I picked up a Carl Zeiss Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 in a CY mount earlier this year, and used it on my Fuji X-E1. I liked the rendering of the images I took, but I really wanted to see what it could do on a full-frame body. Ultimately I found a Yashica FX-3 Super 2000 to use with it. The body is compact, and the meter runs off available alkaline batteries. The “2000” at the end of the name means it has a max shutter speed of 1/2000; it also meters up to ISO 3200.

I like the way this first roll turned out. My only gripe is shots that I thought were in focus wide open at f/1.4 or f/2 turned out to be off. Normally I don’t have that happen when I’ve got a viewfinder with a split screen focus the way this camera does. I do give the camera metering good marks – nothing seemed over or underexposed on this roll.
