Zeiss 85T*FL + EOS M

Testing on Zeiss 85T*FL (30X eye piece), with CANON EOS M (22mmF2 Lens),
using home made PVC adapter.
No obvious vignetting. Image quality better than coolpix4500.
So far so good. Im happy with it.
Bird photo below, resize only in DPP, no crop or other adjustment.

I use and EOS M with my Swaro and have found that the 40mm EF pancake lens gives the best results. You need the EF-M adapter to use it but it does deliver some nice results and is worth a try if you know someone with the lens.
