Geez hodad......those are nice shots. Did you sharpen those or are they OOC?
What adapter are you using?
well, I sharpen everything as I usually work from raw but this one
was one of my first shots, hand held, straight jpg......
the adapter is the one which circles the lens completely.
So far it isn't as smooth as I was hoping for. It might
wear in though.....
Here are some more from the Contax Zeiss Planar G 45/2:
Above: A very good result, actually beating the touted Zuiko Digital 50/2 Macro
Above: Very very good
Above: Wide open, in a back yard of an office, overcast. I know, Barnack says "No statues" but...
Above: You judge... (a 100% crop of the previous image)
Above: Finally a more "normal" image, wide open handheld and processed to look as it does. The pure original version looks sharper (if that should be needed)
Very nice Jonas......just curious, what adapter are you using?
I have tried the Lens-workshop focusing ring type adapter but as I'm using a g1 it doesn't suits my fingers (due to the protruding flash house). So, have the 90/2.8 with that adapter up for sale hoping somebody with a GF or Pen camera would like to have it.
I use the Kipon geared wheel adapter.
Venus and St. Ignatius
I needed a sunset photo as a part of a conversation on Facebook. Since my new Metabones adapter arrived today, my legacy lens for the next few days is the Contax 45mm.
The sunset wasn't very interesting, but shortly thereafter Venus became visible in the dusk.
G2 ISO100 1.6sec
Lens at f/5.6

Red, White and Blue
Red, white and blue ... or ... Reloading the printer
Just a test shot originally (how closely can I focus?).
I really like the bokeh on this lens, and look forward to playing more with it.

Both images are really great ! Thanks for sharing.
Great series, my fav is the cat image (I'm a cat lover).
45mm contax lens
Hello has anybody shot with this 45mm contax g lens on m4/3 for product or furniture shots to give a more less converging vertical perspective, so you have less to do in Photo shop. thanks Dennis
Contax 45mm + Metabones adapter. My experience
I've got the 45mm with metabones adapter.
First day I was 2 hours trying to put the adapter on the lens, but I was't able to do it.
Second day I could put it on, after one hour, but it didn't work fine.
Third day I was trying to get better the functioning turning the wheel repeatedly.
After a week I got that the functioning were enough good in one direction, but not very good in the other.
After two weeks I changed the adapter and put it on the 90mm. It worked much better, but when I changed the adapter to the 45mm, it didn't work fine again.
After one month, putting on and putting out the adapter I have found the good position, the wheel turn perfectly in one direction and "almost" perfectly in the other.
SO I WON'T PUT OUT THE ADAPTER EVER AGAIN.
And now, I love this lens.
This photo is at f2, with no processing, no sharperning, only opened with lightroom 2 and saved as jpg.
And now a 100% crop
If anyone wants, I can send the RAW.
A really great lens I think.
just got this lens myself. still playing around with it. i like it so far. still need to get a handle on manual focusing. got a decent shot of my daughter. i hope to have her back from NICU soon. be tough little girl.

The wild sunflowers are in full bloom right now, I grabbed a few shots using the Contax 45 - mostly shot at f 2.8. I love this lens, I just wish the adaptor worked a little more smoothly!
