    Yeah I think it's a new iris. No Contax I know of has circular iris!

    Yeah we're LOVING our 24 FD, and yes does seem to match nicely! Just used it last week for the first time!

    Ignasio,

    The coating is different on my 20mm than the Zeiss. Also it has a nine blade iris that seems aftermarket as it opens well past 3.5 but the glass is limited to 3.5. Somewhat of a disappointment but a nice lens for S35.
