I have Contax NX camera with Planar 50/1.4f lens. I'm trying to use depth-of field review button but I don't see any effect of pressing it in my viewfinder. Is that a problem with my camera or I'm doing something wrong? Are there any settings that should be set up to be able to use that feature? Thank you.

Hi,

Just to eliminate the most basic possible problem, what aperture value are you setting? Unless you stop the lens down to around f/5.8 or f/8, then you might not notice much effect. If you choose a narrow aperture and press the DoF preview button, you should see the diaphragm operate when you look into the front of the lens. If you don't maybe your camera has a faulty button?

>Also there is a Custom Function that controls the button to toggle or to opporate only when held. Check your manual or if you don't have one I'll dig up mine and check.

Dear Mr. Nunan. Thank You for your information. I did everything what you said, but I don't know what is the problem. May be it is the problem of button functioning. I use object Planar, may be it is o'key that this button shouldnt work with such a model of camera.

Sounds like you may have a defective body or lens. I would not accept this. I would send it in to be repaired.
