    Hello,

    I wonder it is worth a set composed of a G2 with 28/2,8 45/2 in place of
    a Canon SLR with 28/2,8 and 50/1.8 ?
    Does anyone has ever experiences this migration ?
    Usage is slide projection.

    Regards

    The picture at link below was shot with the Biogon 28 f2.8 on Fuji
    Velvia 50, by John Shephard. I doubt any "SLR" lenses could compare to
    the Zeiss T* Lenses, except maybe the Leica R series lenses.

    Nice shot but i'd prefer a direct comparison.

  4. You are comparing some of the sharpest lenses in history to some fairly
    average performers. An od suggestion would be to go out and buy a G1 and
    those lenses. Try 'em. If you do not see the worth comparitivly, sell them
    on ebay. You will posibly lose the ebay fees.

    Oh, I converted from my EOS 3 with assorted lenses to a Full G1 kit
    (21/28/35/45/90). My EOS 3 was going to go on sale today if I had gotten
    home earlier:)

    If I wanted a rangefinder camera I'd look at M Leica anyway but
    especially after the recent Zeiss announcement. And if you think the
    difference vis-a-vis pro glass from any mainstream system is going to
    be radical, you're simply wrong. It's a subtle matter of choosing to
    correct some things differently. Zeiss and Leitz have the same
    computers and the same materials as the Japanese. It won't sell
    pictures, any more than if a hit record made with a Neumann mic or a
    vintage Les Paul had used a modern quality condenser mic or if the
    guitarist had a Tokai Love Rock with Seymour Duncans. Anyone who says
    otherwise is blowing shit up your ass.

    Any site where anyone had the good idea to compare (scans for example) ?

  7. Depends on if you like seeing where your lens is focused or not, really.
    Otherwise, ergonomics is the key.
    Customer of mine switched from a Canon kit to a Contax RF kit and was
    delighted with his rather mediocre, blown out slides- but that was his
    fault, not the cameras, and at least he was happy.

    Keep in mind that whatever you see in the projected images

    depends as much on the projector lens as the camera lens.

    Do you miss the spot metering ?

  12. No. Actually I get some very well mixed exposures from the G1. It is
    actually the camera I trust the most... as long as I am not looking for a
    quick synch (got caught on that one, last time I was on location, skipped my
    mind when switching between my DSLR and my G1). I absolutly love the look
    and the reliable exposure meter.

    How much could cost a used G2 with planar 45/2 ?
