Hollywood 28mm 2.0 c/y Zeiss Contax


Well-Known Member
Learned this the hard way and then tested against other lenses. But when the Hollywood is pointed at multiple light sources it will more readily that other Zeiss lenses produce light aliases and aberrations. The 35 1.4 and the 21 2.8 seem 10-20x immune to this. I'll post an example.


I'd be most interested to see your example as I've never had this problem with mine. I do know of someone else who suffered from it and he found that there was a problem with the floating element; I was never able to follow-up with him as to whether a repair fixed the issue or not.
