All the Best!
I used the 35-70 f3.4 just the other day shooting a talking head green screen @ T4 around 70mm. It's a great lens but you wouldn't want to use a push/pull zoom all the time.
Yeah, my favorite Contax Zooms right now are the 28-85, and the 80-200. Love the 80-200 - soo small, and soo good looking. Everything that thing shoots just looks GOOD. Used the 300 F4 on a skate shoot this weekend, AND the Yashica 500 F8 mirror lens...THAT was fun!
As a follow up to this discussion, I tested my 50 1.7 against one of my 50 1.4...and I was shocked:
The Contax 50 1.7 is RAZOR SHARP wide open. Like...MIND BOGGELINGLY sharp. It blows away the 1.4 wide open.
And what's even more astounding is there is room for improvement:
I have an older 50 1.7 AE, but I know for a fact that the newer 50 1.7 MM's with serial codes starting with an 8 got EVEN SHARPER.
