While I acquired this lens as part of a Contax G1 set, mainly to get hold of the much-lauded 45/2 Planar, it’s this 28/2.8 Biogon that has become one of my favourites. When used on the Fuji X-mount cameras, its focal length is more equivalent to the 45 as it would be natively on full frame, and it works really nicely as a walk-around lens.
Sharpness seems good and it sits really nicely on the X-Pro3, both in terms of balance and looks. It even sits nicely on the much smaller X-E3 body. Using the Contax lenses adapted means an adapter with built-in focus ring, which is far from ideal in terms of ergonomics, but I still really enjoy using this lens.
Here’s a sample image taken with the Zeiss Biogon 28/2.8 Contax G:
