Given the discussion elsewhere on the need to address problems with Canon lenses before any further developments in numbers of pixels, I would be interested in trying my medium format lenses on my Canon SLRs.

I know that there is a company that makes such adaptors, but I can't find it.

Does someone know what it's called?

Has anyone ever tried Hassie lenses on a Canon?

Many thanks.

I've just dipped a toe in that water with a Contax 25mm on a Canon/Contax adapter. First impressions on the Contax versus the Canon 24-105 4.0IS and the Canon 24 L T&S is that so far the Contax is bringing up the rear. I appreciate the stellar Zeiss performer is the Contax 21mm, but before spending 1000+ on I wanted some re-assurance that there was a general Zeiss benefit.

Regarding putting Hassie lenses on a Canon, I can't see any advantages, and I say that as a Hasselblad enthusiast. There are no realistic wide-angle Hasselblad options, Canon already excells with their longer lenses, and most Hassie lenses are heavy enough to strain a Canon mount!

Gary,

Thanks for the reply.

The reason I brought it up is that Michael has been talking elsewhere about the need to improve lens quality first and foremost in Canon's lineup.

If that really is the issue, then I was just wondering who could one turn to using an adaptor.

My interest would be strictly in the wide/normal focal lengths; I never use telephotos, so  Canon's superiority here is not important to me.

But, if I could get a jump in resolution switching to Zeiss, for example..............

Wouldn't it be great if someone borrowed a few adaptors from Zork and did a comperhensive test.

Now there's a thought!

There has been use of the 645 Pentax 35mm for panoramas.   Here's one link:
