Carl Zeiss Sonar 85mm f/2.8 for Contax-Yashica


Active Member
Just a few shots using this lens wide open, to exemplify its quality on the Lumix S5. A brilliant lens released in 1975. Only 60 mm long and 230 g in weight. Already sharp at f/2.8. Typical high contrast. Low distortion (perhaps none). No CA. Only five pieces of glass.

Processed using Affinity Photo and my usual development settings. Nothing extra.

All my models are cats. Here's Rin-Rin.
