I recently went ‘home’ to Scotland and grabbed a few shots of places and houses that were important to me growing up (my grandparents houses in both cases). I chose to shoot with my recently acquired Zeiss 28mm f/2.8 AEJ. This lens is a replacement for one I owned when I first started getting in to the Contax system, sold on at a point when I needed to update part of my Canon outfit. That previous copy was mint and boxed while this is – to say the least – a bit rough round the edges with marking to the paint and plenty of dust inside. I guess that’s why Ffordes were knocking it out at an affordable price of £150, which is a good deal for any version of this particular lens nowadays. Anyway looking at the images I’ve made, the optics are clearly in good shape, although it was stopped down to f/5.6-8 for all of these shots. There’s plenty of detail and low distortion in evidence throughout.
