Contax and Leica “Normal” Lenses
Old lens life is the crossing of a sea, where we meet in the same narrow ship. The Contax G45 lenses are every bit as good as Leica non-ASPH 50 lenses. The G45 have slightly redder in color rendition. And the Leica is silky smooth. I took some great images with it, the G45 being my favorite with G1.
The Contax 45mm f2 is an autofocus rangefinder lens for the Contax G1 and G2 cameras, that offer the distinct ZEISS look; a unique, unrivaled image quality defined by its sharpness, color, and contrast. Shooting at f/2 the image appears to pop out of the background.
Don’t worry ti is not a very fast lens. By increasing the distance between the background and your subject (0.5 -1meters), you can see smooth bokeh in images. Other distances are a bit harsh.
