Contax G-lenses: 45mm f/2 & 90mm f/2.8

by Todd on December 31, 2012

I took the Contax G2 out for a quick drive today, to finish a roll of Portra 160 VC that I started just before Thanksgiving. I’ve posted shots from the 45 a few times, but I think this may be the first time I’ve posted anything from the 90. I don’t have time to scan […]
