best MF but the big bulky adapter leave no room for my right hand fingers. The best value is in MF thin adapter that is like the Kipon one costing about $35 with brand name like Fotasy. If I ever go back to contax, I will likely skip the TechArt or Metabones and buy the thin MF adapter with Fotasy.

    It is sad to let go both 90 and 45 but I have sold both the TechArt adapter and the Contax 45mm on ebay. Marking this thread as SOLD.

    Thanks!
    Hin
