    Almost forgot that I have this lens. Its been a while since I last used this. This lens has a "C" mark so it was design for use with a Contax RF body. My Amadeo adapter happen to be for Contax RF so a perfect match. Here are some pictures I took of my girls today.

    This lens is easily found in Leica thread mount- all of them are great.

    LTM lenses have higher prices than corresponding Contax mount lenses, so you save by choosing the latter. The "price" for doing so is the need for an adapter. It also adds weight as Amedeo's adapters are very well built ... and heavy.

    The Telephoto LTM lenses are reasonable, but the price of S-Mount and Contax mount lenses seem to be way down in the last few years.

    great shots. Wonder how this compares to the C.Z. 85mm F2 in Contax RF?
