    Contax G Adapters

    I believed I had the same adapter off the bay last month when the price just dropped. The turn of the adapter is not smooth when the lens mounted but not too bad for MF, better than regular small wheel one. The built doesn't feel solid enough to last. If they improved it to ball ball baring that...

    Agree, I got mines off craigslist : 35/2.8 and 135/2.8 for $45 shipped. Both came with case too. The Hexanon Ar 135/3.2 also simply amazing too, and it is cheap.

    The Vivitar is MD mount,if you don't want to carry too many adapters you can take a look of Sigma 28 f2.8 mini-wide-macro ( I have the Konica mount same as the Hexanon AR ).

    Looks like those XBay guys really know what they are selling LOL. Just found Hex 135/3.2 with buy it now for $75 + shipping. I bought one last week for $21+6.5 shipping ( Ex+ condition with case ).

    Who want to pay $268.99 for Hex 40/1.8???

    Totally agree, I snap a Hex 135/3.2 for $20 last week and it is a pretty sharp lens too. For the money of that 40/1.8 I will consider either the Contax G 35/2 or 45/2, that's almost the same or less than that.

    Cheap but good lenses!!!

    Yea, I like the Hex 40 alot but just found out the Viv 28 not bad at all. Nothing fancy but sharp even at 2.5 and it can focus as close as 6" I think ( not the close focusing version but still got the nice minimum focus distance ). Still waiting for my Contax 90,should be here on Friday.

    OM 85/2 , 100/2.8 or Rokker 100/2.5 ?

    Thanks cosinaphile, the sharpness is good on 2.8 if not going for the max print. Very usable. Most lenses stop down to 8 will have great sharpness that will not surprise me. But it looks good on wide open to me. BTW most review said that the rokkor 45/2 is not a sharp lens but I found my...

    Cosinaphile, do you have any picture took by the Contax 90/2.8 on your gallery? The lens runs about 200 on Ebay plus the Contax G to MFT adapter $ 70. I couldn't find gallery on the web for that lens. Cheer

    OM 85/2 , 100/2.8 or Rokker 100/2.5 ?

    Thanks guys, I was searching on the rokkorfile too but can't found any about 100/2.5. I know the rokkor 85/2 is good but the price just set me away. The OM 85/2 is about $250 and the 100/2.8 and rokkor 100/2.5 are under $150. Tough call :smile:

    HorusBennu 50mm F1.7

    I think it was a rebranded Phenix, if you remember another Chinese camera brand - " Seagull". Both Phenix and Seagull in China still making cameras and lenses, basically both were optical factories back to the 70s. Phenix doesn't has the technology to made autofocus lenses yet, they only...

    HorusBennu 50mm F1.7

    I believed it is made in China and the local price there should be like US$25-30. The Phenix brand also have some other manual focus lenses for PK mount. As I read from the internet , Phenix also provided glasses for some other oversea name brand too.
