    As above really, I am looking for another lens to go with my CV75mm and have narrowed it down to these two. Only problem with the Zeiss is that you need a special adapter with a wheel.

    Any opinions welcome :smile:

    they are both great, and your post shows you well understand the primary difference between them when used on micro4\3

    i would get the one that is less expensive , or if speed is an issue the cv . it great wide open and bokeh is great

    but the more difficult to focus contax has an edge in IQ,... but not a great one.
