    It's fantastic.
    Yes Mattew, the 85mm 1.2 is a brillant lens and I use it all the time.

    Hi all,

    Been going through the posts in this thread the last several weeks and all the info has been really helpful. So I went ahead and started purchasing a set for myself.

    I just received The 35mm 1.4 mmj from Japan and the listing had it in mint condition with no scratches, fungus, haze, etc.

    Everything looks good except this mark inside the lens near the rear element (doesnít seem like itís actually on the rear element...). Is this fungus? Is it a part of the coating that has come off after a cleaning? Iím assuming this is going to affect images especially when stopped down?

    I know this might be more of a general lens question but thought someone might have had similar issues and be able to share if this greatly impacts performance. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    You could do tests to see how it affects the image but I would return it if I were you.

    If you paid for mint I wouldn’t accept it.

    Thanks for the responses - I've already sent it back for a refund but still have no idea what that mark is...

    Hi guys, anyone knows where to buy the little screws that use to lock the Leitax mount(wide version) on the Contax Zeiss lenses?

    Am I right in thinking you can only get the 18mm in MM?

    No, you can get an AE as well.
