I am looking for a lens in the 60 mm range for my 5D2. The Contax CY Makro Planar C is light (270 grams) - but there are 2 concerns:
1-Can it be adapted to the 5D? http://www.pebbleplace.com/Personal/Contax_db.html
lists it as doubtful, but they also list the Distagon 2.8/35 as doubtful, and that lens works flawless on my 5D2 (CameraQuest adapter)
2-how good is it for infinity work if stopped down to say 5.6 or 8? Anybody have any opinions or experience? I was unable to find anything googling.
Why 60 mm?
The 50mm Planar does not fit the 5D2. Hoping for an upcoming mirrorless fullframe in fall this year, I will not at this time invest in lenses specific to the 5D2. IF the Planar C would adapt to the 5D2, it could be used on that for now, filling the rather large gap between the 35 Distagon and the 85 Sonnar.
Anticipating that mirrorless fullframe, I would then wet my lips for a Contax G Planar 2.0/45 (hoping that it could be adapted). The 60 mm would fit in nicely between that and the Sonnar 2.8/85, so it would not be waisted.
Thanks for any input.
