Comparison of Carl Zeiss CY lenses with OM Zuiko users help please


Well-Known Member
Hi all,

I believe this is the correct place to list this, as it primarily concerns the Contax C/Y lenses.

Could any users who have used both the C/Y lenses and the older Zuiko OM lenses give me a good idea of how they compare in all respects. I particularly would like info on image quality comparisons and colour reproduction etc.

I want a small & light SLR outfit for overseas trips and the OM gear appeals greatly. Rangefinders do not suit my shooting requirements unfortunately.

cheers for all help..Steve.M.
