New things – Contax RTS III, Zeiss 25mm & Zeiss 18mm

I had a bit of a protracted and unsatisfactory purchase from an Oxfam shop via eBay recently, however it worked out OK in the end I got an RTS III with a 25/2.8 MMJ Distagon, in place of the 28/2.8 that was originally advertised, OK it was full of Fungus but in the end that has cleaned up nicely (albeit I had to spend an extra £100 to sort it out). I’ve also sold off a lot of my other non-Zeiss lenses via eBay which has freed up some cash to allow the purchase of the long wanted 18mm Distagon. It’s a vast improvement over my Tamron 17mm and the rendering is everything I’d hoped for! Here are a couple scenics from a recent trip to Edinburgh, all on the A7r as I’ve yet to get to grips with the beast that is the RTS III.
