May someone help me to find some link in this forum, where threads how to switch in Digital from Contax? many thanks.
In this case your options a limited. You can use Contax-Zeiss lenses with C/Y mount on Canon DSLRs with an adapter. Manual focus and only aperture priority.the first you wrote dirk, use Contax body or Zeiss MM T* lenses, or both, in a digital domain.
What was bad about the results?I just tried to adapt Canon EOS 1 with bad results
o.k., then there is definitely something wrong with your adapter. You should be able to fokus tack sharp with all those lenses. I assume you meant the Zeiss 85/2.8? Because there is no 80/2.0 with C/Y mount...No focus, neither in manual. Tested with 21mm, 50mm f1.7, 80mm f.2. Ring adapter was japaneese, don't remember brand, it was red.
He wrote in his introduction that he is using a Contax 159. So no medium format. I had the same thought when I read Zeiss 80/2.0, which is the lens for the Contax 645. This is why I checked the introduction againWhich Contax body do you have? Phase One makes digital backs for Contax 645.
