Template issuse

I just noticed that the template I'm using is broken. Not sure what happened, but it may take some time to fix it.

Let's try 135mm again

This is my second 135mm lens. I tried a Vivitar 135mm f/2.3 before, but wasn't too happy with it. Mechanically it's a beautiful lens, hefty and nicely built. But too much CA, coupled with the Fuji X-E1 with its slow EVF in dim light made me sell the Vivitar. The weight also made it nose heavy on the Fuji. I also didn't have the Zhongyi at the time, so effectively it was a 200mm lens. 

Now I have a Contax 135mm f/2.8. Smaller and lighter than the Vivitar, but still a solid lens. Coupled with the faster refresh rates on the EVFs of the Fuji X-E2 and X-T1 (did I mention that I have an X-T1?), this lens is a better fit.

So far I've only managed to take it on two outings, but I'm happy with what I see. It's not as sharp as the other Contax/Zeiss lenses wide open, but it does have the slightly nervous bokeh of its siblings. The version I have is an AEJ, so it does show a bit of the ninja star. 

Overall, not a bad buy. Now, on to some samples.
